Happy Belated Passover and Happy Easter! Nate’s parents just drove off to the airport after a completely perfect visit this week. We celebrated Easter in all its glory yesterday and it was a wonderful day full of delicious food and even better memories.
Nate’s mom always has a million fun tricks up her sleeve. One of the many this week was decorating Easter cupcakes. We made mini cupcakes, so for these cute carrots, she sat down with Cate and actually cut up mini carrots into even minier, perfectly shaped carrots to decorate the cupcakes with. The green carrot tops are curly parsley pieces. They were complete adorable (although we noticed this morning they don’t really last over time…mental note!). For the nest cupcakes, she mixed green food coloring with coconut and then had Cate dip the frosted cupcakes into the coconut, finishing the nests off with a few eggs (i.e. jelly beans). This is just one of the many reasons grandmothers are magical.
Time for a menu already? Wowzah. This week is not going to be fancy. I have a lot of work coming up, we’ll be getting back into the school groove after spring break, and, well, we have oodles of ham to get creative with.
- Lentil Soup
- Western omelettes (ham, cheese, bell peppers, onions)
- Grilled ham & cheese sandwiches
- Anything but ham!!!! (Eat out)
- Salad and garlic bread
- Breakfast for dinner
Thank you all each week for sharing your menus – it’s wonderful! Can’t wait to see what you have planned for this week! And, if you’re making and/or eating an Easter feast today, happy cooking and enjoy!
