Yesterday I wrote about fun with deviled eggs for Easter. What with shelling out dough for eggs, Easter candy, baskets, grass, chocolate and lily corsages, it’s getting to be a bit of a chore. Add to that, glazing a ham, opening a can of pineapple rings, making tater salad and whipping up a few pitchers of Easter margaritas and I’m exhausted. Plus I’m sick of having already celebrated Christmas, New Year’s Boxer Day, Chinese New Year, Groundhog Day, Mardi Gras, Valentine’s Day and April Fools over the past four months.
So this year, my recipe for an enjoyable stress-free Easter is a simple one.
Wake up Sunday morning, hunt around for Easter baskets, get the whole crew dressed up, attend church and take the gang out to Easter brunch. Let someone else do the cooking and wait on you and clean up the mess. It may be pricey, but it’s worth it. I think if I get back early enough I may head out and play a round of Easter golf.
Don’t be a basket case this Easter and don’t pull out your hare fretting about it. Relax. Scroll down through the list and see what a laid-back Easter is all about.
Happy Easter everybody.
