Saturday when we went shopping, I was showing my caregiver some of the interesting places where I shop in Seattle/Bellevue. We stopped first at World Market where I can get some of the ethnic foods I dearly love. While there I spotted some lovely square lunch plates. I chose the soft gray color which was fifty percent off. It was just perfect for my Easter dinner. I didn't get too much to eat because the plate was small, but I had a bit of everything.
On the way home, I had my caregiver duck in to Tacoma Boys Market to pick up spinach I had forgotten, for my Easter Salad. She picked up spinach that had mint mixed in. I've never seen this before, and I didn't realize the mint was there. I made up the salad with cherry tomatoes, avocado, fresh mushrooms, the spinach mix and some glazed walnut pieces. The salad was terrific, and was the perfect accompaniment for the lamb roast. That is the first time I have used lamb for anything, but the stew my mother made. I had Kabocha squash baked, Asparagus cooked for 3 minutes in the microwave, and chunky mashed potatoes, (my daughter did the potatoes, taught me something new). We had a special cake filled with Strawberry Rhubarb sauce and fresh strawberries and topped with Seven Minute Frosting. The meal was delicious and great for the holiday. In the future I will use that Spinach/Mint mix for many salads.
I hope you all had a nice Easter. How many people had deviled eggs? We didn't because my grandsons are now to old to color eggs. No more Easter Egg Hunts with a silly bunny that keeps hiding eggs where we already found them, (makes the hunt last longer).
