Yesterday was Easter and the weather was glorious – warm and sunny and not at all like Easter in New England. For the first time in my life I served a sit down dinner for 12 outside. We set up tables and chairs in the driveway (the ground is pretty soft right now) and with some extra touches (like rugs from our Civil War trailer) I made it look very special.
Most of the family and some of our friends were able to join us for ham, turkey, parmesan mashed potatoes, asparagus, mashed carrots and turnip, and corn muffins. Everything was delicious and the company was great. We sat and talked and laughed and ate for most of the afternoon.
Our dessert included coconut cake and iced sugar cookies and lemon squares.
All very spring-like on a lovely summery afternoon.
