Progressive Easter

April 24, 2011

I thought the clouds would break and we would have a sun-filled Easter Sunday, but sadly no.

Like I said in my previous post, our Easter service started at 11 p.m. Saturday night so we ccould celebrate Christ’s resurrection as soon at Easter Sunday got underway (midnight)!

By 9 p.m. last night (Saturday), I was dragging and knew it was going to be very difficult to stay away! After our 2.5 hour service, I finally crawled into bed around 2 a.m. last night/this morning! Yet, my internal clock woke me up at 6:30 a.m. this morning. I figure I’ll just go to bed early tonight. πŸ˜•

I had a light breakfast because I knew we would be heading to my in-law’s church for an Easter brunch in a few hours.

A Green Monster because I knew I wouldn’t be getting many veggies today!

I also toasted half of a bagel and spread a little peanut butter on it. I love crunchy peanut butter. I love crunchy foods to begin with!

Today turned into a progressive Easter celebration.

Meal #2: Brunch at my in-law’s church

biscuits and gravy + eggs + ham + hash browns

It was a treat for me to have biscuits and gravy. Usually I would shy away from something like this, but I guess today I felt like I would splurge a little!

I also had some fruit (canned unfortunately) + orange juice.

I have not had orange juice (or actually any juice) in such a long time that the juice tasted extremely sweet, and I didn’t even like it.

After the brunch, we attended a worship service at my in-law’s church.

During the next couple of hours, I spent my time prepping for the week and running a couple of errands.

Meal #3: Dinner at the church Craig and I attend.

We attend a church with a high population of Greeks, so there was a lot of Greek foods.

lamb soup, orzo, asparagus, rice, chicken, potatoes, and sweet breads

I also went back for a small plate of dessert samples.

Once again this weekend has disappeared, and it is time to go to bed to get some rest.

I hope your weekend was a good one! πŸ™‚

    1. I woke up more tired then I was yesterday waking up at 4:30 ha. Your meals look delicious and that is a great idea about the Green monsters when you know you aren’t getting enough veggies.

    1. The Greek dinner looks delicious! Greek food is the best! What type of church do you attend? I go to a nondenom- but love to go to traditional services over the holidays.

      Hope you have a good week- I couldn;t agree more- Easter weekend flew by!

      1. I like Greek food, but I don’t like that every dish is covered in oil!

        We attend a Greek Orthodox church.
