Easter Baking

served with Tomato Basil Soup


Ukrainian Easter Doves...


... and Paska for Easter Sunday!  



And I'm sure I am re-gaining some of that lost weight just from smelling all this bread!  ;)

Our day ended with a trip to the Urgent Care for Captain.  He actually has been recovering from a staph infection since last week, and today he had an allergic reaction to the antibiotics.  He will now be on Benadryl for the next week or so... It's been a really rough week for him, though our trip to the ocean was a nice distraction!   I'm just thankful that we were home (in town) when he came down with the reaction, and that Sean was home this year!  (Last Good Friday I was on my own taking Snuggles, and all the rest of the kids, to the hospital for an x-ray!  Yes, this is one tradition that has got to stop!) 

Anyways, tomorrow I'm hoping that we will be able to dye Easter eggs, mold butter, bake our lamb cake, and get started on the rest of our Easter Menu.   How are your Easter preparations coming along?

  1. Oh my goodness, Jessica! Everything looks amazing and I may have to try one of these - I'm always adding to Easter at the 11th hour!

    I'm keeping Captain in my prayers. I hope he's feeling better soon! And I hope your Easter is uneventful from here on out.

    Happy Easter to you and your beautiful family!

  5. Just came back from a beautifull easter vigil in our Neo Gothic church. I am one of the sacristans so it has been een busy night. Couldn't sleep and decided to look at some of my favorite blogs. And then I read about your butter mold. Put my own wooden mold in salt water yesterday afternoon and forgot it completely. So thanks to you someone in the Netherlands is going to have her Easter breakfast with 'boterlam'. Blessed Easter for you and your family!

  9. Wish I could bake like you. Seems that I don't have much reason to anymore though, as my beloved husband passed home to God last tuesday. My heart hurts so deeply.

  10. Hi Jessica,

    Praying for Captain. Please post an update when you have a chance. Antibiotic reactions can be rough.

    1. He is doing a lot better! Still taking some Benadryl but it seems to be clearing up. Thank you! Last night it was my turn for another reaction and I came super close to having my husband take me to the ER, but I finally was able to get it under control with Zyrtec! I'm started to get frustrated with all these allergies!!

      Happy Easter!

    Hope Captain is ok. Sending many prayers.
