I'm still not sure what we're going to eat for Easter dinner, but we did start our Easter baskets today! A half peck "bushel"basket for everyone in the house, the kind sold at Michaels with a wire and wood handle, which we're lining with bandanas. I couldn't resist a few treats from their $1 and "everything under $5" sections: some wooden animals, gardening things for my husband, and three cute stainless steel water bottles for myself and the girls. Oh, and a simple craft. So a good start!

We are doing a Ham and Turkey with the usual mashed potatoes green bean casserole homemade cranberry sauce so far.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

Thank you.
Im not sure what sides you have for Thanksgiving/Christmas? But what about potato egg salad? My Grandma makes the best! I try to do that and deviled eggs as well for Easter. I also make homemade mac & cheese!

We've decided on our Easter menu! Before anyone laughs, we're a very casual family, somewhere between grungy academic and happy blue collar. Our Easter outfits are jeans and nice shirts, our daughters' Easter dresses are Land's End polo dresses. Perhaps that'll put our menu in perspective:

15" (or more depending on whether our larger pot will work for even boiling) diameter egg bagel sandwich. You make the giant bagel, slice it "lengthwise," and fill it up like a nice sub. It really is very festive.

Then there will be chips, deviled eggs, salads, lambic for the adults, elderflower soda for the kids, and a cake from our local baker (and friend), possibly a Japanese cheesecake to drench in berries and whipped cream.

We alway's do egg's with the kids they really injoy doing that, And of course they get a couple small gift's, We dont give them much candy sence they are so young yet.

Meal wise Im not sure, we have a nice turkey in the frezzer that we might just use and too have with Im not sure yet, Guess I better start plaining soon...Sence it is only a few weeks away =)

On Good Friday I am always, always extremely sad and cry every year and without exception. I can't explain it, but on Easter Sunday I get this "happy, giddy" feeling inside because I know He is risen. It is not something that I concentrate on it is a feeling that just comes on its own. This may sound silly but I actually cry tears of joy on Easter at sunrise. My husband and I always make a special dinner but nothing too fancy as it is just us and our "furchildren."

Is everyone ready for Easter?

My house is decorated and I still have gifts to buy for three nephews and one niece. I plan to purchase these on Wednesday. I, also, need to find a dessert to make.

Two weeks to go!!!!

I love Easter, although our family don't really celebrate like we do at Cmas! We usually cook out and get together, which is good, but I wish we did it bigger! I just don't think we (just speaking for my family) do that holiday right.

We are doing some Easter baking this weekend and will have Easter Egg hunts this weekend and next weekend. We are also going to dye eggs next Saturday. Im so excited..my oldest son is 3 years old and I know he is going to have such a good time. On Easter day we go over my In Laws for a huge breakfast and my Grandma's for an early dinner!
