|This sight of this egg greeted me Easter morning. It was delivered not by a bunny but by a duck! Squeak to be exact.|
We had a wonderful Easter Sunday worshiping and celebrating our risen Lord Jesus Christ, and I hope you did, too!
One of my favorite quotes from my Advent/Lent devotional (a wonderful MUST READ of a book) goes something like this....Jesus drank a cup of wrath without mercy so that I could drink a cup of mercy without wrath.
Isn't that good? Ever since I read this it has crossed my mind several times daily and cannot help but be filled with gratitude for what Jesus did for me.
|Coconut Fudge Pie and Lemon Chess Pie|
Mike and I have been doing a no sugar or wheat, low glycemic diet of sorts for the past two weeks. Easter Sunday was our first cheat. We kept it pretty simple with roasted pork and potatoes, deviled eggs, salad and fruit and the best part was enjoying these two pies I made. I'm still feeling a little funny from eating them, I guess all that sugar, but boy was the one on the left especially good.
I can't believe I am saying this because I love all things lemony but the lemon chess was way too lemon saturated for me. I soaked the sugar in thinly sliced lemons for several hours. Whoa! It will make your toes curl. Maybe it would be good cut in half? But man oh man was that coconut fudge good. The fudge part is homemade pudding. Mmmm-mmmm. And we toasted coconut to sprinkle on top but it is not pictured because we sprinkled by the slice so it wouldn't get soggy.
Coconut. It is like the wonder food these days, isn't it?
And lastly I wanted you to meet Rosemary. I'm calling her Rosie for short, though her disposition is anything but. She has decided to nest under my rosemary bush right next to the walkway that leads to our porch and front door. Whenever we go by she hisses, jumps around all startled-like and then gives us the evil eyes like you see pictured above.
Bless her heart.
Ducks are not very smart.
My flowerbed is plenty big to accommodate her without her being so close to the path. I'm not sure what she was thinking. Plus, she is going to be difficult to photograph once those ducklings start hatching. Oh well. She has 12 nice little eggs up under her feathery self and by my calculations we will have ducklings by mid May.
