Good Afternoon & Happy Easter!-- I hope everyone has a lovely day, the weather is beautiful!  DD was here during the week, so today, it's just going to be a typical day for us, already went to the fish market to get some fresh fish for dinner.  Took a walk early this morning and this afternoon DH & I are going up to the club so I can practice my putting!  Oh, I had a wonderful Easter morning surprise (NOT!), I was making breakfast and I noticed there was water in the cabinet under the sink, we found a small leak coming from the garbage disposal and DH tried to fix the problem put with no luck, so I'll call the plumber tomorrow.  Luckily, it a very small leak and dosen't need immediate attention, it's Easter Sunday and I don't think I'd be able to get anyone to come anyway!

 

MM--Congratulations on your big news!!!!!

We had a great time at our DIL's parent's house. They have a huge covered outdoor patio and so had everything set up there as a buffet. There was so much food. We had a cupcake decorating contest. I didn't take pictures, but everyone got pretty creative.  It was fun. We got back late afternoon and have just relaxed out back. @viva923 , I hope you've got your washer set up and you're able to do your wash the way you like. @Hayfield , sorry to hear about your leak. Don't you hate when these things happen on holidays? Good luck! @JustJazzmom , I'm sure your Zoom call with you DGS was fun!

Good afternoon! We have a beautiful sunny day here. I wish I had @viva923  energy. My roses need some pruning. Maybe tomorrow.

 

I spent last evening rewriting a few madeleine cookie recipes. There was a classic madeleine recipe in the Sunday paper & I decided to compare mine with theirs. Mine wasn't too different. I did get an exact amount of butter to flour to prep the madeleine pans from the newspaper recipe. I'll be making a batch maybe next week. Depends on how fast we eat the bundt cake I made. 

I also found a better recipe to make chocolate hazelnut madeleines. Now that hazelnut flour is available, it's easier to make them instead of grinding hazelnuts beforehand. My recipe called for separating eggs & melting chocolate in a double boiler. This new recipe calls for 3 Tbsps. of cocoa powder. I also have hazelnut extract too if I decide to use it. 

A new nonstick 6 Cup bundt pan from Nordicware arrived today from Amazon. I decided to splurge on their gold anniversary version. Thst one has handles on each side. My older 6 Cup pan doesn't have handles.

 

I also bought a Wilton mini muffin pan that is nonstick & an extra large non stick baking sheet (21" X 15") -- also from Amazon. These might arrive on Saturday. I measured my oven and the storage drawer below so I know the tray will fit. 

Tonight it's more steamed asparagus with reheated stuffed shells. I'm also doing figs for the appetizer. 

Have a great Tuesday.

allergy season is in full bloom here and everything is covered in yellow/green pollen. thank goodness for antihistamines and Kleenex.

everything has been pretty quiet here. I've been doing a little spring cleaning too, but I agree with @JustJazzmom , I wish I had @viva923 's energy. I have to do things a little at a time.

I'm still dealing with sciatica ( heating pad, NSAIDs). I refuse to see a doctor about it because I would probably end up with a prescription for steroids and I never want to take steroids again unless it's a last resort. I'll just have to do the best I can and let it run it's course.

sending blessings to all.

here's a Sandersville, Ms. sunset.

have a peaceful evening, y'all.
