We hope you had a great Easter weekend with your family and friends. We gathered at Grandma Parke’s house today to celebrate with the family. One thing I always look forward to is Grandma Parke’s decorations. Her decorations are always great. Every table had a centerpiece with some “Easter grass” in different colors with lambs, birds or eggs. Too cute.
On Easter, everyone brings a dish to share. This year, I brought roasted beets with yellow peppers and strawberry onions. It’s super easy and I love the color combination. To make this dish, just cut up the beets, yellow peppers and onions in cubes, then drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt to taste, and broil in the oven for about 20-30 minutes. I turn them half way through. If you try the beets, and they taste like dirt, then they are not done. Cook them for a bit longer until they taste sweet. That’s how you know they are done. 😉
My plate consisted of ham, smoked pork (made by Matt), broccoli salad, squash casserole, broccoli casserole, and my roasted beet dish. Can you tell I love veggies?
While everyone was eating, Piper decided the pool needed some cleaning.
And Hayden was ready to help!
Happy Easter from our family to yours!
