Old Fashion Easter Egg Hunt

I went with my family today to breakfast across the street at The Del Monte Cafe. After the breakfast we all loaded up and headed over to Meadow Park here in San Luis Obispo for an old fashion Easter Egg Hunt. They had popcorn and cupcakes and bbq hot dogs and face painting and balloons...and an Easter Egg Hunt..along with getting your picture taken with the Easter Bunny. The Easter Bunny scared me to death as a kid...but nobody was crying here today. Seemed like they all loved it.
John and I are having a quiet Easter here at home alone this year. After the past few weeks, I just wasn't in the mood for a big deal kind of Easter. I told John this morning that I have planned an old fashion dinner. Nothing "Martha" here this year. Not one thing. I have a Farmer John ham...it even has a little package on the side that has a brown sugar sauce to put on it. And I am doing it. Making scalloped potatoes and some asparagus. I got rolls..Oh yes I did..the kind that comes in the round blue tube. You know the ones. The Pillsbury cresent rolls. I am opening a can of mandarin oranges and dessert is strawberry shortcake. I'll make the shortcakes with Bisquick. I love Bisquick. Especially when I am in one of those "comfort me" kinda moods like I am this year. Actually, I am pretending I am in a Farmhouse in Vermont. Wood floors, bouquets of sweet peas from the garden, a small fire smoldering in the woodstove,cats sleeping curled up in wing back chairs,the smell of ham coming from the Wedgewood stove, strawberries sliced and sprinkled with sugar,shortcakes cooling on the windowsill,mandarin oranges in pretty sprigware cups....the only thing missing is.....Teddy !
Happy Easter, my friends
