We had a nice little Easter weekend. Our first Easter not spent with extended family…but we still managed to consume just as much delicious food!
Saturday night, my lovely husband cooked me breakfast for dinner. It was so much fun. I was all smiles as he whipped up some perfect little pancakes, scrambled eggs and turkey bacon.
Is there anything better than the sight of the one you love mixing up some breakfast?
I can’t remember the last time I had pancakes. Look how beautiful.
As we started to munch our breakfast, we craved orange juice. And then we craved mimosas, so we popped open a bottle of champagne given to us as a wedding gift.
Just when I thought breakfast for dinner was a little “tame” for a couple in their twenties, we went and finished off a bottle of champagne.
This morning, the Easter sunshine came bursting through the windows. We got up early to break into our Easter baskets. Eric handed me mine.
After church, it was time to get ready for our Easter meal.
It was a team effort to prepare our first holiday turkey without a parent giving detailed instruction.
Pretty soon, our guests arrived. First, Andrea and Dave with adorable and delicous cupcakes and then Kimmy, with a massive tupperware bin filled with food and an easter decoration.
We devoured cheese, crackers and wine while waiting for the turkey to be done.
Dinner included roasted turkey, spaghetti squash au gratin, cranberry sauce, brocolli, bread, salad and more.
We miss our families every day, especially holidays, but we were so blessed to have wonderful friends to spend our holiday with.
After dinner we had peanut butter bars with chocolate buttercream frosting, raspberry swirl cupcakes and apple cupcakes.
That might explain why all five of us were glued to the tv for hours watching the Masters. It takes one good food coma to get me into golf on tv.
