BUT Easter isn't cancelled!!!!! The reason for the day NEEDS to be celebrated. We can fix our meals for ourselves - and maybe share with a lonely neighbor. (Call them and advise you are leaving dinner outside their door for them to pick-up).
Read your Bible and PRAY. Watch an Easter service on TV. Put on those fancy duds and feel good about yourself and look pretty for the day.
Dinner can be anything - it doesn't have to be the traditional Easter meal.
Set a pretty table and enjoy. Cut some pretty flowers from the yard and make a centerpiece.
THERE are MANY WAYS to make the day special!!!!!
Color some eggs - even if it is just you at home! They make us smile. You can use natural things to color. Beet juice, onion skins, black tea, grape juice, etc. Kool-Aid can be used. OR you can just use parkers and draw cute little goofy faces on your eggs! Have a little fun.
Dinner - can be anything.
Frittatas, crepes, roast and veggies, fried rice, lo-mein, lasagna, chicken, potato salad, coleslaw, deviled eggs, easy rolls, grill outside...…………. the list goes on and on.
I am making these this weekend! I haven't done them before - but have been told they taste much like old fashioned yeast rolls!!!!!!!!
Dessert can be fun - doesn't have to be fancy.
ANYTHING dipped in chocolate is great.
You can dip cookies, rice krispy treats, chunks of cakes, brownies, even potato chips in melted chocolate!
Use some canned fruit and make some sort of shortcake with a simple yellow cake mix or butter cake.
Bake little ice cream cone cakes. Place batter in flat bottom ice cream cones (in a muffin pan). Fill about 2/3 up and bake as you would cupcakes. Make pretty colored cupcakes.
Different doesn't mean canceled!
Get up and have a nice breakfast. Worship in your way. Fix a nice dinner and eat at the table, made to look pretty. Put on the pretty dress or outfit. Talk with your family and friends. Share some goodies with someone else.
YOU need to make the day a lovely celebration. The day is already SPECIAL!
