Easter follow up

Easter was great, beautiful morning at church with the family. Pastor Henry and Dan baptized me, many people stayed to watch the baptisms. We had 9 people at the late service all being baptized it was an incredible experience.

Then I came home and before I could start dinner I took poor Echo to the vet.

She had a bordatella shot last week and it seems like she has kennel cough symptoms now 😦 Luckly the new vet I found is amazing and wonderful, they were open Easter Sunday and only charged their regular price. The vet and staff were so sweet and attentive, and they even called the next day to see how she was doing. I’m so thankful to have found them, and Exho seems to be doing much better.

After all that I finally got to making Easter dinner! I didn’t get many photos but we had:

Spiral Ham glazed in Brown sugar and Pineapple
Mac & Cheese

Happy Easter!!

HAPPY EASTER!!!

What are your Easter plans for today?

I am going to church and getting Baptized today! For some reason I have just never done it, but today I finally am.

My family is coming to town to go to church with me and support me for the baptism, which I am so thankful for!

After church I am going to make a version of my Grandmothers traditional family Easter dinner.

I’m making:
Glazed Ham
Mac & Cheese (& a 2nd Gluten Free)
Sautéed Red Potatoes (my Grandma would usually make mashed)
Cornbread Stuffing ( & a 2nd Gluten Free)
Gravy

That’s all for this Easter. Usually for holidays I also make cornbread casserole, green bean casserole, sautéed summer squash, and candied sweet potatoes.

Does your family have an Easter Dinner? What do you eat for Easter? I see people talk about Hot Cross Buns and Easter Bread, do you make these? Are they a tradition in your family?

Here’s all the prep I did yesterday to make dinner today super easy.
