Easter morning

The trifle is made and chilling, the roasted veggies are roasting, and when they come out of the over the potato casserole goes in. Then the mini hot dogs wrapped in crescents. When they all come out, it'll be time to go pick up Mom and head to Mike and Donna's. If Mom doesn't change her mind, as she well may.

Last night was a good night- I talked to all three of my daughters! Manda and Ben are having friends over, and eating dinner on the wedding china. Heather and Ed are waiting til tomorrow night to have the big dinner, when Ed, Jeanne, Michelle, Mia, Sienna and Bella are there. Steph and Dan are having brunch with his family, then dinner with us. Dan gets to ease into meeting the family- Mike, Mikey and Joe today. The men in the family can be overpowering, and they're all protective of Stephanie.

I made a new trifle, instead of Joseph's trifle. This seemed more springlike. Ladyfingers, banana pudding, strawberries, pineapple and bananas. It called for whipped cream on top, but there's no room in the trifle bowl.

We ate at Applebee's yesterday, and I had a new dish. Served on a hot plate, it's 2 corn cakes, topped with a half a chicken breast, topped with shaved ham, cheese, bacon, and barbecue sauce. It came with corn spiced with jalepano, which I substituted with fries. I brought half of it home, there was so much. But it was really good!

And so it goes!
