Day Lilies

Hi! I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays! Easter here at the beach turned out pretty nice! Look at these waves...


The fog stayed away and the thunderstorms held off til nighttime. A few daring souls even took their sand chairs down to the shore (bbbrrrr!)... 
My grocery store had these stunning lilies! Not at all my usual Easter flower, I am drawn to blue hyacinths and white tulips...But I think because Easter was so late, the lilies are in season.....


It was hard to choose, but very inexpensive, so I went with two bright bunches...


Casual day , mostly beach walking and relaxing....


For Easter supper, a spring salad of baby lettuce-greens, pears, walnuts, gorgonzola, with an apple-vinegar dressing. I  made brisket because the butcher stocks it for Passover and it makes such a nice pot roast casserole. With Hungarian egg noodles made with caraway and a sour cream....


Asparagus and brussel sprouts...made crispy cooked, in a smidge of olive oil.


And earlier, for what my Cape Cod parents called cocktail time---actually after beach hike snack time!--- I did  a big plate of devilled eggs (horseradish, blue cheese, capers, a bit of mayo mixed with the mashed up yolks for the stuffing...) and my usual cheeses and crackers...Sadly I couldn't find my special egg platter with the indentations for the eggs!? Something to look for at the flea markets in the weeks ahead....


Dessert was miniature lemon tarts, each with a couple of little pastel Cadbury chocolate eggs on the top---to make them look like tiny Easter nests.

Now I'm back to work on hearts and other fun things for Mothers Day gifts, weddings, teacher-hostess gifts...I'll be sharing them soon.


love
