The Saturday Between



Just popping in on Saturday afternoon. We spent the day on the boat with Tim's sister and brother-in-law, and brought Little Miss A along, too. Now we're home and I'm starting to think about Easter dinner tomorrow. Soup's in the crockpot for this evening. I prepared the table center piece yesterday with flowers from around the yard. Can you believe that bluebells are in bloom already?
 

Yesterday the house filled with the scent of citrus flavored yeast dough. Paska is a traditional Easter bread from my childhood. It was delicious! I used Judy's recipe from the Mennonite Girls Can Cook blog.

Time to head back into the kitchen. Wishing you all a most blessed Easter.

  12. Love the centerpiece - I can't fill that many pieces but we have some from the garden - it is wonderful to have flowers again - and sunshine - isn't the sunshine great we've been having lately? We are so lucky to live in this area. Back to the kitchen for me too.

  16. Lorrie, I hope your family had a lovely Easter! Your centerpiece is so pretty as is your vase of tulips on Easter Day's post.

    Somehow, I didn't realize that Pass to the Left was your blog too. When I went to it I saw that I already am a follower there, maybe from the days when I had my old blog. I added it to my new blog so I won't miss any more. Yummy recipes!
