We also had potato salad, homemade rolls and bread, vegetable salad, jello fruit salad, and cake for desert. For dinner that evening, I took the hard boiled eggs and made them into egg salad sandwiches. We also had potato chips, pop corn, and finished off the cake for desert.
Easter Monday sort of got changed around. It was suppose to be at my parents, but got moved to Joseph and Martha's because they have more room. There were almost 400 people there with Joseph's family, my family and David's family. Now you see why we needed the room. Next year we hope to have it at our new house.
For dinner we had turkey, ham (one of our pigs slaughtered), and chicken, all sorts of salads, vegetables, bread, rolls, jams and jellies, peanut butter (homemade), cakes, and pies for deserts. Later in the afternoon, we had cookies and coffee or tea or milk. Martha set up the kitchen buffet style. So we filled up our plates and found a place to sit. As it was suppose to rain, they had tables, and TV trays in the house and on the porch-plus some tables with chairs set up in the barn.
After dinner as the ladies cleaned up the kitchen, then men went talking in one of the barns and the children played. When we got done cleaning, we ladies had tea and talked for a while. Some of the relatives we hadn't seen in a long time. Before we left, we all had a singing. We sang religious songs. It was hard getting everyone in the house, but Martha did it. We all had a very nice day.
We got home in time to milk the cows. Our dinner at home was left overs from the dinner that Martha sent home with us.
Hope You Had a Happy Easter.
Be With God,
I JUST TOOK THE SYSTEM OFF AND WE ARE BACK TO IF YOU COMMENT IT GOES DIRECTLY ON. I THINK I DELETED TWO COMMENTS BY ACCIDENT-DOREEN AND FIONALINA. IF I DID PLEASE PUT YOUR COMMENTS BACK ON. THAT MODERATE SYSTEM WAS FOR THE BIRDS. I WILL JUST HAVE TO BE VERY CAREFULL ABOUT SPAMS.
