We had a glorious day for our Easter celebration. The day was sunny and fairly warm. The only sad part of the weekend was that my parents didn't make the trip from NC as dad had the flu. I was disappointed as I haven't seen them since December.
We still had 12 for dinner and had a great day of good food and drinks! We baked a ham, made 2 roasts on the smoker, roasted fingerling potatoes and grilled asparagus and had a huge salad. YUM!
Since my youngest son's birthday fell on Easter this year we had birthday cake for dessert. He requested a chocolate chip bundt cake which is a cake I have been making for years. Made the cake Friday...when I took it out of the pan the whole top half stayed in the pan! I scraped it out and hoped that the glaze would cover the cracks...but it looked horrible! My son still ate the cake - it tasted delicious but wasn't presentable to be served on Easter. So Saturday we bought an Oreo ice cream cake...which was a hit.
I got teaes a lot on Sunday because every time someone commented about something I made I said I got it at Costco....the spiral cut ham, the fingerling potatoes, the gorgeous fresh asparagus...all from Costco. Not precooked mind you...I did do all the cooking myself.
Even the gorgeous tulips I used for a centerpiece...from Costco. And it was funny because I bought red tulips with frilly yellow edges....my son and daughter-in-law brought me a pot of mums in the same color - red with bright yellow centers...they matched perfectly!
