Easter 2013

Oh, how I love Easter and the whole Holy Week experience.  The lows, then the highs.  It's the ultimate.

Well this year I finally was prepared enough to have a clean house and nice meal.  Plus I actually put out decorations.  I tried to force forsythia but it still hasn't bloomed!  Oh, well, next time I'll know better.

And I even colored eggs!  I dropped my laptop on the driveway and trashed it so I've been kind of lost.  I couldn't remember the "natural" way to color eggs so I just used vinegar and food coloring.  They came out weird, plus I only had brown eggs on hand.
 Below is a three-layer carrot cake, a Susan Branch recipe, on a Star of David platter.  It's very yummy.  I used the grater attachment on the food processor my sister bought me.  Wow, that thing is fantastic!  It used to take forever to grate the carrots with a grater, and I'd end up with bloody knuckles.
