Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!
We did! On Friday Evening, we ate out with Kevin's family,
and on Sunday, after an amazing Worship Service celebrating Resurrection Day,
I hosted my side of the family at our home for lunch.
Ashley was home for a long weekend, and we had nieces and nephews around for four days.
I love cooking for the family! And one simple recipe I fixed this weekend,
was a "5 Cup Fruit Salad," also known as Ambrosia Salad.
This salad has been around forever, but I never tire of the refreshing treat!
Doesn't "5 Cup Salad," look so Spring'y!
A simple tip...
The recipe calls for 1 cup each of mandarin oranges and pineapple chunks.
I don't measure an exact cup, but just go with a 15 oz. can of mandarin oranges and a 20 oz. can of pineapple tidbits. Don't know how close they come to a cup once drained, but the amount works well.
My daughter, Ashley, made Peeps Cupcakes and I threw Nest Haystacks together.
Haystacks were a favorite of our family when I was growing up, mom made them often.
Never thought of making them into nest until, of course, I saw them on Pinterest! :)
1 bag of Butterscotch Morsels
1 bag of Chinese Chow Mein Noodles
Melt Butterscotch morsels in the microwave, mix in noodles, and form nests. Add candy eggs.
(Tip: Make in small quantities, so that the mixture doesn't try too much before you make all the nests.)
On another note, hope you all are enjoying the first day of April...
It finally feels like Spring! :)
