Good morning and Happy Easter!!
When I think of Easter I always think of my kiddos, getting up early, dressing in their Sunday Best then spending the day with family. Searching for eggs and having a relaxing sort of day.
Both of my kiddos are teenagers and are not into decorating eggs, searching for them or anything similar but what they do love to do is EAT! Yes! They sure can consume huge quantities of food, sometimes in one sitting, at times throughout the day. They sure do know how to flatter me, they give me tons of compliments on my cooking.."Mom, you bake the best bread...hint hint hint...Mom, your chicken taco soup is super, not many kids believe me when I tell them about your cooking..Mom do you think that you could whip up Mexican food tonight? (yours is truly the best I have ever eaten) All while saying..you look so lovely today..your such a good mommy..." uuuuhhhhhuuuhhhh they know just what to say to get me feeling soft and gushy and ready to bake/cook whatever their little hearts desire.
So after a busy and hectic week, I stopped at the grocery store last night after work..on a SatuRday..mind you...busiest day of the week to buy all of the goodies that I would need for a cherry vanilla pudding desert and pasta salad. I spent another 2 hours in the kitchen cooking and washing dishes. I had a thought, I guess I really do enjoy the cooking process, since I like to create...it was a bit like art. I feel this way in my craft studio..always wanting to create and then share my goodies with others...it's like giving others a piece of your heart.... Hmm...never thought of it that way. While I hope that I can take a little break for today I know that new bread recipes are mulling around in my head...tomorrow is another day.
So..may your Easter be wonderful and fantastic surrounded by your loved ones and special friends..oh! don't forget delicious yummy food!
