Easter was a quiet day for us. Although I still managed to overcook a key lime pie. I put the pie in the oven, checked the time and thought, I have 30 minutes. So I went to do some more research on the computer for a project. Poof! One hour later I thought about the pie. So that one went in the garbage and I went to the store to get the ingredients for another key lime pie. This time while I waited for the pie to cook, I did a bit of ironing. No way I'll get so distracted by ironing that I'll forget about the pie.

We went to Mike and Betsy's for Easter dinner. She made a wonderful dinner of lamb chops, peas, baby carrots and roasted potatoes but it wasn't just lamb chops, peas, carrots and potatoes. She added a special touch to each dish. The weather was so nice that we sat outside on the terrace. It is such a blessing to have a meal with the family. Just wish Doug and Susan and their boys could have been with us.

In case you are wondering, going around the table from the guy in the shorts, Mike, Gary, Ned, Will, Jack (who probably grew 1/4 inch while we were having dinner) and the marvelous cook, Betsy.

Lordy, woman, buy a kitchen timer!

Gotta second Felipe. I wouldn't dream of baking without a timer. I'm too easily sidetracked.

Thank you for your kind words Billie. It was fun eating outside - we don't get to do that as often as others here in Houston. It helps too that we have such a fun family to be around. Good company is always the best ingredient!
