Easter Sunday: Food, Friends & 3 Exciting Varieties Of Eastern European Eggs

April 2, 2013

We had an amazing Easter Sunday that resulted in five very stuffed people, lots of laughing, some exciting “Easter confessions”—a thrilling new tradition that was born out of nowhere, and finally, a dessert fit for kings and queens. I had fun setting up the table with so much fanfare (AKA Polish Easter eggs) that the food didn’t actually fit.

Raffa took out his hand-painted Romanian Easter eggs for the occasion: real egg shells that have been drained through tiny holes in the bottom. Impressive! Naturally I dropped one, and R almost had a heart attack. Luckily, it didn’t break!

And because we didn’t have enough Eastern European Easter action going on, we decided to whip up some DIY Ukrainian Easter eggs as well. These were super fun, quick, and gratifying to make. They were pre-printed sleeves that you simply dip in boiling water for a few seconds.

You see? “Without the work!”

And we couldn’t let Easter slide by without decorating our own eggs, classic PAAS style.

Food! Dinner included green bean & mushroom casserole, breaded tilapia, mashed potatoes, a big epic salad and sauteed asparagus. Raffa and I split the menu and prepared a few things each. I don’t usually cook, so it’s a huge deal for me. I’m way more comfortable on decorating duty, but I think I’ll experiment more with food-stuff in the future. ;}







Mmmm, dessert. I ate way more of these than I am prepared to admit on the internet. 


Finally, my Easter Sunday outfit: the floral blazer (a replacement for the better-than-this-one blazer that I lost on my birthday last October), some NEUW light-wash jeans, a simple tank and an off-white trapeze coat. Pink moccasins are now a staple of my daily uniform, even if it gets cold out again. I am so over socks.

Wow, that was a long post. Thanks for sticking around! I hope your week is off to a productive, creative, exciting start. Or at least one of those three.
