Anyone have any plans? Family, friends, a day off.
What are you doing?
Nothing special. We'll probably just crucify Santa Claus on a chocolate cross, you know, standard stuff.
I'm planning on brewing up a batch of beer.
In honor of Easter, I intend to add the sugar from a package or two of marshmallow peeps to my wort. The recipe calls for dextrose; yellow bunnies are just a different variation of processed sugar.
Being a Jew.
Twisting the nipples of my crucifix.
Nothing. At least that's what I thought. Now I think I may make one of those sweet Easter breads and invite friends over. Ham and eggs would be better, but I don't feel like cooking ham.
Day off? It's Sunday, only someone with a minimum wage loser job works Sundays.
Probably burn a cross in my front yard, write "move fags" on my garage door and call the police to report a hate crime.
I'll be hiding the vibrating egg where the sun don't shine.
Its just a long weekend really - here in the UK its from Thursday afternoon to Tuesday am ... for those in work, but as I am just retired its just another weekend. We will have some friends for dinner on Sunday. Must plan some menus,.
Weather is still freezing here, we cant even open the windows yet ... and it will be cold over weekend too.
I'd love some advice, fellow DLers. I was recently invited to an Easter pot-luck brunch in my apt building; it is specifically an "early" brunch - 11:00-1:00 PM (host has another obligation.)
Pot-luck. Have NO idea what to bring! Cold food, I'm told. Maybe 15 or so people.
Fruit salad? Bagels? ???? Help appreciated; TIA.
Not a goddamned thing.
Heading back over to Bennie's place. He's arranged an special Easter Parade (wink wink)of his fave altar boys. We'll all have a dip in the pool, and afterwards he wants another Sex and the City marathon while gorging ourselves on gelatto.
Oooh oooh what you know?
Oooh oooh what you know?
It's the Carmilita Ooh Ooh Show
A friend is letting my gf and me use her house in Incline Village (Lake Tahoe) for a long weekend. We're on the road now and should be there by 2am, we'll be there until Tuesday evening. No plans except sleeping in, reading, walking on the beach and hiking around Sand Harbor and the forest around the area.
eat some jellybeans
r24 Deviled eggs or a fruit tray from the deli maybe?
I'm gonna get my plump snauer motherfucking shanked by my boy toy whose gonna be wearing a bunny costume with a hole in the crotch for his mucho gigante braciole! I'm gonna where a delicate Easter bonnet that makes me look like a pastel Carmen miranda. After I get fucked we are gonna have an Easter egg hunt and make kwanza cake.
And I meant wear bitches, girlfriend's on her iPhone, soon to be. I- boned!
Changing my oil.
Getting fucked a lot.
[R20] Yeah, minimum wage losers like medical professionals, people in law enforcement, and firefighters.
Many people don't work in offices M-F 9-5.
Eat some hot assssss....
Fucking like bunnies.

Or someone who's not a cubefrau.

Same here on the Twin fForks of Long Island. My house cats are going stir crazy. We've got spring birds singing -- song sparrows, male cardinals practicing their mating trills, redwing blackbirds, grackles and the robins are singing vespers, but it's still cold as fuck. The cats hear the birdsong and yearn for us to open the windows so they can sit and sniff the air and watch the birdies, but they'll have to wait.
I'm going to color eggs on Saturday night. We all like hard boiled eggs, so they won't go to waste. My kid is 14 but I still make an Easter basket for him with a choc bunny and some Cadbury and some Reese's eggs. He hates peeps and jelly beans.
It's supposed to rain on Easter Sunday, so wtf. I'm not making any kind of dinner. My partner only eats fish, no other meat and I hate fish. We all pretty much concoct our own meals. I guarantee my Jewish partner will once again call the local pizza place and wonder why on earth no one is answering on a weekend night.
Banana bread pudding and a couple of bottles of Prosecco, R24. Don't over think this.
Here are a bunch of recipes:
[quote] Cold food, I'm told. Maybe 15 or so people.
Brown rice salad or a rice pilaf
Mediterranean salad -- lots of online recipes. Olives, tomatoes, rice, onion, oregano, spinach leaves, feta cheese, cucumber
Pita bread, hummus and tahini -- or use sliced cucumbers instead of pita bread if you want to avoid extra carbs.
Bean salad -- lots of different types. You've got your three bean salad; a chick pea salad with onion, spinach, parsley, rosemary, finely chopped cucumber; a southwestern black bean salad with corn, chopped tomato and chopped avocado; a Mexican bean salad with lime, salsa, cilantro and Tabasco
Shrimp. Make your own cocktail sauce with horseradish, ketchup, lemon juice and Worcester and a touch of Tabasco and chili sauce
After both my parents passed away, this will be my 1st Easter alone. Siblings will all be going to their in-laws for dinner. Kinda sucks, but I'll find a way to make the day fun or productive. . . one of the two.
Erm, shouldn't that be the Purple Party, heretic?
Get some frozen mozzarella sticks that come with a sauce packet. Put in oven and bring to party. People will eat room temperature mozzarella sticks and tomato sauce.
I bought some TGIF breaded green beans with wasabi dip and they were a huge hit at Christmas. You can always use raw green beans and supply a dip of your own making or just make roasted balsamic green beans or roasted Parmesan green beans as a dish.
Having dinner with the family in Rancho Mirage, near Palm Springs. Wonder if I'll see Paris Hilton's parents like last year. Paris not there, but her little sisters or cousins were appropriately slutty looking.
Going to my mom's with my partner and my dad (parents are divorced but still friends).
Mom is doing the butterflied lamb and peas, I'm doing the asparagus risotto.
Then bunny cake. funfun.
[qoute]Going to my mom's with my partner and my dad
You sicko. And rubbing it in your mom's face, too!
That sounds tasty, r49. You're making me miss my grandmother.
Certainly not shopping. The damn stores are closed.
Pissed Off Jew
Why do people keep wishing others a happy Easter? Are they so clueless they don't know not everyone is religious?
Glad to have the day off. Went to Family DOllar and bought a Reb Baron pizza on sale. Watched some old movies. It's gray and sprinkly out, and the temp is falling.
