He is Risen, Indeed!

The family is coming over in about an hour, so just a quick note to wish you all a Happy Resurrection Sunday!

For fun, this year I made these:

Italian Sweet Bread with Easter Eggs in the middle.  I did a trial batch yesterday.  NO PHOTOS of that batch.  Today the yeast worked better, and I was more confident!

The recipe is easy, so let me know if you want me to send it your way.  OR, you can go get it from

I also made a German Potato Salad.  This is really yummy.  No photos though because no time!

4 potatoes
4 sliced bacon
1 Tbs all purpose flour
2 Tbs white sugar
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 cup chopped green onions
salt and pepper to taste

Boil potatoes in skins for about 15 minutes.  Drain, cool, peel if you want to, and chop.

Place bacon in a large, deep skillet.  Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown.  Drain, crumble and set aside.  Reserve bacon fat.

Add the flour, sugar, water and vinegar to skillet and cook in reserved bacon fat over medium heat until dressing is thick.

Add bacon, potatoes and green onions to skillet and stir until coated.  Cook until heated and season with salt and pepper.  Serve warm.

Enjoy your day!

From church this morning.  That handsome trumpet player is my son.

UPDATE:  Google (picasa) or Blogger or Apple (iPhone) is jerking me around and the video won't play.  My apologies.

Your son did a good job! I've seen the Easter Egg Bread things before, but I'm so scared of yeast that I don't think I would try to make them! Hope you had a good Easter!
He is risen! Alleluia!!

I have to admit that I skipped down to the recipe without reading thoroughly & I was MAJORLY confused. BACON in sweet bread? LOL Fortunately I figured it out :)

The video will not allow me to play it! This is upsetting since I have a rather soft spot for trumpet players.
