When the boys were little, we'd hide eggs on Easter eve and put together baskets loaded with fun. Some candy found it's way in but not too much. Cadbury eggs were always included and, for Stefan, a small box of Peeps. After a quick breakfast, the boys were off to check out their baskets. Hunting for eggs would wait until after church. During our Charleston years, we'd join the congregation for brunch after the service. There would be an egg hunt there as well. For the past few decades, we've have Easter brunch with our friends. I missed those dear faces this year but it was a joy to be with our younger son and his wife. All I had to do was sip coffee while Easter brunch was being prepared!
Happy-faced flowers lined up in buckets filled with
chocolate bunnies, sheep and baby chicks.
Stefan baked his favorite coconut cake from my recipe file. He remembered that I always used white bunnies but couldn't find them. I seem to remember that the original Peeps only came in white. I don't think anyone ate the Peeps but the cake was a big hit!!
