Easter Weekend Recap

Well I hope all of you had a wonderful Easter with your families. Ours was a little different this year, but we sure made the best of it. My Mother took a bad turn on Good Friday and spent the weekend in ICU. However she is back to a regular room and being watched carefully. We took the weeones up to visit her for Easter yesterday,and she loved it.
Saturday in between running back and forth to the hospital, I got a chance to spend some time with the girls making there Easter eggs. They had a whole lot of fun, and they turned out so pretty as we used some of the banty chicken eggs (Much smaller then my brown eggs)
We had our Easter supper last evening with my Father. I had cooked a large ham and we had mashed potatoes,veggies,and homemade rolls. Lemon pie for desert. It went over very well and the girls did the dishes after supper for Mom.
Today I put the ham bone and few other pieces of ham into the slow cooker and made up a soup to have for supper tonight, with homemade bread.
This is a recipe I came across and thought I would give it a try. I did however change a few things in it and also added a few. (I had no more green peppers left in the freezer so I put celery instead.) I also added a little carrot.

I also added a little fresh parsley that I had int he fridge to use up.

It is another beautiful Spring day outside. The weeones have spent all morning out there,and I think it is time that I do the same. Enjoy your day.

  1. Sounds like a good weekend inspite of spending time in the hospital. I hope that your mom continues to improve and will be able to come home soon.

    Your supper sounds really good tonight. Have a great day with your family.
