For a week now, we have these baby turkeys in our yard. Since my MIL is cooking leg of lamb and ham, do you think these will be ready for Thanksgiving? just kidding! The kids were excited to see these turkeys. One morning, I was getting out of the garage when my daughter exclaimed "Mom, the turkeys are in the driveway, be careful!" I always see turkeys when driving around our area. Last week, a turkey crossed the freeway and I almost hit it. So why did the turkey cross the road? LOL
So it's candy time again. As usual, I bought some pencils and candies to put in the plastic eggs and for the Easter goodie bags the kids gave to their classmates. I love these Easter M&Ms, pastel colors are my favorite. I also like these Jelly Bellys although these aren't really good for your teeth. My dentist said it's better to give kids chocolates than other candies.
This is what I had for dinner these past week, seafood. In the Philippines, we don't eat any meat during the Holy Week and every Friday during Lent. Fried Crispy mackerel, fresh tomatoes and garlic rice is one yummy combination. I also watched the Ten Commandments with my kids last night. They have religion in school so they are familiar with the story although my daughter prefers the Veggie Tales versrion since it's funny.
For Easter this year, we're going to celebrate it in my MIL's house. Mom and dad are back from Florida and kids cannot wait to see them. I know my daughter A is excited, she asked me to print out her recent report card to show grammy. She gives the grandkids $5 for every 'A' and my daughter, as usual, got it in every subject. (Good job swinkie!) The kids will also do an egg hunt with their cousins in my in-law's backyard. I don't know how long we're going to be out there but I hope it's not too long. It is FREEZING this morning, it doesn't feel like spring. Before going to my in-laws though, we're going to a party in a Chinese restaurant where I'm going to see my BFF Mira and her family. It's our God daughter's 2nd birthday so that should be fun.
How do you celebrate Easter?
