Wow, Easter’s an actual holiday? Who knew?

Posted by Lissa on April 25, 2011

We went over to Mike’s parents’ house yesterday for a lovely Easter dinner. Our contribution was a baked-from-scratch chocolate triple-layer cake held together with homemade whipped cream and coated in homemade frosting.

Now, there are two ways this could have come about:

A) Lissa decided that she was FAR too good a baker to bring a STORE-BOUGHT birthday cake, that she would never deign to stoop so low, and did it all herself. Or …

B) She pulled up to an absolutely empty Publix parking lot Sunday morning and went, “Oh sh*t. Easter. Holiday. Oh CRAP!!”


I turned my cupboard inside out, sent Mike to Walmart for half and half and whipping cream, and made this:


How was your Easter? 🙂

    That looks like a wonderful celebration of the First Sunday after the Full Moon after the Vernal Equinox (according to the Lutheran Hymnal, back some years ago). All the festivity lacked were the usual spring fertility symbols, the eggs and bunnies.

    I am happy that you managed to survive the Publix debacle with such success. Perhaps this is but the beginning of a new era of baking and family thinking. Next thing we know, you will be making waffles, pancakes, or oatmeal (from the round can) every morning, and custards and pies for lunch!

    (Microwave oatmeal, from the round box. Take microwaveable bowl, add 1/3 c. oatmeal, 2/3 c. water, tablespoon dried cranberries or raisins. Nuke a minute or so – don’t let it boil over. Let set for a minute or so. Enjoy.)

    Happy Monday, and blessed be!

    Speaking as a man lacking much of a sweet tooth; that looks delicious.

    we had a lovely Easter with an interesting and YUMMY dessert made flour-less by my Cousin’s wife, for her observance of Passover. it was made of eggs butter and Chocolate and just so YUMMMY… can’t be said enough.

    I’m want the recipe just because it was so good

    around here many stores were open, seem to be much more this year than last.
