Hi! I realize it’s now well past Easter, but I thought I would post a little recap of the festivities and also share a quick and easy idea for a low carb dessert. Spoiler alert – it’s this Lemon Cheesecake-type dish:
I went home to my parents house for the weekend (it was sort of a long weekend because I only worked a few hours on Friday), and it was a lovely, lovely evening, which looked something like this….
How stinking beautiful is that? So pretty 🙂
Friday evening was spent relaxing, cuddling with my three favorite puppies in the world, and catching my dad up on the latest Game of Thrones Episodes. He enjoyed the Purple Wedding so much that we had to watch that last ten minutes three times so that he could really appreciate the death of a certain someone…. (which, if you don’t watch GoT, you’re probably thinking that sounds kind of morbid and cruel, but trust me, this guy deserved it).
Then, Saturday morning I prepared an Easter appetizer for the next day. As deviled eggs are one of my favorite appetizers, they were of course, on the menu, but this year I made them extra Easter-y by dying the whites before filling them. Family members were appropriately impressed.
After the eggs, I made my fun, easy, Low Carb Dessert, which was a Lemony Cheesecake type thing. I say “cheesecake type thing” because it wasn’t thick and rich like a cheesecake, but it was made with cream cheese, so it had sort of a similar taste, but it was a lot lighter, which honestly suits me just fine. I like eating dessert and not feeling a bit queasy/bogged down, so this was perfect.
This was really nice and light, but still a good way to indulge in something sweet after a delicious Easter meal 🙂
And then Saturday night, I went out with these fine friends…
Easter Sunday followed the typical schedule of church, followed by basket hunting – yes, I still make my mom hide an Easter basket for me. I happen to be a basket hunting champion. I
don’t want to brag or anything am so good at basket hunting that I found my own basket and Jenn’s basket in just 15 minutes. I basically have a PhD in basket hunting 😛
It was so nice out on Sunday that I was able to bask in all my basket hunting glory out on the back porch for an hour or two before heading to my Aunt’s for Easter dinner.
So there you have it, a great Easter weekend. I know it’s been a while, but
what did you guys do for Easter? Did you try any new and exciting recipes? Does anyone else still make their parents hide a basket for them? Or is that just me?
