Prepping for Easter Weekend

This weekend will be a busy one. I love Easter though, so I'm OK with it. Saturday we are having an Easter Egg Hunt at Carl's Aunt's house. I offered to coordinate the menu which includes bringing a few things.

Easter Egg Hung Menu:
  • Cherry Chicken Salad on Croissants
  • Egg Salad
  • Deviled Eggs
  • Vegetable Tray
  • Fruit Tray
  • Lemon Poppyseed Muffins
  • Cupcakes

I'm only on the hook for the Cherry Chicken Salad, Croissants and Lemon Poppyseed Muffins, but Sunday gets a touch more complicated. We are having a very similar menu, but I'm in charge of more.

Sunday Brunch:
Cherry Chicken Salad on Croissants
Egg Salad
Fruit Tray
Vegetable Tray
Lemon Poppyseed Muffins
Simple Punch

Lastly, we'll head to my parents' house for dinner. Since we'll arrive later, I volunteered a dessert rather than an appetizer.

Easter Dinner:
Lattice Top Classic Apple Pie

I really wanted to also make a strawberry rhubarb pie but rhubarb isn't in season yet. Boo. As soon as I see it at the store, I'm making one gosh darn-it!

I've got my work cut out for me the next few days, but by breaking it up, it makes it seem less daunting. I started on my tasks tonight and I'm already pooped. C'mon self! You can make it!
