Spring break has been great so far. Saturday night I had my parents and my cousin over for a good old fashioned Easter bbq. OK, not so old fashioned, but definitely called for as I hadn’t had meat in nearly 40 days. We had burgers and beer brats. They were delicious.
I also made macaroon type nests with mini cadbury eggs in them. They were delicious. I actually got them from a blog and I can’t remember which one now. But they were adorable and delicious. Here’s a picture.
They just consisted of toasted coconut and egg whites. Then, you put the best Easter Candy of all time on the top. I love the Cadbury mini eggs.
Then, Saturday morning I tried Kodiak pancakes for the first time. They are delicious. I added pumpkin to them, and topped them with Biscoff spread and coconut. (I love coconut.)
I hope everybody had a great Easter!!
Well, I started Lent hoping that giving up meat and chocolate would make me want it less. I’d hoped that by living without the two things I’d realize that I can live without them in my life, and I’d make all of these healthy choices in place of meat and chocolate.
But instead of meat, I ate grilled cheese and pierogies and pizzas.
And instead of chocolate I made cinnamon streusel muffins, ate laffy taffy, and butterscotch chips.
And I also realized, that I really like meat. I don’t need it every day, but I do like it occasionally.
But, chocolate…that’s another story.
