Easter Review- It was the best of times


Easter was a really hectic but fun day. I woke up at 5:30am to start the coconut cake (cue applause) but it was so fabulous I am telling you it was worth it. It is made with cake flour (never heard of it but HELLO! Amazing!) Then I made the fritata and set it aside to heat up later. We headed to church and had many compliments on our color coordination (thank you very much!)
The sermon was amazing, so inspiring and tear jerking. Then we headed back home to have our brunch. I love the way the table turned out (set the night before). I have learned the hard way if I don't do the decor the night before I feel rushed and have no fun. It's my favorite part!
Before we sat however, we had fondue. My family was like a bunch of vultures!!! They love their food but that blue cheese fondue was the best thing I've ever had. I blanched the veggies (asparagus, french beans, broccoli etc) which made it way better. I also got olive bread and cut it into cubes. Dipping that in the blue cheese fondue was UNREAL. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Good! I highly recommend this. I can't wait to do it again. Make sure you get the fancy strong blue cheese. It's worth it!

Had to show you how much Landon loved his chair and froggy!!!

All in all a fabulous time! Happy Easter everyone!
PS: saw Steve Perry again last night!!!! He's stalking me! HA!

I love to set the table the night before when I can relax and do it a a leisurely pace. It's one of my favorite parts as well.

I think Stevie is reading your blog and now knows what a fabulous cook, decorator, wife and mom you are! Hey, my machine is fixed and I want to do one more shirt for Landon before I mail. I should have gotten them there for Easter! Oops...You go girl and thanks for sharing.
