These two photos are from Easter 2003. We have always celebrated Easter, with dyed eggs and bunny-shaped bread, decorated by the boys, of course. We had bunny rolls decorated with raisins in 2003.
In 2006, Jon created our Easter Breakfast. Bunny-shaped pancakes with his own special topping. At age 8, this was his first food creation and very delicious and enjoyable. For my family, much more tasty than store bought candy. Here is his recipe.
Jon's Pancake Topping:
2 organic apples, diced (not peeled)
2 Tbl pure maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
1/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Place apples (and nuts) in bowl, sprinkle on spices and drizzle on maple syrup. Stir until all apple chunks are coated.
So much fun can be had without the sugar. Easter egg hunts always included special treats, little trinkets and coins, plus a few healthy foods such as little boxes of organic raisins and baggies of things like the chocolate energy chunks and sesame sticks.
If your Easter is a bit more sugary than this, be sure to get some chicken broth cooking on your stove and make some healing chicken soup to ward off infections next week. Refined sugar feeds germs and lowers the immune system - have you noticed someone always seems to get sick after a holiday feast with sugary sweets?
Our Easter eggs come from our own chickens since we moved to the country. And sometimes a hen decides to sit on some eggs. One of our chickens went broody last spring and she hatched a brood of baby chicks under the gazebo!
May you be blessed abundantly this Easter 2013.
