This evening I took a solo(no dog) run before dinner and the weather was so pretty I almost didn’t want to come inside. It was around 65° and the sun was setting but it was still light enough to enjoy my route before dinner. This past weekend we went to Alabama to visit my parents and I indulged quite a bit. I also wore my new dress which I think looks better with my new hair do than with the long locks .
Easter lunch was a full spread of ham, roasted broccoli and cauliflower with holandaise, sweet potato souffle, strawberry spinach salad, mac and cheese, and a croissant.
Surprisingly I didn’t have seconds, but I wanted to make sure I had room for dessert which was banana pudding. I always look forward to holiday meals regardless of the holiday. It’s one of my favorite things to get a menu planned and ready and this year was planned last minute which stressed me out slightly but it was all very good. I don’t know why I was stressed about the meal, but I always like to know what I’m having and when we’re eating. It’s probably a control issue, but let’s just say I like to be a planner;)
Since the Braves opening day was tonight I used my food planning trait to make an opening day dinner.
Nothing says baseball better than hot dogs and fries, but I tried to make it slightly healthier so I got sweet potato fries and made a kale salad too. It was almost like being at the game and I didn’t have to worry about dropping mustard all over my pants. Normally I don’t like mustard, but when I have hot dogs it’s my staple condiment. Other times I could care less about it, weird right?
Now that it’s officially baseball season Travis will be glued to the radio and TV so I will get a lot of reading done. Maybe I’ll have time to plan more baseball themed meals;)
Now to bed so I can get up for an early yoga class.
Do you like planning holiday meals or having a theme for the season?
