Easter Festivus

Really this post should be titled, “How I Ate All the Things.”

We survived yet another family holiday. After realizing that I had boiled all of our eggs for egg dying and didn’t have any to make the egg casserole for Easter brunch, I set foot out into the city to try and find a store that was a) open and b) had eggs left. Three stores later, I ended up at a 7-11 to score the last dozen of mostly-intact eggs. This is when planning ahead would have been nice.

When I returned from my shopping expedition, Squish was up and we checked out the goodies the Easter Bunny left him.

The Easter Bunny was going to fill the eggs with jelly beans, but at the last minute decided to put in coins instead. But that’s okay; he still received his annual allotment of Blue Dye #2.

Peeps on a stick! Who knew?

Brunch turned out awesome despite my last-minute running around for ingredients. We had egg bake with bacon, cheese, and green onion, fruit salad, and some pastries I picked up from the bakery around the corner. On the fancy china, of course.

Then we enjoyed the awesome weather San Francisco was having. My folks took Squish up to the roof to get his bike riding on while Hulk and I lounged by the pool. Then it was time to head to my sister’s place for Easter dinner. We got cleaned up,

I can bring my bike, right?

And headed North to Napa, where mimosas and piles of deliciousness awaited us.

Amanda even got me sparkling white grape juice for my mimosas! Didn’t even miss the real thing.

Then we ate. And ate. And ate. And Squish found some hidden eggs so he mostly ate chocolate.

I think it was pork tenderloin stuffed with some spinach stuff and topped with cumberland sauce, asparagus, beet and goat cheese tartine, and homemade fresh-baked bread! Nom.

And then we rolled home.

  1. Sounds like fun! 🙂 I hate when I forget an important ingredient and have to scramble at the last minute. I did that on Thanksgiving… ended up at CVS lol.
