Good Friday's Standing Rib Roast was outstanding (groan - bad pun intended). No pictures; it was just gone too fast.
Easter Sunday dinner is on Saturday, so people can travel on Sunday without missing dinner. I cooked two boneless lamb legs, totaling about 8 pounds. There were some leftovers. Of course, I didn't take many pictures. So, here's my plate.
And Jeff helping himself to some roasted roots.
Sunday morning was all about the Hot Cross Buns. I made 3 dozen, adapting my technique to use the cool rise method I learned from the Farm Wives' bread cookbook. It was pretty successful. Remind me the week before next Easter and I'll post it then, so you can all try it!
Sunday morning was also all about hunting for Easter baskets. This was a teaser I put in the middle of the table before I went to bed. The big kids picked at it while making pancakes at 8AM. Maybe to the rest of you 8AM is normal, but we're late risers. They all went to take naps after they ate.
The weekend was sunny, and my house was gloriously noisy for 3 days. What more can anyone ask of a holiday?
