How funny is Ms. Baggs, she refused to join us for our Sunday doings. I think she had a prior engagement with another group of friends. Maybe she'll fill us in on Monday.
Well we are in process of making a nice dinner for Sweet Man when he gets home from work around 4pm. We're having baked ham, pineapple casserole from (Cordelia's Cauldron), homemade rolls, the necessary green vegetable of the season aspergrass as Shelley called it when she was little, and deviled eggs. I hate to call them that. They should be called, hmmmmmmm, creamed eggs on the half shell, nah, smashed yellows in a white half, nah. Okay you know what I mean. And then we will have the non traditional brownies with sugar daisies on top.
My Mom would always serve ham, broccoli/pea casserole, scalloped potatoes and angel food cake with green coconut on top and jelly beans. Thing was my Mom sorta got to be worse and worse with age when it came to cooking and refused to let any of us take over the cooking so...............besides the ham, well we don't do it the traditional way cuz as her hair got grayer.....so did the food, especially the scalloped potatoes.
We spent the morning enjoying each other and blessing each other with Cascarones, which are confetti filled eggs. The eggs are blown out and the end is then filled with confetti, tape is applied to the end and there ya go. The blessing part comes when you wish something good for the person as you smash the egg on top of their heads. What a big ole mess, I love it. We will be finding confetti dots for months to come.
Luckily, the wind was blowing so we blessed the neighborhood too. I was especially thrilled that the nasty cigar smoking neighbor next door had his garage door open and the wind was taking the mess his way.....payback is so lovely.
