As most of you know we usually host a very large Easter celebration at our house each year. About 30 family members attend and we have a large egg hunt for the kids. But sadly since that is not going to happen we have a large stash of candy that I bought left over from Valentine's trying to save money. YIKES! The good news I hate Twix and Kit Kats!
The other good news is that I can walk and not bump into anyone near my house...
Three miles of just hearing the birds, the trees squeaking in the breeze, and the brook running.
Not even cows in the pasture.
This is a very old cemetery do you think if they could talk there would be some wise words of comfort they could impart?
Just past this is a local farm that I have been buying eggs from for a couple of years now. This morning I went to get some eggs for my daughter and there was a line!!! What???( you actually knock on their house door and they bring the eggs, no farm store) There are no eggs in the stores here they have found my farmer. He could sell me one dozen to get me through.
We took the hours drive one way to my daughter's house today to drop off all the Easter basket items that were dropped at my house for Sweet B and I added the few things that I got. We had books for Sweet B and a puzzle for them and some odds and ends plus the dozen eggs. We set it on their door step,waved to them from the windows and set off back home. My arms ached to hug them all especially sweet B.
Being a baker I always have supplies in the house when I heard rumors 2 or 3 weeks ago I added more supplies. So I have plenty.
So I made Golden Pita bread from King Arthur Flour.
They came out pretty good if I do say so myself.
A facebook friend made bacon wrapped dates. So I made Gorgonzola cheese stuffed, bacon wrapped figs very very good.
I made homemade breaded chicken tenders last night so with the left overs I made a large salad and warmed the chicken,put it on top of the salad. I chopped up a couple of left over dates on my salad voila delicious!
I have been cleaning out like most of you and I found a whole drawer of letters that our daughter wrote to us from sleep away camp with a few letters to the Easter bunny and Santa thrown in. It has given me a laugh and I take a picture of a funny letter once in awhile and send it to my daughter. Truly a snap shot of time and so sweet.
Just what we need in these times.
I am still working but not sure for how much longer. Part of me is happy I am working but another part wants to go to bed and wake up when it is over. I hope you are all taking care and healthy.
Let me know what you are cooking or doing to pass the time.
Stay well my sweet blog friends.
