I was actually quite busy in the kitchen over the last week. One night last week, we had Venison Guisado for dinner, served on tortillas. It’s taco flavored meat with tomatoes and onions cooked with it. I made it in the slow cooker for the first time, and it came out great.
I was tired one might last week and didn’t feel like cooking what was on the menu. So I quickly made breakfast for supper. Eggs, turkey bacon, toast, and orange juice. The family didn’t mind that I cooked breakfast for dinner. They like it.
We usually do a big dinner for Easter with guests. This Easter, though, with my mother in the hospital, I didn’t invite anyone over. We quickly ate our meal then went to the hospital.
I put some Easter candy out as the centerpiece of our dinner table. The kids started eating it before I could take a picture. And before dinner! lol My daughter said I served the best appetizers anywhere. Better than any restaurant. lol
Dinner was a simple affair. Ham, mashed potatoes, asparagus, corn, and Resurrection rolls. I put a chocolate bunny on the plates of my three youngest kids. My daughter surprised me and put some chocolate candy on my plate! So sweet!
Did you see those Resurrection rolls? Those things are seriously dangerous! They are so good it is hard to stop eating them! They are a little tricky to make, but they are worth it! You dip a marshmallow in melted butter, then in cinnamon sugar, then seal it inside a crescent roll. So good!
I lightly cooked the fresh asparagus and it came out perfect.
My dinner plate. And yes, I had a second Resurrection roll! It’s a good thing I only make them once a year on Easter! lol
My son brought an apple pie to contribute to dinner. We also had Strawberry Shortcake. That I didn’t get a picture of! I was to busy eating it! lol
I have decided to make Strawberry Shortcake our official Easter dinner dessert. It’s perfect after a big meal, and it just says spring.
