Easter Recap

The Holiday season is officially over (and wedding season is starting!) and I’m kinda excited about it… No more being tempted by candy in fun shapes, eating huge meals til I feel like I’m going to pop or making the usual Monday statement “That’s it — I’m doing a sugar detox!”

Our Easter this year was fairly low-key. We invited the in-laws over for Church and Lunch/Dinner and just hung out on the couch watching basketball and chatting.

Adam and I put out a few decorations… You know, whatever leftover items I could find at Target!

Easter basket from my mom!

That Hershey’s chocolate candle smells AMAZING.

Appetizers were salami, irish cheddar cheese and Skinny Crab & Artichoke Dip (We used real crab meat, jarlsberg cheese and added Old Bay).

Adam was such a big help in preparing the food – He knows what he’s doing in the kitchen! We made a roast in the crock pot with onions and carrots, mashed potatoes and fresh rolls for dinner. Adams mom brought a spring salad that had roasted pine nuts, spinach, feta cheese and grapes with a raspberry vinaigrette. It was delicious!

Adams parents ended up having to leave before dessert but it doesn’t mean we did’t enjoy what we had planned.

Angel Food Cake, Fresh Whipped Cream with Blueberries and Strawberries. Would it surprise you if you knew we ate the entire angel food cake between the two of us? Didn’t think so.

I also made some sugar cookies with jellybeans that we never ended up touching due to our Food Coma. Adam’s work scores again!
