Hi everyone! Are you ready for Easter? It snuck up on me this year. Not being around my kids, grands and my mom I totally missed that it is this weekend! Shame on me I know. But in my defense I'm also in the middle of packing and preparing for vacation and let's not forget that today is my husband's birthday. That vacation will definitely be needed by the time this move is over.
I thought I'd share a few of my favorite dishes with you from the past. No they aren't keto or even low carb for the most part, but it is Easter. Let's just enjoy it!
Lemon my favorite thing, next to chocolate. Oh wait, you don't want dessert first? I do! AND after dinner! LOL
You can start your morning with a wonderful treat for breakfast or a big meal.
pineapple upside down pancakes
Side Dish or appetizer
How about some deviled eggs or angel eggs if you prefer. My daddy loved these and I think of him every time I fix eggs.
My Aunt Dianne's macroni salad. She made it every time we had a family get together and Daddy loved it too. Gosh I miss them both so much...
Aunt Linda always brought sausage balls. Daddy loved them. Okay in case you didn't know, Daddy loved food! Me too. Apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
Now if you love these but want to cut back on carbs, I have revamped them to fit the #keto and #lowcarb life style.
Our Easter dinner when I was growing up consisted of a fresh ham, a smoked ham (we had 26 people to feed and not everyone liked the same type) potato salad, deviled eggs, collards, pickled beets, a bowl of pickles, green beans with new potatoes, macaroni salad, watergate salad, rolls and several types of desserts. All the vegetables were fresh out of my grandparents garden and when they were too old to farm and moved to the city we bought our veggies from their old neighbors or friends if we did not have them in our own gardens. Oh how I miss those days. I truly do.
I hope that you enjoy your Easter weekend, Spring break and time with your families. Eat, drink and be merry for no one knows what tomorrow may hold. Live, love and laugh. Dance in the rain. Play with the kids, stay up late, eat that dessert and be present.
Love to you all!!
