Easter Decorations

I decided it was time to get in the mood for spring and Easter after having incredible springtime weather last week.  We had several days in the high 60's. I worked in the yard a couple of days and managed to put up a few decorations.

I decided it's time to put away the soup recipes and get out the salad recipes.  I love to make salads this time of year. I have already posted my strawberry salad recipe so this is another one of my favorites.

Craisin  Salad

2 butter head of lettuce                 crumbled blue cheese
1 red leaf lettuce                              4 green onions
1 cup toasted pecans                       1 pkg. craisins
2 apples peeled and chopped


3/4 cup sugar
1 tbs. onion juice
1 tbs. dry mustard
1 cup salad oil
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tbs. poppy seeds
1/3 cup vinegar

Mix all the ingredients of the dressing and mix on low for 1 minute.  Pour over salad just before serving and toss.


Do you ever feel like days are not long enough?  I wish that days were about 5 hours longer.  It seems just when it is time to get ready for bed I wish that I still had about 4-5 hours of the day left.  I know that I could stay up  for another 4-5 hours but then I would only get a couple of hours of sleep before I had to get up and go to work.  I have decided though that if I had never got into reading blogs I could get alot more done in a day!!

We went to the home and garden show yesterday and bought a few items to make our own sushi.  Just after a couple of rolls, Mark and Jed were looking like a couple of pros!!! We will definitely be doing this again.
