Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday was as good as it could be; filled with food, family, and friends. Jan and G'ma drove out from CA and our friends, Shannon and girlfriend, Rainie came from across town.

Grandma, Jan, and Maggie made appetizers of deviled eggs and this really clever basket of antipasto skewers with an assortment of cheeses, olives, pickles, pepperoncini, salami, and snow peas.
And for everyone, as place card holders, these cute Easter baskets filled with jelly beans and homemade hand-decorated sugar cookies (each one was unique with little intricate designs.) Even big John decked out a cookie--and it looked pretty good!

Dinner...what can I say about dinner except that it was FABULOUS and absolutely DELICIOUS!! Ham, salad, bourbon baked beans, potato egg salad, and Nana's crescent rolls--all made from scratch. I just cannot find the words to describe each and every dish but I know a lot of work (and love) went to putting together the perfect Easter Sunday meal.

As if dinner wasn't enough...there was dessert. But not just any sweet course but a special birthday cake--or shall I say birthdays cake to celebrate Grandma and Jan's birthday. Boy oh boy was it moist and mouthwatering good!

Easter Sunday started out at our home with breakfast together--just John and I...pancakes, fresh fruit salad, and hot coffee, then a bike ride with from home to Lake Mead (John would ride back solo while John and Maggie lent me their truck to haul my bike and my spent body home). The day kept getting better and better in to the evening, so much so that Easter Sunday was more than I could hope for.
