Easter Sunday/04/21/2019

The sky before the sunset. Picture taken by my husband JLN on his phone.  Pretty interesting sky!

Cooking with my family and enjoying this beautiful day!

I start by setting the table. I need a spring theme. So I add a new set of kitchen pastel towels for color.  I also use them for napkins, giving the scene a picnic feel.

The menu: Appetizers, Deviled eggs, Shrimp on ice with cocktail sauce, Celery with Brie.

Deviled eggs. Garnish with 1 green pea, or 2 green onions, or dash of Paprika, all of the above.

The main course: Baked ham with gravy, Green beans, mashed potatoes, Honey glazed carrots, and Buttermilk biscuits with Raspberry seedless jam.

Dessert: Rhubarb pie and Vanilla ice cream, Chocolate marshmallow eggs with Tea or Coffee.

Deviled Eggs

Ingredients:

. 6 eggs hard boiled, . 1/4 cup mayonnaise, . 1 teaspoon of white wine vinegar, . 1 teaspoon of yellow mustard, .1/8 teaspoon of salt, . Freshly ground black pepper, Dash of paprika, for garnish.

Directions:

Remove egg shells under cool running water. Gently dry the eggs with paper towels. Slice the eggs lengthwise. Place egg yokes in a medium bowl. Place the egg whites on a serving platter large enough to accommodate 12 half eggs. Mash the yolks using a fork. Add mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper, and mix well. Spoon into the egg whites. Garnish with a dash of Paprika and serve. For Spring I added a green pea, two green onions for more color.

Recipe:

Rhubarb Tart

Pastry for single-crust 9-inch pie,. 4 cups sliced fresh rhubarb(1/2-inch pieces),. 1 cup of sugar,. 1/4 cup all-purpose flour,. 2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces,. 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats

Preheat oven to 450F. Line 9-inch pie plate with pastry. Combine rhubarb, sugar and flour in medium bowl; place in prepared crust. Top with butter; sprinkle with oats. Bake for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350F. Bake 40 minutes or until filling is bubbly. Serve with Vanilla Bean ice cream.

All the cooking, all the eating, all the laughing left this Septuagenarian a little tired. My husband and I took a drive to our favorite park to watch the sunset, but we were too early. We sat on a bench and observed the sky for about an half hour, but the sunset wasn’t happening. We got this picture of the sky looking very pretty.

I am going to make an update on the previous post, it has been so long that I had forgotten the format. Hope to hear about your holiday, please share by leaving a comment.

  1. I have searched for this blog for ages! I used to follow it, but then it disappeared! I still follow a blog you told me about, in England, Frugal Fashion Shopper.
    Your Easter meal is just lovely! That photo could be a painting…
    All is well? So glad to be back in touch. Margaret
