I have an appointment with my daughter for the hairdresser tomorrow. I will find out then if she is cooking dinner at all. Or is it going to be a pick, pick, pick, day. She may get invited to one of her SILs home. In that case I will gladly stay home. I no longer celebrate holidays.

But Spring is here, so that means no more heavy hot meals. Potato, macaroni salads, foods that can sit in the fridge and some taken now, some later if and when we get hungry. Oh tuna salad for Pirate. Light foods.

I really just want to stay home and vegetate all day.

We completed our Easter shopping today with a trip to Costco, one big box store and a neighborhood market. There will be 7 adults and two munchkins for dinner. (We bought other groceries too as we will have the grands all next week while their parents are on vacation.)

Easter menu is:
Appies , I forget already.

Spiral sliced ham
fresh pineapple
cheesy scalloped taters
Brussel sprouts
green beans
Salad
frozen bread dough balls to make semi homemade bread rolls
Pineapple upside down cake + one more dessert Jr's are bringing.

If my daughter isn't cooking, then I am coming to your house for the cheesy tater tots.

I found this last week and would like to make it for them to try and
then share the recipe if they like it.
The rest of the menu is up in the air right now.
I started to prep some things for easy assembly tomorrow.

I "riced" a head of Cauliflower in my FP, WAY cheaper than buying a bag of already riced cauliflower.
It took all of my upper body strength to squeeze out most of the water, PHEW!

I got a cup and a half of cauliflower juice!
DH came back from hanging out with his buddy and walks in the door..."PEE-YOU!! What the heck is that smell?! That's AWFUL!!"

Here is a picture of my pressure cooker stuffed artichoke. So fast and easy to cook in the IP.



Sorry no pictures of the main course. Everyone wanted to eat.

I didn't get to the cheesecake last night so I made it today. It will be chilled and topped tomorrow.

Here is a picture of my un-topped pressure cooker cheesecake.
Will update finished cake picture tomorrow. I have never had a pressure cooker cheesecake. Can't wait to try it.

Gosh, I haven't had a devilled egg since the 1970s (and that was made with my mother's 1950s recipe)!! You've tempted me to make some.
