Last night, I’m reading to Taft and Trey and we got to talking about Easter. So, I say ask, what’s the real reason we celebrate Easter? Taft says "The Easter Bunny" to which Trey responds, "No, Taft it’s Jesus’ resignation."
Personally, so glad Jesus didn’t resign — and that He in fact followed through in a very personal and powerful way.
I love this Holiday. The preparations, the anticipation and the chance to sing some really great hymns. Did I mention the food. Easter is becoming almost as delicious for me as Thanksgiving. My dear friend MaryRuth emailed me a recipe for baked asparagus today. I was right in the middle of work, when this image [click
here] suddenly filled my mind with anticipation. Ham with pineapple glaze, orange rolls,
hashbrown potato casserole [I need to give you that recipe too,] baby
sweet pickles, olives, deviled eggs and some kind of yummy dessert. I keep
think I’m going to create a traditional Easter dessert, but I haven’t
done it yet — let me know what you do.
Then later today I was visiting a friend, and she had this cool magazine out on her table and I recognized the cover image — this delicious looking cake with strawberries from the webpage that MR sent. My friend then tells me it’s FREE — well, needless to say, when I get home, I go back to this site and sign right up!
Taft keeps opening the fridge and asking to see "the eggs" I took these really silly pics — but I’ll have to post tomorrow, cause I’m feeling way tired all of a sudden. Actually, I can’t do that — I’m flying to Portland for an all day meeting [very excited btw.] Man, I really need to go to bed, plane leaves at 6:00 and I’m not packed. Please tell me I’m not the only one that does stuff like post to her blog when she should be packing —
Here’s to deviled eggs in two days!
