Little Bits of Easter

I had two Easters – one each with mine and Hubby’s sides of the family.

Since I didn’t photograph everything, I have some bits and pieces to share.

If you feel sorry for me, and are so inclined, feel free to send me donations to get a non-Christmas themed tablecloth. Ha, ha.


(how embarrassing)

I’m not really a ham fan, so I made Swedish Meatballs.

Veggies, rolls, and the Christmas tablecloth. I didn’t catch Hubby before he put it on the table. I don’t know if he knew it was a Christmas cloth, but I didn’t have the heart to point it out.

Inexpensive, simple, easy. Mason jars hold the silverware, and everything else is compostable. And… that tablecloth again…. eeesh.

These were some antipasto skewers that we had for appetizers at my Dad’s place. They were out of this world!

To make (from what I can tell + edited as per my Dad’s instructions):

  1. Cook refrigerated tricolor tortellini according to package directions, drain and rinse with cold water. Marinate totellini in your favorite Italian Style salad dressing for at least 3-4 hours, or overnight if you wish.
  2. Arrange cold, marinated tortellini, your choice of salami, pepperoni, olives, cheese and grape tomatoes. (not pictured)
  3. Drizzle with your favorite Italian Style salad dressing.
  4. Serve and enjoy the praise for making this delectable snack.

(Dad, if you read this, let me know if I got it right.)

Happy Easter, and Happy Springtime!


FSFM adventure

Since none of us had been there before, and we were feeling a little ‘Saturday Silliness’… Hubby, myself and the Nugget dressed up in hawaiian shirts and hats, and went to the Fulton Street Farmer’s Market, and pretended to be tourists. I took photos, Hubby scouted the jerky and cheese, and the Nugget became the master at acquiring free samples.  We picked up a mango, some local honey, some flavored honey sticks, some handmade caramel, and some cheese.  A good time was had by all!
