Happy Easter again!
We had a pretty good Easter day today. Mom was doing dinner. So I set my alarm to get up at two and called her to ask if I could help her and what time she wanted me to come over. She said nothing I could do and between six and six thirty. I got there about six twenty and was the first one there (I was surprised my brother didn't beat me there). Cathy and Jim got there about half an hour later, and David fifteen minutes after them. Mom made ham (salty ham, none of that sweet stuff, ick!), au gratin potatoes, asparagus, green beens, potato cake (basically, potato chunks with bacon cooked in a cake pan and turned upside down onto a plate), and fresh bread. It was delicious. For desert we had apple dumplings with your choice of vanilla bean ice cream or vanilla sauce or strawberry ruhbarb puree (??? she tried to make pie filling, but it wouldn't gel enough to be pie filling, and looked like she pureed it) over ice cream. I had both. Everything was delicious. And David's girlfriend, Shannon, sent flowers for Cathy, Mom, I, and my cousin Beth. They're Gerber Daisies. (Cathy was thrilled with the red one, mom and Beth got yellow, and I got white. Thank God Shannon remembered I hate yellow, lol.) It is gorgeous. I came home with some leftover ham and bread, and the pasta salad we got from Bridgetown Finer Meats. Mom didn't like it nearly as much as I did. I also had a few chocolates as mom had a whole assortment. I tried to resist, but I couldn't help myself. So I ate lots of green things for dinner. I think that cancels the extra calories out, lol. I hope everyone else had a wonderful day!!!
