And so begins the busiest month of my life. Ill get back to you on that one!
As I mentioned earlier, the night before Easter was stormy! We were up many hours consoling our doggies through the lightning and thunder in the middle of the night! But we still somehow managed to get early for an eight o clock Easter Service (early for us, we usually go the the 11:30 church service 🙂
Easter Morning began with a delicious carrot-cake overnight oat parfait, topped with crumblies from a carrot cake muffin (which I will share with you soon I promise!!). It was put together relatively quickly too, since nothing had to be cooked!
After a glorious service, (Easter Sunday is my favorite!) my family and I walked over to the coffee shop by my church for some rainy day cappuccinos
Someday I will learn how to do this…
Since we had celebrated Easter with our family the day before, we went home for a relatively low-key Sunday afternoon. We walked the doggies under the now-sunny sky, had a quick and random lunch that I didn’t picture, and then I set about making these babies…
My craving for Easter candy was now satisfied:)
Even though we hadn’t planned anything special for dinner, my brother was over and since we hadn’t had a real “Easter Brunch” either, I decided that Brunch for Dinner it was!!
Pretty Easter table 🙂
Tofu scramble with fresh, local asparagus (Gosh I love living in the central valley!!), Yukon Gold potatoes roasted with garlic, salt and pepper, and an accidentally pink fruit salad with pineapple, mandarins, banana, raspberries, shredded coconut, and a bit of soy yogurt flavored with lemon and coconut extracts and stevia. It was soo good:)
And for dessert, the last of my Sunny Lemon Cheesecake!
Other eats this week have included:
The best OIAJ ever (wow that jar was gone fast! Oops 😉 ). Oats with vanilla, stevia, flax, instant espresso and maca powder plus an apple in a vanilla espresso almond butter jar…Heaven:)
Lots of cookie dough dip:)
A gigantic bowl of cookie dough dip topped with yogurt and cereal, of which my whole family followed suit and we called it dinner haha! Plus veggies later 😉
Salad with lentils and sweet potato
Veggie sushi snack 🙂 A “go green” roll with long beans, green apple, rice and avocado in a sweet mustardy sauce
And a snack of yogurt and frozen blueberries and a pear-agar agar experiment hehe:) Topped with cereal, but then you couldn’t see the fun part!!
How was your Easter?
