Being a little under the weather and all, which was tough with how awful the weather was yesterday to be under that, but success. I'm still not 100%, but its Easter, so I figure I will have enough sugar to kill anything negative I might be feeling.

I would say this glorious Easter morning (which it really is! The sun burned through the fog and they say it's supposed to be around 60 today!) the best/worst conversation occurred. Preface conversation: I am a catholic elementary school graduate, have had my 1st communion and am confirmed in the catholic church - but I have not been so close to the church for the past couple of years...I went through some stuff, the church went through some stuff, and I am sure one day we will go through some stuff together, but today is not it.
My mother, who has finally come home from pieland at Randall's (long story short, every holiday Randall's goes through an excessive amount of pie orders - in the thousands - and that is my mother's baby...pieland), back to the story...she comes in and is getting ready to head to church (early! Which if you grew up knowing my family, we don't do things early, we run on our own time...Marquis time...and everyone, including the church, has come to expect that from us). I asked her if it would be alright if I stayed home and helped my Dad get ready for Easter dinner (which is at 2 PM, so it's not considered dinner in my book, but that is a whole nother story)....she responds..."I would prefer that actually, I am not ready to see the church walls fall in on us this year". So there you have it, my mother thinks I am unholy and deemed a danger to the Catholic church....Happy Easter everyone! Hope you have a fabulous day!
What is your process to eating a chocolate bunny?
Whether hollow or solid, I always go for the head first....I sadly figure if I get the head out the way, the bunny won't feel the rest of the pain as I eat it....yes, I know choc bunnies are not real, but I was never allowed to have pets, so it is as real as it gets to me...
What is on your Easter menu?
we are cooking up some Boars Head honey baked ham, green beans and sweet potatoes, asparagus, red bliss potatoes, cauliflower pie (can't wait to try this, mom's creation), and bread for dinner....a lemon cake with lemon icing and blackberries and a strawberry rhubarb pie for dessert....you're jealous, I know...it's OK :)
