The last time I cooked Easter dinner for everyone was 2010. So it was about time I took my turn. 38 were invited. 14 attended. Needless to say everyone that showed up took home leftovers and Far Guy and I have plenty to eat for the next few days.
The tall boys put out eggs for the little boy egg hunt. The yard was dotted with eggs. Teddy had fun gathering them up…he also enjoyed the train upstairs.
Jennifer made carrot cake cupcakes with even some gluten free ones for her grandfather. She took over the kitchen on Saturday afternoon and made crescent rolls. Andy double smoked the ham in his smoker. (It was really good!) My Mom made some pickles and Cindy and Jody brought a tray of veggies. I made turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, cheesy potatoes, corn, coleslaw, baked beans, fruit and Rice Krispy bars.
It was a good gathering. I couldn’t have done it without great help from Andy,Jen, Adam and Noah. Look how tall those boys are…next year I bet they pass up their Dad.
Noah and my other baby brother Jody washed and dried a mountain of dishes.
Here are the “guys”
Andy, Gene, Adam and Noah
After everyone left we all had a nap…even Chance.
