easter is past, but i'm still posting

{lunch at squat and gobble in the marina}
{dessert browsing at miette}
{challah bread - note: when it says let rise an hour, don't leave for 3 hour church}
{super easy salad, but fancy enough to impress - recipe in the easter post}
{i thought i had a lot of eggs (left), then i saw my sister-in-law julie's basket. she is fast!}
I love easter. We are all in our mid to late 20's, and some (uh hem, Rick) are in their 30's. My parents haven't let up on the egg hunts and we request them every year. They have some usual tricks (plant beds, and inside shoes) but are always looking for new ways to be sneaky. My mom was up at 6am Sunday and set the table and decorated it, and I will never be able to beat that, so I let that go and focused on my bread and salad. This bread recipe makes a LOT. We only ate half of one loaf at dinner. In the future I would only poppyseed one loaf and just plain egg the second for variety. Mom's new surprise this year was a 'spiritual grand prize'. This year, I barely found any eggs, but got the grand prize, and then so did my brother! Luckily, he had already watched his dvd of the prophet for his additional spiritual grand prize, so that went to me. Parents are funny.

Sounds wonderful! It doesn't matter how old you get, it can be fun when parents 'parent' once in a while. We never loose that kid in us:-)

sounds like so much fun. I would love to be around family more often in the times of holidays. The challah bread looks great - and HUGE. You're right. I was going to make it for our easter, then cooked too much of the entre, so settled for Rhode's rolls. It's still in my "to-try" pile. :)

I just glanced at that picture of your mom and thought it was me and TRIED TO REMEMBER WHERE WE HAD BEEN WHEN THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN.
I had to look TWICE.
Apparently, all Koreans look the same to me.
