Easter Sunday, 2016, is now a sweet memory.
Oh, it was truly a glorious holiday.
There were beautiful church services, family members, a dear friend, precious new born babies, decorations, luscious food offerings, and on and on.
In addition to fattening fare, such as pecan and apple pies, (made by one of my sisters), and my infamous cheese braid, there were nutritious things, too.
Hummus (a Mediterranean chick pea concoction) came with carrots and celery sticks.
Ginger chicken wings are a tradition in our house.
No holiday around here is ever complete without them.
This year, for the large tossed salad, I made Rachel Ray's lemon dressing plus an Olive Garden copy cat recipe for the dressings.
Both got rave reviews.
Spiral ham took center stage, of course, in addition to Polish kielbasa with beet horseradish, an artichoke/roasted red pepper/ potato and olive salad; fresh rolls, and my daughter's delicious sweet potato casserole.
M&M Easter candies were a must, too.
Thank the risen Lord for the abundance.
Tonight I went swimming for an hour and a half to try to get rid of some of the guilt. ha!
Hope you have a great week after Easter!
Bye bye, Easter, 2016!
