Well now that it's been two weeks since Easter, I guess it's about time I write about it.
For the first time this year, we had Easter brunch instead of Easter dinner, and I have to say it was a fantastic idea. I was responsible for bringing two things, so I made bacon wrapped asparagus and a french toast casserole. Typically I do a practice run before bringing something to a crowd, because while I'm definitely improving in the cooking department, things can still be a little dicey when I try a new recipe. But I threw caution to the wind for my Easter contributions and made them for the first time, and it was a huge success. The only mistake I made was "accidentally" doubling the butter in the french toast casserole, and I have to say, it wasn't a bad thing.
Also, the cutest baby in all the land came to spend her first Easter in Pennsylvania and despite all the candy my parents bought, I think she was the sweetest thing about Easter.
Emily was home from college for the weekend. My mom had the day off Monday and planned to drive her back to PSU bright and early for her 10 am class, so I took the day off and joined in the fun.
And fun it was.
We left at 6:00, so by 9:30 my mom and I were at the point where we found everything, especially ourselves, completely hilarious, and Emily was at the point where she was ready to crawl out the car window at a red light.
We dropped Em off for her class and made plans to reconvene at her dorm at 11:15 so she get her luggage and load the car up with her winter clothes to send home.
Which meant my mom and I found ourselves with an hour to kill on our old college campus.
So we decided to walk around and take pictures at various Penn State landmarks and text them to Emily in class.
The creamery! My freshman year dorm! The student union! The library! Em's favorite study spot! The lion shrine!
We met back up with Emily after her class and she did a combo eye roll/grin about the pictures, so our plan was a total success.
I wonder if she will ask us for a ride back anytime soon.
