Easter Sunday

What is brunch without sweet tea? Well, I guess if you are above the Mason-Dixon, it's brunch. But where we come from, it aint worth the powder to blow it to hell (or so they say...). I wanted some kind of fruit flavored tea for Easter brunch. We had a quart of strawberries in the freezer and a plethora of teas in the pantry. I added 5 bags of Tazo Awake tea, which is a plain black tea with a fancy name, to a pot of boiling water. I added about 3 1/2T sugar and let it steep for a few minutes. Once the color looked good, I added the thawed (almost) strawberries and let them sit for about 10 minutes or so, stirring occasionally. Since the strawberries had been frozen for a while, and then dyed brown from the tea (read: nasty-looking), I made the decision to take them out. Plus, we didn't want our tea to taste like cough medicine (sorry, Josh). Bam. Sweet Strawberry Black Tea.

I don't have any pictures of tea to show you, but here is a photoessay of our Easter Brunch:

British recipe = headache 

Elizabeth's creative interpretation of the recipe I gave her

...turned out to be pretty tasty

we're busy

I'm sorry to report it looked a lot better than it tasted. But it did give me some ideas for next time.

"Christos Anesti!"


THERE you are, Peter!

The afternoon was just what we wanted it to be: fun, delicious and relaxing. 

Next up: Sanne's Sweet Broccoli Slaw!



  1. that pastry looks so cute! and what the heck is that british thing?

  2. its the pastry thing! It has canadian bacon, chives, green onion, cream, eggs and nutmeg. Good in theory, but I think something got lost in translation.

  3. I like the tea idea...sounds really yummy. Everything looked so pretty.

  4. I'm so happy you guys had egg fights! I'm so proud...

  5. My first grade report card said "does not follow instructions well". Just saying.
