We just recently got a very nice French bakery in our near by town, that make pretty close to French pastries that I have seen since we moved back from France. Their croissants are the correct shape, and I would say as close as it gets. The name of the bakery is "La Boulange."
Must have some healthy fruit included :)
That one very lonely cinnamon roll is a gluten free option for Nicole. She said it was pretty good.
The day was mixed with a few showers earlier in the day, but then the glorious sunshine came out, along with all the birdies singing joyfully outside. Some how I think they knew it was Easter!
This was a pretty fun little flower arrangement to put together. I cleaned out some eggs, then
used the many egg cups that we own, and placed the little chicks with their green mom.
The Easter bunny brought these for us, since we have been all good, and patiently waiting for our chocolate.
We had to have a little photo shoot outdoors, since it was so beautiful.

Sweet faces, and pretty Easter colors
Time to eat! This year I used fingerling potatoes, and for the side dish I made baby artichokes, with mint, lemon, and parsley. Like I said last year, this lamb recipe from "Fine Cooking," is wonderful, and it was just as good this time around as well.
As requested by the family, the cheesecake, from the very same issue of "Fine Cooking."
Nice day, and now there are so many left overs, that I don't have to cook tonight!
Hope everyone had a beautiful Easter Sunday!
