I have some serious blogging to do. I’m sorry to disappear on everyone. I really intended to blog over the weekend, but just got distracted by my friends. In a good way.
As I’ve mentioned before, my circle of friends from college all get together throughout the year to celebrate “Fake Holidays.” It’s really just a chance to spend the holidays together, without anyone having to balance their family obligations, etc. And it’s a blast! Traditionally, we celebrate Fake Thanksgiving together, as well as a combined Fake Christmas/Fake New Year’s. This weekend, for the first time, we celebrated Fake Easter.
The festivities included decorating Easter eggs, filling Easter baskets with toys and goodies for everyone, and of course, an Easter feast. We made brown-sugar glazed ham, my family’s cheesy potatoes, green bean casserole, corn, and dinner rolls. Oh, and some tasty deviled eggs that, just hours before, had been beautiful Easter eggs. I had dreams of making Easter cake pops to take with me, but that definitely didn’t happen, so dessert was basic frozen cheesecake.
The food was good, even though there was nothing earth-shattering, but it was more important to have everyone together again. Without a doubt, I would call the first annual Fake Easter a success.
P.S. I’ve got some good recipes coming up, including a new ice cream, a couple of homemade pasta dishes, and some super cheesy chicken enchildas. Stay tuned!
