Scrabble and Hot Cross Buns

We hosted an Easter afternoon with Jim’s family on Sunday. Preparations included rounding up all the special dinner and service ware. The next house will have a built in glassware wall, yes, I typed WALL. I like to make tablescapes just like my Mom does.

We have a several generations of glassware from both sides of the families. China from  my Grandma G, serving ware that has been passed down, glasses from a sister (and we used all of them!).

Bunny butt treat bags ensured candy got taken out of the house but just as much candy stayed with us. Cotton tails were on the backsides of the bags.

My first hot cross buns turned out delicious. I’ll be substituting rye flour in my next batch and taste testing with my Dad. He misses the raisin rye from the Dunnsville bakery. I think this is a similar recipe.

My nephew Travis shares his brown eggs for fresh from the farm goodness. His eggs are the extra large brown ones. I dyed the others from store bought white eggs (don’t tell Travis!) with either pickled beet juice or spinach and red onion skin dyed water. Pretty!

Nancy brought a festive dessert. Nice ending to a home baked meal.

After another Scrabble game, our afternoon was up. Jim and I tidied up while our guests drove back to their homes. Thanks for visiting!

P.S. I did not take a photo of my plate with all the courses. We had honey glazed ham, green bean casserole, lettuce salad, twice baked potatoes, pickled beets, hot cross buns, regular buns and champagne. Yum!
