My Texas Table Newsletter - Easter Dinner Favorites


Happy Friday friends!!!  

I hope you had a great week? The weather here in North Texas has been a bit crazy, but that's usually how spring is in Texas. Between all the rain, wind and up and down temps we did finally have time to get our backyard cleaned up from old man winter. We also had a chance to get a start on our large raised bed vegetable garden and planted all of our seeds and plants. Our potatoes, onions, peppers and tomato plants went in a couple weeks ago, but it was finally time to to get all of our seeds in the ground. The beginning of gardening season is always so exciting. 

Spring has finally sprung my friends and Easter is in just 2 short days!!!  💮 🐰  If you're looking for a few recipes for Easter dinner you've come to the right place.

    This Classic American Goulash and my Strawberry Cream Cake are the recipes that were the most popular last month over on the blogHave you tried them??? This American Goulash has Beef, tomatoes, macaroni and spices simmered together all in one pot! Goulash is one of my favorite old fashioned meals. My Strawberry cake starts with a baked french vanilla cake, infused with strawberry gelatin, topped with a creamy filling and finished off with a fresh strawberry glaze. This cake is definitely a show stopper for any holiday occasion. 

    Recipes that I found online (not mine) that I can't wait to share with you.
     A couple weeks back, I came across this Chocolate Cream Pie and this Blueberry  Ambrosia Salad while scrolling through my Face book feed. This Chocolate Cream Pie has a graham cracker crust, scratch chocolate pudding and topped with whipped cream and mini chocolate chips. I can't wait to try this recipe. If you love Ambrosia, I think you're going to like this Fresh Blueberry version.

    Seasonal Recipe or featured post that I think you'll like.
    I recently tried my hand at crocheting my first baby blanket. Just before Christmas my first grand child was born and I'm over the moon in love with her. I thought it was only fitting to make her a soft baby blanket with my favorite Bernat Blanket Yarn. When it comes to crocheting, I always try to keep it simple. Mainly because I'm pretty much still a beginner myself. I chose vintage white for the main color and pitter patter for the accent color (border). This blanket only took two evenings to crochet and was really simple once you got started. If you're looking for a simple fluffy blanket to crochet, I think this is the one.  Click here to find out how to crochet this simple baby blanket
