Easter Weekend Report

Why is it when a 3-day weekend happens you need extra days to recover? Soooooo busy!!! I took Friday off to run errands in preparation for Easter; hair cut, Lexi got groomed, I had to get my nails done (thanks hubs), and picked up last minute items for Sunday's tablescape. This was the first time we hosted Easter and it went really well. Saturday was full of time in the kitchen and celebrating a good friend's birthday (restaurant review coming soon). Sharing lots of pictures today.

Let's start with the tablescape. I wanted a fresh "spring" look so I could use it for the next few months. I considered a fresh tulips centerpiece, but as we all know, fresh flowers only last so long. 

Simple strawberry topping for my cheesecake. 1 pint of fresh strawberries, 1/4 cup of sugar, 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract. Mix it all together, cover, and store in the refrigerator over night.

A few Easter dinner shots
Pear wrapped in prosciutto topped with goat cheese
Bacon Wrapped Green Beans
Mom's famous cheesecake recipe. It was a hit!
I bought confetti eggs for the hubs because he's a big kid at heart. I knew a war would be sparked! This is my family and why I love them!
 Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and Passover weekend. Until next post...xoxo Becca
