I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday. Our family had a rather quiet day at home with far too much food to go around. This years menu included a rather eclectic mix but was delicious if I do say so myself. We enjoyed some pinapple ham, stuffing, macaroni salad, sauted asparagus with bacon, and deviled eggs. Cocktails were a home recipe for sparkling strawberry drinks that were WAY too good. Desert was a total sugar fest of coconut cake that brought rave reviews.
We even had our own entertainment hour of egg delights. The Princess was too lazy to dye eggs this year, so instead of the usual egg hunt, we substituted a egg toss instead. We did much better than expected although the eggs did eventually break. Our backyard is rather small, so we were unable to go for distance tosses and had to compensate for height instead. We had to call it quits when the sun was going down and one of the eggs found its way into the side of the swamp cooler. Yeah, not pretty but we had a good time anyway.
The eggs on the table were a sneaky find. They are real egg shells that are stuffed with small confetti. Used as place cards, and we orginally planned to add to the egg toss mix. Well, that was not a good choice. They were so darn hard I have a welt on my arm where the Princess made a direct hit and the egg did not break! We had to crush them to get the darn confetti out! Oh well, live and learn.
Have a great week, tons of work including travel for me this week.
