Easter DinnerPosted: April 8, 2012
Hello, everyone….happy [late] Easter Sunday!
We ate well today, that’s for sure. We had DT’s mum over for an early Easter dinner, and if I do say so myself, we rocked the menu out. We feasted.
DT made bbq ribs for him and his mom.
For a side dish, we made DT’s Grandma Roberta’s pea salad. We’ve never made this recipe, but saw it in her cookbook and both said YUM.
The red pepper we had was a little soft to use raw, so I used a green one instead. It would have been so much more colorful with the red, but oh well. Next time. And there definitely will be a next time!
So delicious, and so simple! A fresh, springy salad to complement the carby-next-side-to-come.
The second side was artichoke bread – baked to ooey-gooey perfection. I just love Costco’s art dip….it made this so easy!
The loaf was wrapped up in foil and tossed in the oven to bake with the ribs….low and slow.
45 minutes later, at 275 degrees….
I’m fairly certain I ate half the loaf….ahhhhhhhhhhhhYUM!!
The ribs came out of the oven after six hours of heat:
I thought I would grill a veggie burger as my “main dish.” Umm, no. Not necessary today. My plate was pretty well filled with goodness (and second helpings):
More would have been pure gluttony.
Meanwhile, the kids enjoyed their Easter hot dogs in the backyard….
Mamma Susan brought a key lime pie from Kowalski’s for dessert – which we all politely declined immediately after the meal. Our stomachs were bursting.
I forgot to take a picture of the whole, luscious pie before cutting a slice for Susan to-go.
No matter….this pie is pretty and GOOD (I helped polish off Sam and Henry’s slices from their goodnight snacks). You know my feelings about key lime pie, it won’t last long in this house. 🙂
I’ve grown roots in this chair and continue to digest. Oyyy!
Have a great evening!
