We had family here yesterday for my birthday and Easter brunch. My sister and our friend Holly handled the decorations and had Easter baskets for everyone!
|David's basket - all things Star Wars - Jack's had Transformers|
We continued our tradition of the birthday person making the meal. Hubster helped. He and I prepared Eggs Benedict our way--served on English muffins or a bed of smoked gouda grits (for this gluten-free girl) with country ham (instead of Canadian bacon), and eggs that were "poached" in the oven and covered with a lovely Hollandaise sauce (the blender way a la Julia Child). We served a bread pudding with fireball whiskey sauce and ice cream from Loblolly Creamery, and fresh strawberries and pineapple. Mimosas were free-flowing. It was lovely.

Today we are feasting on ham sandwiches, deviled eggs and rice salad.
Here's our menu, and as soon as I can find a decent recipe gadget, I'll add the recipes:
Eggs Benedict the Sherman & Lloyd way
Blender Hollandaise Sauce
Smoked Gouda Grits
Fireball Whiskey Sauce
And I also wanted to show you some more photos from the tree cutting on my birthday. We have so much sunshine coming into our living/dining room now.
|Before - our tree in front of the house; Bert and Sally's tree hanging over our roof in the back|
|After - look at all that sunshine!|
