Better Late Than Never!
My inner child went ballistic dyeing Easter eggs this week. Easter sort of snuck up on me so I didn’t have a chance to go glitter wild until the other day.
In other news: glitter is permanently encrusted into the tile floor.
My friend’s daughter gave this to me. ↑ ↑ It’s small– probably for a child– but who the heck cares when it’s this cute?!
How was your Easter by the way? Mine was quiet and relaxed at my parents’ house, but nothing short of fabulous. On the menu: walnut crusted chicken with homemade honey mustard, ham, wild rice, fruit salad heavy on the mango ♥, roasted veggies, green beans & carrots, honey butter rolls, and cheddar chive deviled eggs. If deviled eggs are your thing, try adding cheddar & chives to the mix. You’ll need the yolks from 6 eggs, then mix in 1/3 cup mayonnaise, 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, dash of white vinegar, Dijon mustard to taste (usually only 1 teaspoon for me), chives, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Sometimes I do half mayo and half greek yogurt– so 2-3 Tablespoons each.
With the leftover Easter ham, I made another easy make-ahead breakfast casserole. I left out the sausage and spinach, but added bacon, the diced ham, and goat cheese on top. This is my favorite dish to make each week because it uses up leftover meats and veggies– I’ve done it with leftover cooked ground turkey, kale, and cooked + diced sweet potato too. It’s easy! And you can prep it all the night before.
It was also Jude’s 8th birthday this week!
Coming up: a recipe out of Shelly’s new cookbook and spring CUPCAKES! What are you up to this weekend? We’re celebrating my friend’s birthday tonight then heading to Maryland for Kevin’s bike race tomorrow.
Make it a memorable weekend! xoxo
