Happy Peep Day!

Happy Easter!  We were up pretty early thanks to Pixie playing outside the door.  She kept banging on the door… grrrr…  So, it was off to bagels!

And some coffee:

No grounds, either!  Woo Hoo!  We had a nice relaxing breakfast and then some grocery shopping.  The guy bagging our groceries had a lot of comments on what we were buying.  He saw my medjool dates and then was mumbling about all the great stuff we were buying like strawberries and brussel sprouts.  I think his comment was “This is where it’s at!”.  I wonder if he would have said anything if the cart was full of junk food….

I had to keep checking in with work today.  Not much to do, but some.  Since clinics are closed, it is only PICU work, since hospitals don’t close for any holiday.  I had a quick protein shake, and then it was off to my sister’s house for Easter dinner!

We had a nice spread:

I made the fruit bowl pretty:

My favorite mints arrived via my Mom.  We called these great grandma’s mints, because she always had them.  I think the real name is french creams:

My plate:

Plus seconds on broccoli and some fruit.  After eating, we took the puppies out for a walk (okay, 1 puppy and 1 older dog)

Honey went into the water for a little fetch:

My BIL is the manager for the tree nursery and part of what the nursery does is to grow the flowers for the DEC owned state campgrounds.  Here are some Norway spruce seedlings:

The greenhouses have seedlings!

Sigh…. I love flowers….

It was time for dessert when we got back!  Lots to choose from:

Jelly bean cake, which actually had jelly beans baked in it,  kind of weird.

My sister’s birthday choice.  This was good!

And a selection of little pastries.

My plate:

Plus another eclair piece.  These were good.

After this – it was bonfire time:

Because there were some of these in the house:

Peep roasting time!  Peep brulee anyone?

Past the point of no return here:

Now we all smell like campfire!  I did not have any roasted peeps, although I kind of wanted one.

Good times.

I need to keep checking in with work tonight for a while longer and eating a little ham snack for dinner.

I hope you all had a wonderful day!

    Looks like a lovely time was had by all…except for the PEEPS! 🙂

    Great food and great company, what more could ask for?

    I love flowers too and took some nice pics today when I went for a walk. I posted them on my blog if you want to check them out.

    Have a great night!

    I love your blog. Random question…. Do you always keep Pixie out of your bedroom when you sleep? My cat wakes me up about 4-5 times each night. I need a new plan.

      Yes – my husband is allergic, so that is one room she can’t come in. I wish she could, though!

    One of my biggest pet peeves is grocery store clerks who feel the need to comment on what I am buying. I dunno….maybe I am too sensitive because of my weight and I feel like they are judging me.

    Roasted peeps….never would have thought to do that! Fun!

    Roasted Peeps, now I am going to have to try that! I always put them in the microwave and blow them up until they are nice and soft.

    You just made me remember, I haven’t had my usually birthday cake this year, angel food cake with strawberries and homemade whip cream.

    Were the peeps en flambe tasty?

    1. Lori Post author

      I didn’t try any of the peeps, although I did want one. The girls ate (or incinerated) them all.

    Oh, yum! Looks like your day was tasty, too! And peep brulee, too cool! I’m yet another person who has *never* thought of doing that. (No one in our family likes Peeps, although my kids like marshmallows and and had most eggs filled with the springtime ones.)
