Would you like ham and scalloped potatoes? I asked my husband a few days prior to Easter Sunday.
Ham? Asking with his nose a little turned up.
Then I suggested Or we could do roast chicken and scalloped potatoes, what do you think?
Well, ham is fine I guess. Most indecisive husband award goes to…
And so Easter Sunday rolled around. We were feeling a little lazy. I headed out on my walk with Alfie, Nicole (my 10 month pregnant neighbour!) and her pooch, who Alfie hates. We talked about what our Easter traditions were, and had a little chat. It was getting quite warm out so after the walk instead of going on my weekly run together with my husband, I decided to run 1.79 miles on the treadmill while he snoozed on the couch for a bit.
When I came back home, I noticed he was awake asking me when we’re going to head out for our run together. You know when you’re just in the mood to run and you need to get out there otherwise it probably wouldn’t happen later? That’s what I did. He asked me if I’d like to go again, and to be honest – I really didn’t want to. But as soon as he said he wanted company for half of his run, I decided to get off my butt and go for another run.
My husband and I prefer to run right before the sun sets, so it’s cooler outside. And before that had to happen, we needed to get some groceries for our Easter dinner. I’m surprised the stores were open, then again my husband didn’t get Good Friday, nor Easter Monday off work.
We went to the grocery store and seriously could not pass up the pre-cooked rotisserie chicken fr $4.94. In Canada, I swear they’re at least nine bucks. So that was our easter dinner plan. Clearly I enjoyed taking photos of my shoes/pants on Sunday. I’m obsessed with these black sneakers, they’re from Target by the way!
In the afternoon, I’m not entirely sure how – but we ran out of time and things got a bit hectic. As per usual. I don’t let that bother me any more. But, we took Alfie out and went on a 6km run together. It was probably one of the best runs of my year so far. I didn’t feel winded, nor did anything hurt. I blame it on the warm-up that I did on the treadmill a few hours prior. Guess that was pretty good for me!
Once we came home, I had to head over to Baskin Robbins because I placed a telephone order for a bunny ice cream cake a couple of hours prior, and it was ready for pick-up. Baskin Robbins seriously does the cutest cakes for any occasion. We picked it up just in the nick of time to have for our Easter dessert.
After everything got settled away, I made the veggies to go with the roast chicken we picked up prior. I love feasting on special occasions, so I did not disappoint delivering a full plate of food to the table. Check out all the yummy goodness I made! I like to pat myself on the back. I picked up a dark chocolate Lindt bunny for my husband, and a milk chocolate one for myself. World Market was having a crazy good sale a couple of weeks ago leading up to Easter and some of the stuff was 50% off! I refrained on buying all the cute bunny items, and only bought two chocolate ones for ourselves.
Of course, we dug into the cake immediately after. My husband was such a stindge cutting the cake. Half a piece for the both of us? You gotta be kiddin’ me! Slice another piece off for us b’y. With the Baskin Robbins bunny roll cake, you could choose from 3 different flavours of ice cream in the middle: vanilla,mint chocolate chip, or chocolate chip. I chose the latter — it was pretty amazing. Technically this cake serves 6-8 people, but we aren’t sharing!
