In our family I am the hostess. I host Thanksgiving, Halloween, and most every other family gathering in between. While this is by choice, sometimes it’s nice to take a break. This is one of the reasons why I LOVE Easter!
On top of that, this is a holiday when the kids don’t expect any gifts, I can steal loads of Easter candy from them when they are asleep, I don’t have to decorate the house, and we are always invited to an Easter Celebration at my dear friend, and hair dresser of 20+ years’ house.
Did I mention he lives on a farm?
Not only was the farm treat enough for the kiddos, there is also a massive egg hunt on the property, lots of booze, and a spread of food and desserts that would make any fatty squeal. Last but not least, once everyone is nice and
buzzed full we play “Dysfunctional Family Bingo.” It’s quite a sight! Some of the old ladies take Bingo VERY seriously!
By the time we get the kids into the car they are wiped out, our bellies are full, and they basically crash out by the time we get home.
He makes the main dishes, but the apps and dessert are potluck. I make a killer appetizer that is my go to for any party. People inhale it, and it literally takes 2 minutes to make. I will have the recipe up on the blog tomorrow!
I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend whether you celebrate Easter or not.
Until next time.
