Easter Lunch

Happy Easter!! I hope everyone had a great day. We had a marvelous lunch at my mom's house, but the weather was just not spring-like. It was sunny, but the temp barely hit 50 degrees.

My mom dyed some hard boiled eggs in fun, festive colors:


She also made her absolutely delicious potato salad:


I just love this simple potato salad. I've never made her recipe because I know I couldn't do it justice.


I made deviled eggs:


... keeping it simple with mayo, yellow mustard, salt and pepper with a dash of paprika on top for color:


Mom also roasted some asparagus in the oven with just oil, salt and pepper:


... and heated up some ham and two kinds of kielbasa:


The larger piece was slightly smoky and spicy. We also had some rye bread with butter:


The dining room table all laid out for the feast:


My plate with a little bit of everything:


Mom also made a lemon cheesecake:


... topped with fresh raspberries and served atop fresh raspberry sauce:


It was a delicious lunch and the perfect way to welcome in spring, even if Mother Nature didn't cooperate in the weather department.
Pin It!

    Everything looks AMAZING...especially your mom's lemon cheesecake! Do you think she'd mind passing on the recipe? : )

    Thanks!
