EASTERIt was a nice quiet Easter Sunday. Although a little windy and cool, the rain that was predicted stayed away and the sun stayed out longer than expected. Easter baskets were opened and a very casual lunch was enjoyed. And although it is Easter it is still a Sunday and the Sunday tradition is breakfast, the Sunday news paper and the CBS News Sunday Morning. I tried something new for breakfast, cream cheese puffs. Simply, Pillsbury Crescent Rolls and Philadelphia Cream Cheese. I use the soft brick style cream cheese, but it probably would have been easier to use the cheese in the tub. I wanted to buy the Laughing Cow Cream Cheese wedges, but the store was out.
It is as simple as separating the dough, placing a dollop of cream cheese on the widest end and carefully "knotting" it up. I pulled up each side and then wrapped the long end around. I baked as directed plus one minute longer, to compensate for the filling.
And with sliced strawberries on the side and a cup of Celestial Seasonings strawberry tea.
A very simple and casual lunch. Lasagna with a simple salad, ham and sauteed veggies.
Since it is Easter and Easter comes with candy, no formal desert; the candy was the desert.
As I have mentioned before gifts are always a bit different around here. So the baskets were opened.
The baskets unwrapped.
Bunny pasta!!! I can't wait to make a fun, fresh summer pasta salad.
And some fun Nancy Drew gear.
A wallet bag and earring.
And a Nancy Drew pillow.
And since I love flip flops and earrings there are a few of those. I know not your typical Easter Basket filler but as I said presents are always a bit different around here. Of course there was a few bunny and one plush kitty.
