It’s almost Easter, have you figured out your holiday plans yet?
Easter, traditionally, is one seriously omnivorous celebration. From dyeing to hunting eggs, to baskets full of chocolates and candies, to tables centered around a ham, it covers quite a few creatures in the animal kingdom. Stressing about what to eat? How to celebrate with children? Don’t worry, I’ve searched the web high and low and offer you my findings:
First for the menu, determined to explore and feature different blogs than those I highlighted in my St. Patty’s Round-up, I am excited to report I found so many amazing recipes while learning about a few new blogs. You definitely want to take a look for yourself:
And for my contribution to this Cyber Potluck I bring you my fresh fruit tart with vanilla pastry cream, the dessert I brought for last year’s Easter meal. It was well received.
This year I’m bringing Orange Pistachio Cinnamon Rolls, and cannot wait to share the recipe with you!
But, as I said, there is more to address as vegan parents. What about all the celebration around eggs? This year is Eden’s first year to join her cousins on an Egg hunt which happens on my parent’s farm, Fern Creek Farm. And while I appreciate her cousins are finding eggs from happy chicken, I needed an alternative for Eden. Therefore I picked up a bunch of plastic eggs and filled them with healthy, but slightly indulgent treats.
In each eggs she will find dehydrated raspberries, dried cherries, Amy’s Bunny Grahams, or dark chocolate covered raisins (although I think I’ve eaten a few of those).
I also had a lot of fun putting together her first Easter basket.
Stuffed inside that green frog is a bunny that I crocheted for her before she was born, a coloring book, bubbles, and a few homemade eggs shakers. I also bought The Velveteen Rabbit, a book she’s a bit too young for but I think I’ll start a tradition of reading her the book every year.
So this in my vegan Easter.
What about yours? Do you have any veg traditions? If so, please share!
