Happy Monday

by adustyframe ~ March 24th, 2008

I trust you each had a blessed Easter.

We spent the weekend doing Easter activities and preparing for Sunday company.

James and I made resurrection rolls on Friday. Supposedly the marshmallows melt into the roll to leave it empty. Our rolls turned out empty, but the marshmallows oozed all over the baking sheet. Oh well.

We had company for dinner after church. I made all the things my Mom used to make for Easter dinner.

It felt nice to WANT to cook and share favorite recipes with a friend.

Lee called us in the afternoon and we had a chat with both Grandmas. The rest of the day was spent resting.

What did you do for Easter?

    Hey, I have a question. You’ve probably addressed this somewhere, but I haven’t been reading that long. Does your son ever get to see his dad in person? You don’t mention it, so I’m guessing he doesn’t for some reason. Are children not allowed to visit?

    No, James does not visit.

    We attended church. Our children’s chat talked about what a real Easter Egg is… not filled with candy and toys but empty..like Jesus’ tomb… very nice correlation…I think the kids got it!

    We spent the day with family..eating lots of yummy brunch foods. Very quiet mellow day!

    Quiet mellow days sound good to me;)!

    The resurrection rolls sound fun–and kind of like a recipe I learned in my homemaking class in the 8th grade, LOL!

    It sounds like y’all had a nice Easter weekend! We are celebrating today~because I (along with our baby) was sick this weekend. It feels a little odd, LOL!

    I’m sorry you were sick:(

    Have just arrived back (well, an hour and a half ago) from spending the weekend with my parents in London. I love going back but always have so many different and at times difficult emotions being in the place I grew up, visiting my old church, seeing my sisters who I dearly wish I lived closer too.But it was a good weekend and the Lord blessed us with travelling mercies (a 4 hr trip if you don’t stop) we even had some snow which was pretty to watch fall but thankfully did not settle 🙂

    I’m glad your trip went well. I must say it sound so exotic to say you spent Easter in London;)

    Lizzie, I would love to have the recipe for the rolls…..Glad you enjoyed your Easter weekend…..this should be your last Easter without Lee right???? What a joy it will be for the three of you to celebrate all of your holidays together….but then I guess everyday will be a holiday when you have each other under the same roof!! God Bless, Pam, South Bend

    Pam, are you ready for this? Thaw a loaf of frozen bread dough. Wrap the dough around marshmallows, bake.

  6. Katherine

    Oh–we used biscuits in the recipe I remember! Flatten them out, wrap the marshmallows up, then brushed with butter!!

    We went to church to catch the early “Sonrise” service at 8:30 am — everyone was freezing outside! Then we all went in for the fellowship buffet breakfast. The worship service was awesome, as always, and the praise team did “In Christ Alone”, “Oh Happy Day” (always reminds me of that scene in “The Nutty Professor”) and some others.

    We banged our Easter eggs together and put them on green salad at home, and had crock-pot beef and homemade cheesecake. My husband had to go into work as usual that night, so he napped in the afternoon….basically we all just chilled out. I think we have to do it again, at the end of April for Eastern Orthodox Easter, because it was so cold my baby didn’t get to wear her fluffy tulle sleeveless Easter dress! She had to wear her long-sleeved turtleneck and jumper (still cute, but not satiny and ruffly). Besides, I didn’t get to the Mediterranean market in time to get lamb. So…….we’ll just do it all again with our Bulgarian Orthodox bretheren. Any excuse for a celebration!

    aww too bad it was too cold for the pretty dress:).
