Right now, I am more relaxed than I have been in months.
For the first time in a long time, I have absolutely nothing to do. J is upstairs napping, David and my parents are out fishing, I have nothing to do for the house or for work. I have shut down about the move for this week. So, I get to do nothing except enjoy the quiet, the soft breezes, and the warmth. Pure bliss.
In fact, I’m so exceedingly lazy right now, I am using Siri to write this, so I don’t even have to bother typing, and my biggest worry is the fact that I actually have to get out of this hammock to go and get a Corona. Life is full of hard decisions….
However, just a week ago it was Easter. I was lucky/unlucky enough to share Easter with my 29th birthday this year. The day ended up being more about J’s first Easter than it was about my birthday, but I was fine
with that- and truth be told, that made the day even more special.
I always do a nice brunch at Easter for us. The menu rarely varies, which is kind of nice. There is no major planning or prepping to do, and the whole thing requires minimal effort and removal from holiday festivities. If you are looking for big presentation points with minimal work to get you there, this is for you.

- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Add in flour, milk and salt until just mixed (DO NOT over mix). Pour into pan. Bake 25-30 minutes or until puffy and deep golden brown. Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes; remove onto serving plate.
