Well, for most of the afternoon
The morning and lunchtime was spent with dear friend Sally
and we went to the town South of us
to visit some of our favorite haunts.
True Treasures came home with us!
But it is Easter Saturday
and there were a lot of Easter preparations to do
The eggs to dye
With vinegar and food coloring
in coffee cups
Always, coffee cups
It was what my mother did.
And it's what I do!
Then cupcakes to make
For special children at church
I can't claim credit for the decorations
I found them on a blog . . .
But I can't remember which one!
Green tinted coconut
a smattering of jelly beans
and a cute rabbit holding another jelly bean
Which I put in cello bags
I'll hand them out at church tomorrow.
A tradition at church is breakfast on Easter morning . . .
So I'll bring these
A whole platter of egg cookies . . .
It is Easter after all
And it is breakfast
Cookies are okay for breakfast as long as they look like eggs!
And after 600 plus cookies for the fundraiser, one would assume that I would be tired
of baking cutout cookies.
But I had fun creating these -- I think they're quite clever!
And for the grown-ups?
Easy Cheese Danish
A Barefoot Contessa recipe
I'll bake them off tomorrow morning
just before we leave for the church.
I also baked the Easter dessert . . .
A lamb cake.
I'll frost it tomorrow and sprinkle with coconut.
Put currants for eyes and nose
And tie a big bow around it's neck.
Alas, no picture of the lamb . . .
Lamb's do not look good "nekkid"!
It is Sunday. It is Easter. I'm joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sunday.
