Lemony Greek Easter Cookies

Greek Easter Lemon Cookies

Lemony Greek Easter Cookies

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!

What a weekend!  Gorgeous weather, Costco, Trader Joes, a trip to the Planetarium, and the Badgers won!  Did you watch any of the Elite 8 basketball games?  We don’t watch a lot of basketball, but come March Madness, that is about all that is on here.  We are from WI, and big Badger fans in this house.  So it was  a stressful Saturday night around here.  But we are now so excited for them to be going to the Final Four for only the 3rd time, ever!  My son also had his first two games of the spring flag football season.  So it was a sport filled weekend around here.  Almost looking forward to getting back to the work week, so things can settle down a little……Almost.

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.

Holiday baking is in full swing.  Everything from cookies to candies are getting worked on in my house.  That also means it is time to start thinking about what to give teachers, friends, and neighbors for gifts.  I love giving something homemade.  To me, it says so much more than a gift card to a coffee place.  It shows you really care, and took the time out of your day to create something for them.  Plus giving something with chocolate and peanut butter, is a sure way to make someones day!

I hope everyone had a good Halloween and a great weekend.  We had a fun night of trick or treating, followed by way too much candy consumption.  I have no will power, it is not pretty.  Which is why I tend to give away pretty much everything I bake.   Sometimes I worry my friends are going to stop talking to me, because I supply them with so much stuff!  But I guess when there is chocolate involved, there is room for forgiveness.
