We had the nicests guests at our house this year for Easter...but they didn't help with the dishes.
They are a bit hard to see but those are the first quail we have seen in our yard. They moved like they own the place though so I assume they have been here before. To the left are some of the pots of fresh herbs I am growing. I have a couple varieties of oregano, mint, chives, garlic chives (although our orange cat ate most of them before I had a chance to plant them), and rosemary. I am hoping to plant some dill and other herbs this weekend.
For Easter dinner I made a Martha Stewart recipe 60 clove garlic chicken. I added shitake mushrooms and carrots when I roasted the chicken. I also made small artichokes with tarragon butter, and a toasted baguette with dill and coarsly ground salt.
I also made a simple apple cake that I served with a mango sauce and fresh strawberries.
Kalli is a little over 3 months old and as you can see from the photo she likes to help my other blue break up sticks.
