It has been an "eggceptional" Easter Sunday here in our little Texas home!
I was busy in the kitchen this morning preparing the food for our lovely Easter lunch:
Grilled Hot Dogs
Chicken Salad on English Muffins
Tuxedo Coconut Chippers
Mom and my sister, Hannah (aka Mrs. Fleming this time next week!)
My lovely sister contributed a delicious fruit salad, spinach salad, and some KILLER Nutella cookies.
My in-laws, Gary & Toni
Love them :)
Brent and his mom
This is literally 1/4 of the candy that we collected from our Easter baskets.
I just can't be trusted with such things.
This is the hubs Easter
basket bowl that I surprised him with this morning. Easter baskets are like Christmas stockings in our house...filled with all of the food-items that you always want to buy at the grocery store but never do :)
After fixing him a yummy Easter breakfast, he began his annual Easter egg hunt.
I've been hiding Easter eggs that I fill with sweet messages for him to find around the house for 5 years now. It's one of my favorite traditions :)
He's an eeegggcellent Easter egg hunter and found the 12 eggs that I hid for him in about 2 minutes flat.
Yes, I realize that we are like children. Yes, we pay our bills and vote.
I decided that three of the chocolate bunnies that I put in his Easter bowl looked like our little family, Nova included :)
My easter basket from my Momma!
Parsnip Pete surrounded by chocolate. Pretty accurate considering my food preferences.
My eats: chicken salad sandwich, potatoes, and fruit. So yum.
For dessert, I had one of my Tuxedo Coconut Chippers (recipe to come!), one of Hannah's AMAZING Nutella cookies, and a few peanut M&Ms (my fav candy of all time).
My cookies were good but Hannah's cookies WAY better.
(I'm working on getting her permission to post her recipe. PA-LEASE!)
They made me do my "this is so good I must shake my booty" dance at the table.
No shame here peeps.
Backing up a bit, here is breakfast - A delicious bowl of Heart to Heart Honey Toasted Oat (mixed with the last of our Three Sister's Honey Oaties).
I love how Kashi cereals stay super crunchy even after being doused in milk. I woke up this morning and all I wanted was a big bowl of crunchy cereal with cold milk, so this fit the bill.
I scarfed this bowl before taking Nova on a long Easter morning walk.
It is 6:30 PM and I am still full from lunch! I was thinking about going to the gym this evening, but a relaxing night at home and snacking on leftovers sounds much better.
How was your Easter? Did you receive copious amount of chocolate?
I see some Easter candy baked goods in my future :)
Happy Easter to you and your family!
HE IS RISEN!
