Post Easter Wrap-Up

Good morning, friends!

Well Easter's over.  I have to say that it was the most stressful one for me, but also a lot of fun.  This marked the first time I ever hosted a holiday and I have to say that for a first timer, I didn't do half bad.  And that's coming from me, aka The Harshest Self Critic Ever.

There are many foods I made which will go up here on the blog, but for now, here are some pictures of the day...

Truly one of my proudest moments and one which we may never see again: My brother Stephen washing wine glasses for me.  I nearly fainted.  Which would have been bad because I had onions carmelizing in a pan at the time.  And onions are good, so burning them would have been a tragic waste.  But I just haaaad to get this one for posterity.

Then he glazed the ham for me.  What a doll! And he knew I was taking his picture this time so I had to beg him to let me.  I guess he did a pretty good job - everyone raved about the ham! ;-)

And ps, can we discuss how goshdarned tall he's gotten? Every time I see him standing there I have to do a double-take.  I'm always expecting to see him standing on a box or something.  But no.  It's all him.

Speaking of tall guys, there's my uncle diving in to some potato salad before he attacks the pierogies.  Which reminds me of a funny story.  Remember when I went to all the trouble to make potato salad only to have my mom show up with a great big bowl of it? And then tell me that SHE TOLD ME she was going to make it, which she obviously didn't or else I wouldn't have made it myself? Yeah.  Good times.  I'm still laughing about that one.

There's my sister, sitting by the wall, and our cousin Lauren.  These girls grew up way too quickly.  Lauren's 20 now and Steph's 19.  We have a picture of when Steph was practically a newborn and Lauren was being held up to see her in my mom's arms.  And here they are, reminiscing about their high school teachers.  Earlier they were talking about how fun it would be to go out together once they're both 21.  WEIRD!

And there's my mom, filling up her plate! On the counter you can kinda see kielbasa and ham and something which I'm guessing is cole slaw.  I really really meant to take a picture of everything laid out, but in my haste to get everyone eating...I forgot.  I guess that's how it goes when you're the hostess!

I hope everyone had a great Easter and that the sugar shock is wearing off! That's one thing - I never did have any candy.  Does that mean I'm growing up?

I'm writing for you. I'm speaking to you.

So I would like to hear from you in return. Did that story make you laugh, or think? Does that recipe look good? Do you relate to me or totally disagree?

Let me hear what YOU think!
