Hello everyone! I’m back after a little break from the normal routine. We had Spring Break with Easter immediately afterwards, and it just seemed rather unusual. Maybe it’s not, but I felt like it all blended and rushed together and then ‘poof!’ Easter is gone.
We normally don’t go very far during Spring Break (we do a lot of stay-cations) however last year we skipped off to the coast for a couple of nights and this year we spent two nights in Sunriver – a resort area close to Bend, Oregon that apparently most everyone has been to before except us.
It was a brief, yet lovely little trip to central Oregon, the kind of trip that always makes me wish for a longer getaway so that we can relax and explore more. However, I can’t complain.
Immediately after returning I began to prepare for Easter. It all felt very last-minute, even hosting dinner was rather unprepared up until two days prior. I ended up throwing together a homemade dinner for a total of 9 adults, 3 teenagers, and 5 kids.

We had an Easter egg hunt, followed by ham, deviled eggs, green salad, twice baked potatoes, bacon cups, green beans, creamed cheese corn, fruit salad, and cheddar chives scones.
Dessert included blueberry pie, walnut pie, ice cream and sugar cookies for the kids to decorate. After dinner some people played games, others chatted, and we all finally settled down together and watched the new Jumanji movie.
Easter was better than I could have anticipated. It’s always so nice to surround yourself with people who you care about, and it’s always a pleasure for me to be able to cook food for others.
How was your Easter?
