SmashAsh gracefully hosted Easter supper and put out a righteous southern spread ... baked ham, fried okra, squash and tomato casserole (a Cheek fave!), creamed corn, baked sweet potatoes, and scalloped taters brought by JackolAsh. Young KK slaved 'til the wee hours over a layerlicious yellow cake with yummy fudge icing - effort much appreciated. The kids' Easter baskets were filled with peeps of many colors - SmashAsh was particularly pleased to have found purple ones this year.
Her urchins struck poses for this year's Easter photos - such 'tudes! You'd never know they were all goosebumply - real troopers for the family photo cause.
SmashAsh's brood are quite photogenic. Their spring famdamily photos were snapped last Easter in the back yard chez Swede - and dang, these urchins are cute.
Easter weekend was quite chilly in Atlanta - the last gasp of winter found many with their grump on, but it was a serendipitous thang chez Cheek. It afforded wonderful fires Friday night for dinner with Kimplicated, and again last night for just me and the not so wee chats.
Thought I'd retired the hot cocoa for the season as well, but the free trade stuff from Trader Joe's came back out of the cupboard - how fortunate that a bit o' Redi Whip was still in the fridge! Ah, quaffing cocoa by the fire, catching up with peeps southern and Canuckian, chillin' with the kitties. A fine Easter Sunday's night.
