I took pictures of our Easter baskets, but Brady deleted them off of the camera. They are on his lap top, but I haven't retrieved them yet. I'll post them later.
Sharon also received a recipe book that I finally finished. I meant to have it done for Christmas, but I didn't have enough time. I've been working on finishing all my unfinished projects lately and FINALLY finished her recipe book. You can see the idea here. I laminated her dividers instead of contact paper like I used on mine. It turned out amazing and beautiful. It's nice to have that "to do" off my list!
As Brady described above, I didn't want to "color" the eggs. I saw a great idea from Pinterest to use egg shells (among other things) when planting tomatoes. You can see this idea here:
Jason and Sharon came over for Easter dinner. It's been a while since I've seen them, and was happy that they had time off work to come. Dinner turned out really well - everything was yummy - which makes me extra happy when EVERYTHING turns out.
We had a shank ham from Albertsons that was 99 cents a pound!
Usually we have a spiral ham - but I didn't want to spend the money on it.
I made a pineapple glaze for the ham instead (and had everything in my food storage):
1 (8 oz) can crushed pineapple
1 Cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 Tablespoon prepared mustard
1 Teaspoon dry mustard
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
Dash of salt
Drain syrup from pineapple, set aside. Combine drained pineapple, brown sugar, mustard, lemon juice and salt in saucepan. Heat until sugar is dissolved. Stirring constantly. Add as much reserved syrup as needed to make mixture of a good brushing consistency.
It was really yummy and a keeper! We loved it!
I also made Funeral potatoes here:

It was a nice dinner and great to have my children here.
