I can’t believe Easter is around the corner. Easter is probably the cutest holiday- definitely has the best candy. Valentine’s Day gives it a good run for it’s money, what with the pink and red overload, but I mean can you really compete with chicks and bunnies? So cute.
I love all the sweet Easter dresses, and the baskets, and the tiny white gloves that little girls wear to church. And who is going to argue with a scavenger hunt for candy? No one. Although, when I was a kid my grandparents used the “Hide and Seek” eggs (bright colors, hard candy shell, “marshmallow” filling). They were …not my favorite… but even if none of us cared for them you better believe it was still a race to the finish to find every last one of those bad boys!
In addition to the candy and egg hunts, I always look forward to the meals with family. My parents (and James parents) still host us for holidays which means I haven’t yet taken over the responsibility of preparing a big family feast. We’ve made it a tradition before each holiday that we go out to eat with just our immediate family the night before. It doesn’t make sense to make a meal knowing we are going to be coming home with plenty of leftovers for the next few days.
One of our favorite places to go right now is Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen. We’ve almost become regulars at our local CSK and just about have the menu memorized. We always start off with a scratch made cocktail- the Painkiller or a Long Island Iced Tea, and an order of chips and salsa. Decisions get tougher from there when we try to choose between the Country Chicken Fried Chicken (hand-battered and served with mashed potatoes, gravy, Southern green beans, Texas toast), the classic Monte Cristo (my personal fav) or one of their delicious salads (like the Grilled Chicken Pecan Salad).

These peep treats would make cute neighbor or teacher gifts. Just print & cut these out, fold over the top of a plastic bag, staple the two corners, and voila! I made three color combos.
