We had blueberry and lemon cupcakes for dessert.Bunnies

My wonderful hubby even brought me home a spring flower to enjoy and then plant in my garden when it is warm enough….Purple flower

Isn’t he a sweetheart ? 😉 The chickens and baby chicks are doing well and enjoyed an Easter treat, as did the dogs 🙂 Hope you got an Easter treat as well 🙂

Windy day business…

It was another beautiful, but windy day here in our area.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The wind would blow so hard at times you thought you would fall over and then it would stop for a while.

Don't know if you can see the leaves blowing in this picture, but we lost many due to the wind the last couple of days.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The dogs enjoyed time in the yard while I worked in the garden a little.

I put my little pots with seeds out to get some sun and watered them to keep them from blowing away.

The chickens were also enjoying finding things in my flower beds.

It was a good day after Easter. I think I need a nap… I guess it’s too late for that… Thanks to all my new followers I appreciate the support and comments 🙂

Resurrection…

” But when they looked up they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. “Don’t be alarmed,” he said “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen!”” Mark 16: 4-6

Today was a beautiful day with a beautiful sunset…

 

 

 

 

 

 

We spent some time in the yard today helping my Dad fix some of his stuff, playing with the dogs, and watching the chickens do what they do best… eat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

My husband enjoyed some time on the tractor…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And I enjoyed taking photos, my husband says it has become part of my arm now. I loved the bottom of this tree so I thought I would share.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you had a beautiful and blessed easter 🙂

Easter Supper and Deviled Eggs

We had quite a meal today…

It included… ham, deviled eggs, brussels sprouts with bacon, stuffing, green bean casserole, pop overs, and that in the back is sparkling apple cider 🙂

Cheddar onion pop overs

As you can see I had a pretty good plate…

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also liked our mums centerpiece.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I thought I would share my recipe for my deviled eggs and see if any of you had other ways you make them.

Ingredients: 12 egg yolks, 2 big spoon full of your favorite mayo, 4 tbsp spicy brown mustard, 4-6 tablespoons sweet relish, 2 tsp garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste, and paprika to top.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mix the egg yolks, mayo, mustard, sweet relish, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Fill it into the egg shells (I use a piping bag with a big tip as the relish usually gets stuck in the smaller ones)

The empty piping bag and tip I used and 2 that were too small

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Top with paprika and serve 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do you have any other ingredaents you use?

Happy Easter!

The Lord is risen… blessed be the day 🙂 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HAPPY EASTER!

Easter Preperation… including chickens, eggs, therapy dog work, and at the center Jesus

The day before Easter… over 2,000 years ago a dark day, Jesus was thought to be dead, today most people go on as usual. Today Baxter and I will be doing some more therapy dog work. Yesterday we went to a nursing home to visit people for the holiday and today is his therapy dog day at the library.

This week we started getting our first speckled eggs from the chickens. All the new girls are laying now so we are getting lots of eggs 🙂 Due to this, the request from the family for Easter is lots of deviled eggs (my family loves them).

This week I also tried a new Easter treat to share with the people I work with (my husband and Dad got one too)… edible Birds Nests 🙂

I was told they are yummy and delicious as I gave them all away and forgot to try one myself.

Recipe:

They are easy to make just melt one bag of peanut butter chips (or white chocolate, or whatever you like, or want the nests the color of). I used peanut butter as I wanted that color and taste.

Melt them in a pan, over medium/low heat, stir it the whole time as it will melt quickly. When it is melted stir gently in one can or 1/2 a bag of chinese noodles till coated.

Then I took a muffin tin, sprayed it generously with cooking spray (spray it a lot as these will stick) and then used it to form the baskets to set up. It takes about 15-20 minute to set (if you want to set them faster put it in the fridge for 10 minutes).

Then use a butter knife to pop each nest out of the tin (be careful to pop each side first before popping the whole nest out).

Then I let them set for a minute and then added in malt ball eggs I found at the local store (you could also use jelly beans or other types of candy that would represent the eggs). I liked the malt balls (especially the blue ones) as they look just like little eggs. Then you can keep them at room temperature in an air tight container or I think they would freeze well.

This whole process took me under 30 minutes and my coworkers LOVED them. I also think you could use them as place setting just add a little slip of paper with the person’s name behind the eggs.

I also already started the Easter Baskets for fun. The dog’s is done…

Yes, they are spoiled...

 

When Baxter and I get home I hope to work in the garden and get started on supper for tomorrow and begin my Easter sugar cookies (more on these later). I hope you have a beautiful and blessed Saturday.

 

 

J is for Jelly bean and Jesus

I got this e-mail earlier today and 

I thought I would share…

HAPPY EASTER!

May you be blessed this Easter Season as we

celebrate His Resurrection and our new life in Him.

 I hope you have a blessed weekend 🙂
