Happy Bunny to You! One of the most entertaining Easter dinners I’ve experienced included a rendition of that song, sung to the dinner guests by one of my (to remain unnamed) friend’s usually teetotaller mom, after half a glass of wine. To the tune of Happy Birthday. Oh, man, it was fabulous, I thought my friend and her dad (and I) would die laughing. Happy Bunny indeed. It was awesome.
We opened this day with Nathan’s annual Easter egg hunt, here in the house. Less hilarious than a tipsy teetotaller, but adorable and fun. I’m kicking myself that I didn’t store the eggs in the fridge so I could make egg salad today. Dumb. Oh well. It’s not like I can’t hard cook another bunch of eggs in no time and make egg salad anytime I want. It’s just the idea of waste, I guess, bugs me.
Oh, speaking of bugs, we had a brief pause in the action for me to vacuum a spider off the ceiling. Lots of the the creepy little speedsters this time of year. Ick. Shiver. Ick. (Sorry for the visual, Suz.)
I shrugged off the heeby jeebies and turned to the refrigerator, where there awaited me cold mmmmmmmatzo balls. My favorite leftovers’ breakfast. I had two, right out of the pan. With three strips of crispy Neuske bacon. Hey, not exactly Kosher(!), but I had to get the nod to pork in there on Easter Sunday, I’m not having ham today. In fact, we’re having the mellowist of Easters, hangin’ here at the hacienda with no plan at all. I, of all people, don’t really dig Easter eats. I don’t know. Not a ham lover. I’m much more into the Passover goodies, truth be told. Me and my matzo balls, that’s a Happy Easter in my book. You enjoy whatever treats and traditions you’re sharing today!
Bistec Cubano (Cuban steak with onions), yellow rice, and black beans for dinner (recipes posted in comments, below). With lots of fresh lime. Not particularly Easter-y, but de-li-cious! I powered up for cooking dinner by having a little late-afternoon nap, ahhh. Nice enough to grill the steak outside, although not quite warm enough to eat out there. That’s OK. It’s been an amazing week, couldn’t ask for more.
