Our first Easter at our still relatively new to us home. We spent the weekend just chilling with the kids, enjoying the beauty of spring....the house cleaning (what is better than opening the windows and letting that fresh air in) playing catch outside (finally!) and the smells...what is it about the smell of melting snow and freshly running water. On a beautiful Sunday, we had Nana and Papa over and we celebrated Easter (with two visits from the bunny). Why two visits? Well, the rabbit had left eggs all over the house over night and then when we came home from church, Dan felt like having some fun so he 'spotted' the Easter bunny and took the kids on a quick trip around the block while I raced around the house, hiding eggs again. Lucia was piiiiiisssssed off, typical. Willis was loving the chase, again. Ah, them kids.
Anyway, on the menu:
For supper: Roast Duck, Blue Cheese Coleslaw, Wild Rice/Quinoa mix (Dan's parents brought the yum), Carrots.
The reviews: Luciawas ALLOVER THE DUCK. Willis would have nothing to do with it. I loved it and it was insanely easy to prepare (boil for 45 minutes- ducks are fatty, then roast for 30) I made the Blue Cheese coleslaw for Dan and his Dad because of the blue cheese, which I only tolerate. But it was really good and Papa loved it. The carrots were just boiled carrots. As a side note, Nana and I enjoyed Peach Bellinis and that was delicious.
For dessert: Ice cream with pecans and caramel sauce and Crème Brulée.
The reviews: I didn't let the caramel sauce turn brown enough so it was quite light...personally, I like my sucre à la crème better. But it was a tasty little treat. The crème brulée was INSANELY GOOD and I spent half the time in awe that I actually made it. I shouldn't have had Willis' though...that was way too much yum.
What did you serve for your Easter dinner??? Would love to hear what other people eat!
Have a great weekend,
