     This was my first year hosting Easter dinner for my husband's family. We had already eaten the brunch type foods commonly eaten during Easter celebrations at my mom and dad's house earlier that morning so we wanted something a little different for dinner. Here is what we ate:

Cheeseburgers with... 

Homemade Macaroni and Cheese

I will be making this for holidays from now on, but only for holidays! It was so good, but so not on a diet plan! I will post the recipe some time soon.

Spinach salad with strawberries and toasted almonds covered in Lemon Poppy Seed Vinaigrette

Oreo Bundt Cake

Again,  not a low-cal cake at all but so delicious! I will post this recipe soon too!

Easter Egg Hunt Cookies

Chocolate Peanut Butter Treats

I followed the recipe above almost exact, except I had Reese's Puffs cereal so I used that instead of Peanut Butter Captain Crunch.

I ate so much I nearly burst! We had a fun day with family and really good food! 

And the best Easter present Abby got (and Lucy will use in the future too)...

A Tupperware Kids Baking Set!!! 


  1. Looks like a wonderful dinner! Homemade mac n' cheese is one of my all-time favorites! Your salad looks fantastic, as does the bundt cake -- looking forward to the recipe!

  6. I'm so glad I got to have leftovers. I loved it all! And we have to have the mac n cheese again. 4th of July sounds good to me.
