Easter 2012

Easter was wonderful, but Ashley and Eric decided not to come to Missouri.  It It was hard to accept their decision, and I tried many times to change their collective mind, but in the end, they stayed in Indiana.

So our Easter was spent going to Marceline.  Mom got pasta from a shop in town, made a salad and I brought the stuff for Peeps S'mores and made a lemon dessert.  Both were inspired by pins on Pinterest!   

We put the S'mores in the oven, the chocolate softened and the peeps melted a bit and the combination was wonderful!

I made a simple two ingredient lemon bar by combining a can of lemon pie filling with a box of angel food cake mix.  Pour it into an ungreased 9 by 13 pan, bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.  Take it from the oven, cool it a bit and dust it with powdered sugar.  I served it with cool whip and lemon wafers.

We had a Easter Egg hunt with Kassie and Tristan.  Tammi hid the eggs and the kids found them.  Tammi can hide eggs!  Some of the eggs had chocolate, some candy, and some $5 and one had a McDonald's gift card!

Bob and I left for Wien after the Egg Hunt.  We met up with Gary and Joy.  Joy prepared a wonderful dinner of meatloaf, ham, hash brown casserole, corn, green bean casserole, rolls, with homemade chocolate pie for dessert!  Gary had the pleasure of cutting into the pie.  He made the filling.  The meringue was perfect!

All of us watched fabulous photos of Gary and Joy's trip to India.  My favorites were the Taj Mahal and the FOOD!  I could be quite happy with Indian food.

Bob and I made it home late but we certainly enjoyed our day.  Of course we spent the time driving home talking to Ashley and hearing about her Easter.  I think she had a great one, even if she wasn't home!

  1. Looks like a wonderful Easter!

    Have you checked out the Pinstrosity blog? It's a crack-up, with postings of Pinterest "disasters". Of course, you probably don't have any disasters, but for some of us who are culinary challenged...well....anyway. :)

  2. Oh boy. That's a tough one. It sounds like you kept busy...but still.

    Sending a hug your way.
