I love Easter, it is such a fun time of year! It means Spring is here and warm weather too! It is a day of remembering and a day of traditions! What are some of your favorite Easter traditions? Of course there is the traditional Easter baskets from the Easter Bunny, Easter Egg Hunts and decorating Easter Eggs. I have heard a fun of idea of an Easter Egg Hunt with a twist for an older audience. They hunt in the dark with flash lights and they hunt for the confetti eggs and then have a fight with them. Sounds fun huh!
One of my favorite traditions is the Easter Dinner! Do you guys do the traditional Honey Baked Ham, mashed potatoes, Deviled Eggs, Rolls, Glazed Carrots…that is what my house was like growing up and it was oh so yummy!
If this is your family, than you may having noticed that in last week's redplum there was coupons for HONEYBAKED! My personal favorite for Easter Ham!
One of my favorite food bloggers has my favorite recipe for Mashed Potatoes. The Pioneer Woman Miss Ree Dummond. They are seriously heavenly! Every time we have a family get together for a holiday I am in charge of making the mashed potatoes and I use her recipe. These are not for the faint of heart, for those who eat fat free or lite foods…so if this is you, step aside and save more for me! 🙂
Doesn't that look “creamy, steamy, flavorful and delicious”! For step by step instructions with pictures go to The Pioneer Woman‘s cooking page.
