“This is the South, and we’re proud of our crazy people. We don’t hide them up in the attic.We bring ‘em right down to the living room and show ‘em off. No one in the South ever asks if you have crazy people in your family. They just ask what side they’re on.” —Designing Women
This is so true! In the Veggie+Vore Household, the crazy people are on my side. And I love them. We might be semi-conventional with our Easter food…
…But our activities are a different matter entirely.
This weekend, my aunt was in town, so we got together to celebrate. As usual, there was a spread to feed at least 5X the number of guests. Lots of spring salads were in the mix–potato, greens with berries, pasta, chicken. The rest of the table was filled with pimento cheese, ham, deviled eggs, shrimp, cheesy bread and on and on. Seriously, it’s ridiculous the amount of food we always prep relative to the number people. Note to Vore: ham sandwich for your lunch today, bud!
After the eating, we got to decorating. This year’s theme was “Peep-le.” Your mission was to decorate a Peep showing your personality. Below, you can see a hula skirt and a mohawk. (The mohawk came from my mom, which makes it all the more hilarious.) Then we attached them to bottle rockets and launched them. Totally normal, right?
Now on to the VeggieVore contributions. We brought Fluff-N-Stuff (recipe coming!) and cookie ice cream sandwiches.
Your next mission is to prep the ice cream and get it chilling in the freezer. Let it set about 1/2 way.This is a delicate point…too soft and your filling will run all over the place. Too solid and you’ll have a hard time scooping. Transfer your sandwiches to the freezer and let them get super hard–at least two hours. Then pull them out and tempt your crazy family. Happy Easter!
