Fresh Raspberry and Lemon Pie...


I hope everyone is all geared up and ready for Easter...

... we're gettin' there.

I've got our eggs boiled and ready for coloring and my potatoes cookin' for my potato salad that I'm making for our Easter picnic tomorrow.

Since we live on an island, I thought it would be a great idea to do something totally out of the ordinary for us and have an Easter picnic on the beach. Usually we stay at home and I prepare a nice brunch or sit down supper for the family.

... kinda rebellious.......... I like it!

I figured, nothing too fussy... just a picnic lunch of ham and cheese on sweet rolls, potato salad, fruit salad, a cooler to pack it all up in, and the beach!

Something else not-so-fussy...... this super easy, throw together pie...... a great Spring time dessert.

Whether you do something traditional or totally, crazily out of the ordinary this Easter....... just have fun!

Aloha and Happy Easter!
