…was a first for us. We always have had Easter lunch or dinner and served lamb. This year our kids from across the mountains joined us for the weekend and had to get on the road earlier on Easter day to head home. We went to an early service and came home and started on brunch. We decided on Biscuits and gravy which was easy to have ready for 10 in a short amount of time. We used our electric skillet to make side eggs for anyone who wanted one or two.
The tablecloth and runner were purchased at HomeGoods.
We used shrink wraps for the eggs that I purchased at a Ukrainian market.
I bought the glasses that are tinted on their base in green and blue from Dollar Tree.
This is Seernaya Paska which is a sweet cheese spread made with cooked egg yolks, butter, cream, and sugar mixed well and then put in a mold with weight on top to force all the extra liquid out of it. This happens overnight in the fridge.
This is one from a couple of years ago that I made using a larger amount and larger mold.
The signs that the bunnies are holding are in Russian and they say Christ is Risen and He is risen indeed.
I used little blue and green egg cups for place cards and let each person take theirs home so each household took home a green cup and an aqua cup. I bought the egg cups from World Market. The napkins were a thrift store purchase a few years back. The pearl napkin rings were a Target clearance purchase from several years ago.
The Russian Easter Bread ready to go with our favorite toppings…
A nice layer of Seernaya Paska (Sweet Cheese Spread) on top of the Kulich/Paska (Russian Easter Bread) and then top it off with lightly sugared fresh strawberries. Delicious! And on the morning after this next picture shows my Easter Monday breakfast…
My next post will be all about the people we enjoyed this meal with.
Here in the Pacific Northwest we are enjoying some glorious sunshiny days! I will have no excuse not to mow the grass. It’s getting a little wild out there with dandelions! I’m feeling better, too, and using less tissues everyday. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods!
I’m linking up with Laura at Decor to Adore for Thoughts of Home #8.
