Some elements the same here: Brisket of beef with carrots and mushrooms, peas, roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, yorkshire puddings. Then apple crumble if any room left!

Hubby is grilling t-bones tonight. It's also my baby's birthday, so we'll be having ice cream M&M cake. Yum.

Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

It was a gorgeous day, so we (the kids and spouses) barbecued steaks, plus a veggie burger for the DIL. Plus grilled zucchini and eggplant, potato salad, and grapes Marnier for dessert.

Then we had a mock egg-hunt. Have you ever watched seven adults pretend one five-month-old is actually hunting easter eggs? But then somebody let the dogs out, and you know what happened to the eggs!

My kitchen is a disaster. I can hardly wait for the day family holidays can be held at one of their houses! :D

Sounds like a lovely barbecue, MLE!

We had a wonderful day at the beach, and then came back to a delicious Easter dinner: baked ham, twice-baked potatoes, eggplant parmesan, stuffed shells, marinated green beans, strawberry cheesecake and cannoli! Best part about it: my mother-in-law cooked everything...I didn't have to do anything but eat!

If you go to Costco and like a good rub I just picked up a Kirkland brand Mesquite seasoning and it was awesome. Put a liberal shaking on my chicken breast, seared both sides on high and then covered and lowered the heat. Yum, and it really kept the moisture inside. Will have to see how it does with those Costco filets....
