Yesterday, Palm Sunday, Spane and I saw an Easter Bunny hopping around the Americana at Brand. The girl who was accompanying the “Easter Bunny” asked where we were going. I said “We’re going to Sur La Table to get things to cook Rabbit!” The Bunny was suitably horrified, and the girl, Spane and I had a nice laugh.
I love Easter Season, and I love Lent. Purple is my favorite colour, and I get to wear my purple clothes, purple accessories, etc., from the beginning of Lent (Ash Wednesday) to the start of Holy Week, Palm Sunday.
I also love Easter Season for all the fun pastel decorations. We have flowers and butterfly gels for our windows that Spane put up this year, we have a rattan bunny in a little cage that I bought at Ralph’s last year, and our decorations that we made for our Catholic Seder last year, which we might do again this year.
Update: We made our Catholic Seder meal and really enjoyed it. Our meal included Grilled Mediterranean Lamb Chops, Tabouleh and Lemon Bars.
This year, I am going to take pictures of the eggs that I am going to decorate with natural dyes, onions, coffee, tumeric and beets. I have also been finding interesting recipes for deviled eggs, after all I have to have something to do with all those decorated eggs! I’ll be posting those as we go along towards Easter.
