Easter Weekend Plans

We were supposed to go and explore St. Augustine, FL this coming weekend but with the new addition to our family, we've decided to postpone.  I know Tally would love to frolic on the beach but I don't think I'm ready to deal with a salt water and sand soaked pup just yet. 

What have you got planned for the Easter holiday weekend? 

We're planning lots of walking with the dog, some sitting outdoor relaxing and reading and there will be a ham involved.  We're heading to the Marietta Farmer's Market on Saturday morning to see what is fresh and in season to keep Mr. Piggy company on the Sunday table.  I can't wait to see all the fresh veggies piled high!  I saw Alex Guarnaschelli make this amazing looking pea salad so I have my fingers crossed for fresh peas.  What are your favorite ham side dishes?

Do you have a special dessert planned?  I'm still undecided, though something light and lemony might be perfect for the occasion.  And I'm hoping that a certain Bunny brings me a Cadbury Creme Egg because I haven't had one since last year and I'm really looking forward to it.


  1. I'm headed to have dinner with my extended family on Sunday. We're having standing rib roast, roasted potatoes w/ gravy, asparagus and salad. There will probably be peanut butter pie for dessert, but I'll probably skip that and have a second glass of wine instead! I'm sure there will also be a ramble around the farm property.

  2. We are going over to my parents house for dinner. I think there is ham on the menu. We are still trying to firm up what to bring! Nothing like late plans...

  3. I am super excited for Easter. It is easily one of my favorite holidays. It is just so simple and relaxing with great, light food.

    I am actually headed to Georgetown, MD this weekend with my parents. I want to get a great new photo of them and have it printed on canvas for Mothers Day. She has been wanting a new photo of her and my father and I am thrilled to be the one to take it.

    As for dessert... Oh boy! I have a few things up my sleeves. Ill have to let you know which one I decide. :) I hope you have a wonderful holiday, especially with the new addition!

  4. Congratulations on the new addition, I have two little pups and I love walking my dogs! Its the only reason I walk!
    Thank you for the link to the pea salad, I am going to give it a try.
    Happy Easter!
