Happy Easter!

Lots of preparation going on around here for our family get together Sunday afternoon.  We are cooking two turkeys. I will cook one the normal way in the oven and Dan is going to cook the other one in his Oil-Less Infrared Turkey Fryer.
Normally we cook one big 24 lb. turkey in the oven for our get togethers. But this fryer won't hold a turkey that large. So, there will be two smaller turkeys. Hmmm...wonder which one will taste better? ;)  We will have about 25 people this year for Easter dinner.

Looking forward to Easter Sunday's church service, celebrating Christ's resurrection! I am so thankful that Jesus died for us, rose from the dead, and now we can have eternal life with Him! 

Thank You Lord! Easter Sunday at church is always wonderful celebrating with church family, special music, all the gorgeous flowers decorating the sanctuary and seeing all the kids in their cute outfits.

Easter candy, oh boy, it is a weakness of mine. I love it all. I was going to try not to overdo it this year. But, Dan and I went grocery shopping TOGETHER yesterday. He bought SO much candy! 

I LOVE Jellybeans.
 I told him we do NOT need that much!! Ha ha!  He justified it by telling me we were having lots of company and it is Easter after all! 

 Have a happy, blessed Easter!


  1. I've never tasted a turkey fried but I've heard it is really good.
    That candy looks great...know your guests will love nibbling on it.
    Happy Easter

  2. I have never heard of a turkey fryer before! you really do learn something new every day :O)

    you are going to be so busy, 25 guests?!!??!! I don't know how you do it. good luck!

    that's a lot of sweeties! I try to steer away from easter goodies, but I must admit that I scoffed an entire choccy egg earlier this week!

    Have a very happy Easter Pam. Ours couldn't be more of a contrast to yours, it's going to be very quiet!

  7. Hi Pam, what a lovely Easter Sunday you had! I love deep fried turkeys! and oh the candy looked so yummy! lol. Love and Hugs!

  8. Hi Pam! I've never heard of an oil-less fryer for a turkey- that sounds a lot healthier than the ones that use oil! Have you used it before? Interested in how it turned out... altho I do love the smell of a turkey roasting! :) (((Hugz)))
