Hello there! I hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend with friends and/or family. Saturday I ran my usual weekly errands, made a trip to the local Gluten free/vegan bakery for Easter treats, and then had a lazy relaxing afternoon with Daniel. This week’s menu:
- Monday: Shrimp Stir Fry
- Tuesday: Turkey Burgers, roasted sweet potatoes, and veggies
- Wednesday: Avocado Toast with tomatoes and fried eggs (I found normal calorie/normal tasting GF bread!)
- Thursday: Brown Rice pasta with veggies
- Friday: Black bean tacos guacamole and tortilla chips
After church on Sunday, a bunch of my family members went to my parent’s house for Easter lunch. It was so nice to see everyone because I don’t get to see all of them that often.
I didn’t get a lot of pictures because I was just enjoying the time with everyone, which I think is best sometimes. I know I often get obsessed with checking my phone and having it out all of the time, so it’s nice to have a break from it sometimes.
For lunch, my dad grilled some BBQ chicken and my mom baked a ham. Everyone brought different sides to share and we ended up having quite a spread! I loaded up with some salad, fruit, BBQ chicken, a deviled egg, and a few tortilla chips with hummus.
For dessert, my niece and I had some of the vegan bakery cupcakes I got on Saturday. She’s allergic to eggs and I can’t have gluten, so it was a perfect combo! She had a vanilla cupcake and I had a chocolate…sooo good! 🙂 I enjoyed it with a cup of coffee and she enjoyed hers with a sippy cup of milk haha!
It was nice having one location to go to on Easter and not have to jump around to multiple family gatherings. I love seeing Daniel’s family and I love seeing my family, but it can get really tiring to fit everyone in for one day. Couples out there, if you have family close by, how do you decide who to go to for the holidays? I find it to be a hard balance! I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
Was your Easter low key or busy?
