With Easter coming up soon, it is time to start menu planning. Do you have a set menu each year, or do you change it up? We have ham each year, but the sides are pretty much up for grabs. And the dessert always changes. Last year I made this French Silk Pie. I am craving a chocolate cake recently, but that doesn’t really seem fitting for Easter. My husband’s parents are going to be here this year, but I haven’t figured out anything but the ham yet. Guess I better gone on that!
Who watched the Wisconsin vs Kentucky basketball game on Saturday night? Such a tough loss for the Badgers. They played so well, and then lost by 1 point in the final seconds of the game. Only the 3rd time in school history that they have made it this far, so no matter what, it was a great season! I just wish it could have ended differently. My 8 year old had 2 more football games this weekend. It was a tough 2 games as well! The first game was a tie, and the 2nd game they lost by just 1 touchdown. So much stress for a weekend!
I think the whole country is ready for spring. We are actually having spring here, but I am still ready for warmer temps. To be able to go outside without a jacket one would be nice. I can’t wait to be able to open up the windows and let some fresh air in. We are in for a nice weekend here, so I am excited to maybe get outside and enjoy the weather. One thing I am becoming a little obsessed with this spring is citrus. If you know me, you know this is not normal, but I am loving it!
Valentine’s Day is all about indulgences when it comes to food. Chocolate, truffles, fancy dinners; all indulgences. It is one of the few days of the year that you can have as much chocolate as you want and it is acceptable. Don’t worry, I take full advantage.
Today is the conclusion of Pie Week. I hope you enjoyed all of the pies that were shared over the week. Brandy and Audra did a great job putting everything together. Today there is an amazing giveaway thanks to Kitchen Aid. Don’t miss the other giveaways either; OXO and Le Creuset, Cabot and King Arthur Flour. So many great things you can win, I have to say I am just slightly jealous!
