We had the almost-in-laws and my cousin for Easter dinner, and a good time was had by all! Several of the menfolk gathered 'round the BBQ in the rain and got stuff grilled. Per tradition, I almost forgot to serve two dishes (asperagus and the veggie main dish), but caught that in the nick of time. I sent everybody home with their selections from the communal Easter basket, having decided that people in their late 20's and above do not need individual baskets.
Some stray wedding stuff got settled, too. The happy couple seems to like my idea for picnic decor, colorful paper lanterns to hang from the trees. My husband is so excited about the rehearsal dinner picnic that he bought an extra grill, plus another skewer contraption that lets you turn the skewers. (Both items were tested last night, and passed inspection.)
Today, tired -- but still feeling the glow from the festivities.
Tomorrow a friend from the far end of the state will drive out of her way to come for a short visit and lunch!
What's happening out your way?
