We are no longer hosting the large family holiday celebrations at Casa Buffy. Our family has splintered over the last few years, now that both Dad and Mother are gone. My-Sister-The-Nurse had the basement of her condo finished last year, and now has room for all her family plus Frankie’s family, Dear Husband and me! She’ll be hosting us for Easter.
I found this adorable dinner roll recipe. The dough is shaped into small oval rolls, and before it’s cooked you make two snips in the dough to create “bunny ears.” I’ll need to be careful not to over cook, or we’ll get brown ears, but I’m going to give this a try.
I’d like to do the goofy deviled eggs that look like little chicks. Rather than cutting the egg in half, you make a cut cross-wise about a third of the way from the end. Scoop out the yolk, and do the regular yolk mixture. Then, you refill the egg, put the white back on like a little cap (slightly tilted), and make the tiniest carrot beak. I think they used capers for eyes, but there must be other options. Here’s a link to Rachael Ray, who shows how to make the eggs.
And, of course, I’ll be making Vernice Kastman refrigerator rolls for My-Sister-The-Nurse. She’ll hide them all, and everyone will let her get away with it. It seems like a small price to pay for being treated to Easter dinner.
I’m looking forward to having more time with my family. That’s one of the best things about being drawn together to celebrate: family time!
