Happy Easter Monday (to those who celebrated yesterday)! Did you guys fill your bellies with delicious food too?
After Church with my husband, we went to his parents’ house for brunch. His mother and cousin (who is a chef) prepared at least 6 different kinds of eggs – which I was forced to try all of since I didn’t partake in the Polish meat-eating. I am egg-ed out right now.
I spent Saturday baking, including making these Cherry Almond Scones to take to brunch.
[based on this recipe, minus the chocolate chips]
I ended up with 18 from my batch, so I may have flattened the dough too much – made them lower in calories (per scone).
For dinner at my parents’ house, I made a few treats: homemade hummus (appetizer), bird’s nest macaroons:
And an Easter version of this crazy addicting popcorn:
(recycled photo) with crushed pretzel chips, Rasinettes, and spring inspired sprinkles, based on this recipe. I ate so much that my stomach hurts to think about it.
Between the appetizers, potatoes, asparagus tart & carrots, I didn’t even miss an entree for dinner last night – the only negative is no leftovers for lunch today!
Breaking my sugar fast also included plenty of Robin’s Eggs – my favorite, Coconut M&Ms (new and delicious), my aunt’s famous sugar cookies, and a bite or two of carrot cake.
Best thing you made for the holiday weekend?
