Easter In Quarantine

Easter in Quarantine

Easter is one of my favorite holidays. The weather, the dresses, the candy, the food all in the name of Jesus. For the past two years, we have also enjoyed an Easter Egg Hunt at our club, and we were ready to take home the golden egg this year! 

But thanks to COVID-19, that’s not happening. On the sunnyside, we are going to make it feel like Easter with streaming the Pope’s Easter Mass and some of my favorite traditions below made possible by Target and Shipt

Bright Decorations and Easter eggs

I really only decorate for Christmas and Easter. Compared to Christmas, decorating for Easter is so easy and fun. I just add a simple runner to my dining table, sweet dish towels in my kitchen, a garland here and there, glass containers with eggs, and of course, a Spring wreath.

It takes less than an hour to make our house ready for Easter. 

Some of my fondest childhood memories involve dying eggs for Easter. It was always a “thing” and there were frequently friends who joined us. Those eggs always end up deviled (see below). 

As we speak, Target is preparing my order with a variety of egg-dying kits for pick-up! It was so easy to order supplies or have them delivered via Shipt

Easter Baskets and Easter Egg Hunt

Trusty Target previously delivered Easter books, crafts, candy and small toys that I ordered to be shipped directly to me. It was incredibly easy and I was able to assemble my baskets in a few minutes. 

My mom would always make a trail of candy leading to my basket. I love this tradition and do it with my son. 

Just like the basket, I ordered from Target and assembled eggs to hide. This year, we will have a hunt in our backyard. The best part? My son won’t have to compete with anyone for the Golden Egg!

Brunch

We have enjored Casa Marina Brunch Buffett for the past few years, but this year we are cooking. My mom his just hoping that Honey Baked Ham is open, but I crave cheesy potatoes! My dad asked for something sweet and my husband wants Hawaiian rolls to make sandwiches.Mimosas and bloody marys will also be on the menu!

We all agree that those dyed eggs should be deviled. I love deviled eggs, so here are two of my favorite deviled eggs recipes. 

How to hard boil:

Cover the eggs in an inch of water. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, take off the burner and cover. Let sit for 7-10 minutes. For soft boiled, 5 – 7 minutes then immediately cool under cold water. 

Peel and slice using a sharp knife. Wipe the knife off after each slice. 

Traditional Eggs:

6 egg yolks

3 tablespoons of mayonnaise

1 ½ tablespoon of yellow mustard

Salt and Pepper to taste

Dill to Garnish

Spoon out the centers into a bowl and mash with a fork. You can also use a food processor for a creamier filling. Add all ingredients together and blend. 

Transfer the mix into a piping bag or onto parchment paper rolled into a piping bag. (You can also use a ziplock with a hole cut at the corner). Evenly add the filling into each half of the eggs. Garnish with dill.

For an added flavor, use wholegrain mustard. 

Creamy Garlic Eggs:

Traditional Eggs:

6 egg yolks

5 tablespoons of whipped cream cheese

2 tablespoons of mayonnaise

1 clove garlic minced

Salt and Pepper to taste

Dehydrated onion to garnish

A Fabulous Spring Outfit

What would Easter be without a sundress? I bought the sweetest eyelet dress months ago, and I am excited to show it off to my family this weekend! Nordstrom and Amazon are still shipping!
