What Are You Serving for Easter Dinner?

I don't know how it works at your house, but in our family Easter is a big deal. There is obviously the church service and the celebration of our Savior's resurrection . . . but then comes the meal which for us is an extension of that celebration. Followed by, of course, the Easter Egg hunt which is just plain silly fun for the kids.

We always do ham, potatoes, green bean casserole, some sort of fancy dessert .  . this meal is second probably only to Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner in that order.

But I'm curious what other people do - do you have something special you serve or eat on Easter?

Recently, I received a gift card to try out HoneyBaked Ham and review it here on my blog. I visited the store on Preston in Plano. For $75, I was able to buy a ham to feed 12-15, a side and a full cheesecake. They have a ton of options including full meals with sides and ready-to-eat entrees.

I have to say the idea of having HoneyBaked Ham cook the Easter meal so we can send more time actually enjoying the people we are celebrating with seems to be a no-brainer.

Tell me this doesn't sound tempting:
"Slow-roasted and smoked, every HoneyBaked Ham is glazed by hand with the signature, sweet, crunchy glaze and has that one-of-a-kind taste that everyone looks forward to."
I don't think there is any way my foil baked ham in the oven while we're at church can compete with that.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
