I’m admitting it, I was a total loser Mom this year when it came to Easter as the bunny failed to show up at our home. Shoot, I was a loser with Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day too…just couldn’t get it together this year. Thankfully Maisie didn’t miss out totally as she participated in an Easter egg hunt at school. It was a cold day here in Georgia but Maisie, her classmates and the other classes bundled up and had a good time gathering eggs. Oh and on Easter Sunday, I wasn’t feeling well and slept until 1PM. Maisie got up, got her breakfast and played happily not even remembering that it was Easter…until 3PM when she must have remembered and asked if the Easter bunny had come. Eammon and I looked at each other, made up a lame story and let her pick some candy treats from her candy drawer. She was happy and Easter was done. Maybe by Christmas I’ll have my act together again! (Above, Maisie and most of her classmates waiting for the egg hunt to begin.)
New and delicious recipe posted over on Cook Lisa Cook for one of my favorite take-out foods, Dan Dan Noodles. My version has all the wonderful flavors and spice of what we get at our favorite Szechuan restaurant but with a lot less calories and carbs as I used turkey in place of the pork and Shirataki noodles in place of wheat or rice noodles. The first time I made these Dan Dan Noodles Eammon thought I had stopped at our favorite place, that’s how authentic they taste.
