Snippets of Easter Sunday

 Phew, I just finished all the dishes from last nights Easter dinner! Now I get to sit back and get some other things done today, like sewing for the shop. We had such a beautiful Easter Sunday which started with going to Mass at noon, then some lunch out afterwards. We had invited friends over for dinner
 where I cooked the usual leg of lamb and seasonal veggies. I must say the lamb was out of this world tasty to me this year. We bought a local grass fed lamb from Whole Foods, and boy was it good. Often times I think the lamb that is sold in the markets from New Zealand has a much more gamy taste and smell. This lamb had none of that, and was so good.   Here are a few pictures from the table.
 I bought some new chargers. I was lusting over the ones at Pottery Barn, but ended up finding these at Cost Plus, they were priced way cheaper than the PB version. The rest of the decor I had already, and kept it simple.
 Always have to have some group shot right?!

The requested cheesecake.

Hope everyone had a great day. I feel refreshed and renewed!!


  1. Welsh lamb for us, an Easter tradition.
