Our Easter Plans….

by Janell on April 9, 2009

Easter is different here. It doesn’t feel like it is as big of a deal as I’d like it to be. Not many little girls in pastel dresses or boys in cute outfits. Hardly any stores have Easter treats on sale. It has gotten better since we moved here. We can now find plastic eggs – but no baskets to decorate for the kids. You can’t even find stuff to dye eggs! Growing up my mom would make a ton of Easter chocolates – bunny pops, crosses, bunnies, etc! It was always so much fun helping her make the chocolates! One thing we can’t get here that I will not miss is the grass for the baskets! Easter is a holiday I miss celebrating in the US.

This year we haven’t decided how we are going to celebrate. In years past we have had friends over or gone to our friends houses. I love to cook and enjoy the whole Easter feast! We will probably have a ham, and hash brown casserole (if I can figure out how to make it with fresh potatoes), green bean casserole, rolls, and of course a tons of sweets!

Here are a few of the things I am going to try to make:

Homemade Peanut Butter-Filled Chocolate Easter Eggs – at Baking Bites

Easter Nests with Jelly Bean Eggs from Happy to be at Home.

I want to melt some chocolate and make something but I don’t think I can get any kind of molds here.

I am sure we will have a great day celebrating the resurrection of our Lord and Savior regardless of what we eat or what we do!
