We had quite a lovely Easter this year minus the clouds and rain (which never happens in California, but never the less had to happen on the one day that is "supposed" to be bright and sunny). Anyway, besides the weather, we had a beautiful Easter day full of the best F words there are - friends, family, food, flowers and fellowship.
We started the morning off at church and then the rest of the day revolved mainly around eating! We had deviled eggs, of course, for apps and grapefruit margatinis made by Amber that were absolutely to die for, followed by a huge meal to feed all 14 of our guests.
Easter dinner consisted of honey orange glazed ham, truffle mac 'n cheese, scalloped potatoes made by my husband and roasted spring vegetables (including brussel sprouts, carrots, yellow squash, butternut squash, zucchini, red onion and dates, all diced on the diagonal into bite size pieces, tossed in olive oil, balsamic, honey, sea salt and cracked pepper, roasted at 400 until crispy and then topped with freshly crumbled goat cheese) it was amazing.
Lastly, we finished our meal off with Easter themed cupcakes and lemon curd french macaroons from Half Baked Co. accompanied by homemade strawberry shortcake and banana pudding in mini trifle dishes. I would say they all went over very well with our crowd :)
Hope all y'all had a Happy Easter!
