How is everyone's Easter going?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Mine started out badly, i woke up feeling nauseous. I think it might have been something i ate, but gradually I am doing better. I hate to miss out on Easter. In a couple of hours I am picking up my sister for a get together.

Sadly now my spring break ends too, back to work Monday. oh well.

Hopefully you feel better by that time. It's no fun feeling sick when there's a good Easter dinner ahead of you. In a couple of hours I'll be gone for dinner myself.

Since I am one of the only ones in my immediate circle of friends who celebrates it I almost forget what a major holiday it is. The stores were packed yesterday.

And thanks, I am doing better.

Boring. Jake's eyes are glued to the tv, watching UNC and Wisc playing.

Me - Im just playing games on the puter - and then we will go to Cheeseburger in Paradise (a restaurant owned by Jimmy Buffett)

Hope you feel better Marge.

I went to a restaurant owned by Buffet once, I think it was called Margarittaville. Boy he really franchised all of that now didn't he?

I saw Margaritaville in New Orleans but I didn't bother with it - instead went for the smaller restaurants than the chains. I sure hope it is good! I could go for mexican though!

Glad to hear you're doing better.

That's the one I went to. Although I agree it's more fun to go to small places when traveling. But I wanted to be able to say i went to "Margaritaville"

I know, I had such a great time. I have a large print of The spries of St Louis that I have up and it always reminds me of it.

not one of my friends celebrate it as the actual holiday it is. I have one who does but cause of the bunnies part (she is a bunny fanatic) The rest aren't religious at all. I guess we fit the San Francisco area secular intellectuals stereotype pretty well! I do celebrate it but my sister only shows up cause of the food!

I gave dh a tiny, tiny "basket" this am, and a 6 pack of some of the best Root Beer (Thomas Kemper) as he'd given up soda for Lent. For myself I got some Jordan Almonds to have over this next week, and a couple of peanut butter eggs

We had cheese/scallion omelets for breakfast, and I'm making up snacks now (simply - just kalamata olives, diced and mixed with cream cheese, then put into celery sticks, and devilled eggs).

It's unfortunately raining too hard for us to smoke our Easter dinner as we'd planned (and I'm cooking ahead for the week), so we are using our large electric roaster to do a beef brisket, and I am going to rotisserie our pork loin roast. Nice dinner planned, am getting out the china that's pretty much it, and quiet day together

Marge, I'm glad you're starting to feel better What a major bummer, being ill on Easter!
Mine has been nice, despite the rain. We're Methodist, so I went to church with my mom at a church that she started going to a few months ago (our old church got a bit too political and right-wing for her taste). This church is awesome, and the minister used to perform on Broadway, so he is a wonderful speaker. Loved it!
The one thing I didn't do this year that I normally do is make a coconut bunny cake. Didn't have enough family around to share it with

I am Methodist too, but out here, the Methodist churches lean way left

I just got back from Benson and spending the afternoon with the kids and grandkids. The twins went crazy for the shorts and shirts that I got them and insisted upon putting them on, right away. Pictures to follow.

Feliza and Isabel got to hunt eggs, in the back yard. When they started throwing them. it was time to take away their buckets.

I have a crockpot full of beans and ham, that has been simmering all day. With a skillet of cornbread, that's tonight's dinner.

Bill had to stay home - there's a big paving job, in Casa Grande and he had to remain on call. He DID break in the new vacuum cleaner. Immediately, after Bill was finished, Buddy chucked a hairball in the middle of the family room. Great timing, Buddy.

Well, we got really bad service at the restaurant but that was quickly remedied by a bribe of free dessert - an ultra rich chocolate cake with fresh strawberries, bananas, ben and jerry's ice cream(chocolate chip and chocolate icecreams), whipped cream and chocolate sauce.

Cindy, I think you would have been in heaven with that chocolate overload!

Meh. Nothing much going on.

We actually got up early enough to try to go out to breakfast...but the restaurants were so busy it wasn't even worth it. Tried to go shopping to pick up some essentials, and all the retail places were closed. We weren't the only ones...when we went to Wal Mart there were at least 5 other cars in a line with us heading there only to find it closed. Finally hit the grocery store, since apparently that's the only thing open on Easter. We're having a decent dinner tonight, mainly because there was some good stuff on sale at the grocery, and we already had a pork tenderloin in the freezer.

I had a very nice Easter so far...got to re-home a gray, neglected Oregon kitty to Leah's (TCS: Dick'n'Leah) outside Tacoma, WA here, and that was all I wanted ....then I brought Easter brunch to Eric at work who will not be home until 1 am and missed his family's dinner, and hugged him and the new puppy. It's horrid weather here today so now I am home and warm and dry and catching up with all of you! And......here are Sasha and Saba with their catnip bunnies:

We had a great time, we got to see all the families all dressed up and out for brunch. We just had appetizers and beer.

Well, we did the crawfish boil yesterday with the family, came home and passed out!!!!

This morning, I was too tired after playing "Easter Bunny" for our son to cook our ham dinner so we finally got to eat it for supper.


It's kind of spooky here, we had to wear pants and jackets today........way down here in south Louisiana! I don't ever remember it being this cool this late in the year!

All in all we had a good day (lazy day) and now I'm getting ready to clean the kitchen.
