Well, it's already mid-April, and I am a little late posting Easter stuff, I know, but I'm finally getting back to my life again.
As you may have read in my last post, my father passed away in February and it has been a very difficult time for myself and my family, however, I wish to get back to doing things that I enjoy, as I know my father would want me to.
The mild winter we had moved into a very early spring. I already had tulips blooming at the beginning of April, more than six weeks earlier than normal!
Erik and I had a very low-key Easter Sunday; it was just the two of us this year............
But that didn't mean I didn't set a lovely table for us!
"Peeps" salt and pepper shakers are always on the table for Easter! These are made by Lenox and were a gift from my mother-in-law.
For fun I made this Lemon "Peeptini" also......
For dessert, I made "Peeps Pudding"; a lemon custard pudding with whipped cream and crushed shortbread cookies on top...garnished with more bunny Peeps!
For our main course, I made a chicken cassoulet topped with cheddar buttermilk biscuits.
I called this " Marie Peeptoinette".......then she lost her head, of course!
I did manage to get some of my Easter decor from the attic as well............
My jumbo Dutch tulips are looking great as well..........they are blooming well ahead of schedule........
As are my old-fashioned bleeding hearts. I don't usually have blooms until May!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you had a blessed Easter!
