Our Easter Celebration

While the weather may have been a bit cold and breezy, the Bauer clan had the most wonderful Easter this year. Only wished our youngest daughter Heidi and her husband and our granddaughter were able to spend the day with us as well. Easter just doesn't seem like Easter with out everyone together. Spent most of the day at our oldest daughter's home, and loved how Kerry decorated the kitchen and dinner table for Easter. It was quite festive for the holiday! Enjoyed the most wonderful feast which Kerry prepared. Kerry, you really out did yourself this year, and the ham was spectacular!!

Kerry prepared 2 new side dishes this year...
1.) Parsnip Whipped Potatoes (which the parsnips made the mashed potatoes taste slightly sweet, and oh so good).

2.) Balsamic-Glazed Green Beans, which were prepared with sweet onions, dried cranberries, slivered almonds, and a bit of balsamic vinaigrette dressing, and I loved 'em.

Kerry also made Grandma Richter's Lettuce Salad, which we all were pleased, as it's one of our family's "favorite" salads. A holiday just wouldn't be complete without this salad at the dinner table.
