We had a wonderful Easter Sunday. Celebrating the wonderful gift that we were given. Our newlyweds and our parents were here to celebrate the day with us. We had an early dinner right after church, so that the kids were able to visit with our Happy Homemaker's parents too.
The weather was beautiful - warm enough to be outside without a jacket as long as you were in the sun. Our Texans sent photos of their day - Easter egg hunts, baskets, candy and family photos. They had a crab boil with our Fireman's Flame's sisters and brothers. So glad that they had a wonderful day too!
I have off from work today. I have an appointment this am, but after that I'm free to be. I've been up since 6am, just couldn't sleep. I hate to waste time sleeping on my days off. I've got jeans hanging out on the wash-line already and I am washing up the linens from yesterday now. They'll go on the line too.
The pirogi were wonderful (if I do say so myself). I made 65 of them on Saturday - potato and cheese, stored them on cookie sheets in the downstairs fridge, then boiled them off yesterday and tossed them with melted butter and sauteed onions.
I decided to make a batch of sugar cookies too. I add a pinch of salt to the sugar that I use for the topping. It gives it a really good added punch of flavor. They were supposed to have icing, but I ran out of steam, so it was just the sugar on top.
Everyone went home with leftovers, at least enough for 2 meals, plus desserts. I love to make a ton of food for the holiday for this reason. It makes the following week easier.
I'm off to get the linens out of the washer and out on the wash-line.
What are your plans for the day?
