I know I'm really slow in writing about Easter. I'm in the third week of a lovely case of bronchitis (thanks for the cold, boys!), but I do believe it's survivable, and I have managed not to infect my dearly beloved!
Most of the kids were home for Easter, and Shannon brought not only her boyfriend, but also his co-worker's dog, for whom they were babysitting for a couple of weeks. Tippie was a nice houseguest. He runs around too much for my taste, but he didn't waste a lot of time barking, didn't get up on the furniture, and didn't beg - although, like most dogs, he's a master of looking sorrowful.
I did make 3 dozen cholesterol free Hot Cross Buns for Easter, which my dearly beloved devoured. Seriously, I think he ate at least half of them over the course of 2 days.
And he shared with Tippie, despite the fact that Shannon told him in no uncertain terms that Tippie is on a diet according to his owners.
But, hey, it was Easter, and Tippie deserved to celebrate.
I cooked a 15 pound boneless leg of lamb. I think everyone enjoyed it, considering that there was only one 8 ounce slice left at the end of dinner.
I was suffering "digestive issues" that day, and so I cooked minimal food - lamb, rice and 4 pounds of asparagus.
So, that's my life the past couple of weeks! I hope the world is being good to all of you!
