It's days after Easter, but I'm just now getting around to posting about it. Before our daughter moved to Japan we would fly up to D.C. to spend Easter with her. Now we're on our own, just us and the cat. But I still dye eggs and devil them for Easter lunch. We've had lamb fairly recently so we opted for prime rib. I bought a rib steak more than 2 inches thick and had to Google how to cook it. But it was simple, a quick sear and finish off in the oven. It was so good, almost melt in your mouth. Of course I didn't remember to take any pictures. We finished with strawberries, ice cream and whipped cream.
It rained most of the day, we got more than 2 inches so things are a bit soggy around here, but so pretty and spring like.
Neighbors have Dogwood trees that are blooming and I love them. But we've brought 2 Dogwoods home and though we tried they both died so we just have to admire our neighbors. The Wisteria is blooming too and if there is anything more southern I don't know what it is. We have it growing up our trees and draped over the garden wall.
Mac is busy transplanting Bell peppers and tomatoes out into the garden. He also brought home some cuttings from plants in Florida, a banana tree among other things. Yesterday we ate the first Fava (Broad) Beans from the garden and had lettuce from the greenhouse. So good to eat what you've grown yourself.
Our electricity went off for about a half hour this morning so I'm behind on everything, so off I go, running to catch up.
