Easter Dinner a la Sean

Forget orchids for this mama - for my Easter treat, Sean volunteered to cook the entire dinner and in fact explicitly forbid me from the kitchen the entire day. Throughout the afternoon he photographed his handiwork, claiming inspiration from none other than this blog. I love this man.

And so, a moment to remember his divine work:

Deviled Eggs with Bacon, Scallions and Cherry Tomatoes

Roasted Chicken and Sauteed Swiss Chard with Onions and Bacon

Roasted Beets, Carrots, and Potatoes

Strawberry Custard Pie

The roasted chicken was the gift that kept on giving; a few days after Easter, I made a ridiculously easy and delicious chicken and dumplings recipe that I found here. And I got fourteen cups of homemade chicken stock by simmering what was left after that.

As thoughts turn to spring and summer, I'm finding myself feeling somewhat uninspired...time to get my hands on a new project or a new cookbook...or perhaps to start planning the vegetable garden. I'll keep you posted.
