Clean up

I know a holiday is over when my china is stacked up on the table waiting to go back into the china cabinet. When I see it sitting there it brings back all the wonderful memories from the day before. I absolutely love holidays!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Ours was filled with chocolate, candies, great food, wine and an absurd amount of stickers :) But just like China, stickers don't stay out forever. Eventually I pick them up off the ground and peel them off the windows. They signify a happy time. And I don't mind cleaning them up. I know that my kids won't be into stickers forever and that this is a special time in both theirs and my life.

As a side note: The deviled eggs should be paired with salmon- otherwise limit the amount tarragon, it can be a bit overpowering. But the other food was awesome! The soup is so delicious! And the salad is to die for! Seriously, that's my new favorite salad ever! The roasted potatoes and artichokes were really yummy. And I did use the Pillsbury bread stick dough for the rolls. I rolled Parmesan and thyme into the dough as I was rolling them into rolls. I think my brother in law ate 6 of those- and I can't blame him, they were pretty darn great if I do say so myself :) We all could barely manage a bite of the berry napoleon because we were all so full when it was time for desert. Now off to plan the next big adventure!


  1. Oh, I so want to know of the salad you had and that recipe if you'll share it!
    Love your china & the memories family gatherings bring. HAPPY SPRING!!

  2. Of course! You have to try the soup too- it's amazing and doesn't have any cream! Yet it's so creamy- I used wolfgang pucks vegetable stock- otherwise it's just like the recipe. And all recipes were posted in an earlier post titled "Easter Brainstorming". I believe I posted it in March.

  3. I can't wait to have kids for Easter! How fun :)
