Easter Eve Morning Moon

Easter Eve......I guess that is what you would call it.....the day before Easter.  But whatever the day is called, it is pretty cold outside, 21 degrees at 7:20am.  As I stood out on the back porch of our home watching my husband starting up the tractor to go out and fertilize the fields, I noticed the moon peeking through the branches of our crab apple tree.  So pretty.
On Wednesday night as I was turning off the lights to go to bed, I noticed a little glow in the dining room.  When I looked out the window, the moon was so big and bright.
It would be nice to have a camera where I could get some great moon photos.  Although I like seeing the moon and it's not often that I see a moon that is spectacular, I guess I can live without the expensive camera, right?!
According to three weather reports, today is supposed to warm up to at least 36 degrees by noon.  Noon is the magical time on this day......it is the time when my little grandson will be here hunting eggs at our local tourist park.  He turned three in January so I think he will really have fun hunting eggs this year.  Hunting eggs in our little town is the greatest.....there is no shortage of eggs.....each child walks away with a basket full.  F.U.N. for the kids, parents, and GRANDPARENTS.

Pineapple Casserole

IT'S A KEEPER.............  This past Tuesday, I stumbled across this recipe for pineapple casserole.
My thoughts were that this would probably go really good with a ham steak we had in the freezer.  My thoughts were right, we had this casserole tonight with the ham steak and green beans on the side. 
I didn't think quick enough to get a picture of my plate serving before devouring it so you get second best......a serving all by itself on a plate. 
This recipe would really go good with your Easter meal.  Really, try it....it's good!
