This weekend flew by way too fast. No, wayyyyyyyy too fast.
We had two Easter celebrations: Saturday with Dana’s family and Sunday with my family. We ate very well all weekend enjoyed so much great company and lots of laughs.
I brought this fabulous pear salad that turned out just as good this time as it did last time I made it.
We had ham, cheesy vegetables, roasted potatoes…
And refreshing key lime pie. Everything was excellent!
Then we cozied ourselves on the couch and all hung out together as it rained outside.
Easter celebration #1 = success.
On Sunday we headed to church with my family. I love Easter service. It is so bright and uplifting!
Then we headed back to mom and dad’s for Easter goodies….
And another absolutely amazing meal: ham, asparagus with cheese, cheesy potatoes, deviled eggs, pickles, olives, and fruit salad.
And for dessert I made homemade lemon bars with ZERO refined sugar (minus the frozen yogurt alongside the bar).
I made the crust from this recipe: crust
The gooey lemon bar part from this recipe: bar
They turned out so delicious! I didn’t miss the white sugar AT ALL!
We spent quite a bit of time outside yesterday because it was in the 70’s! It felt amazing to have the sun on my skin. Yay for spring!
Easter celebration #2 = success.
It was quite the weekend. I slept for a solid 10 hours last night. All of that eating and sitting around sure does wear a girl out. 😉 I hope you all had a great weekend full of relaxation, celebration, and family and friends.
