Every year, I get so excited with the season of Easter just around the corner.  What it means to me, my faith… it is a very awakening time of year for me.   A time of remembrance…   A time of worship…   A time of praise…   A time of thankfulness…  To wrap it up, it is a time of celebration!

Easter dinner at our house has become a tradition for my family…  After our Easter services, we all meet back at my house for a wonderful time of fellowship and really good food and one huge Easter egg hunt! I can’t tell you how excited I get to have everyone over… Two of my favorite holidays are remembering His gifts and His sacrifice.  And, to be with my family celebrating this… All coming together… Well, I just LOVE it!   It is extremely special times to me and my family!

With all that being said… There is a liiiittle preparation for our Sunday dinner. I believe this year we have decided on Adam’s Grilled Pork Loin {he’s been known to channel Bobby Flay} with Natalie’s Wild Rice {really it’s Uncle Ben’s ~ but hey… just go with it},  And I’m gonna whip up a mean dish of mac-n-cheese {a-little-Nonna-a-little-me-it’s-gooood},  Nana’s Baked Beans,  Mee Maw’s Linguini Salad,  Kim’s not-cooking-squash-casserole-cause-I-hate-making-it-so-I’m-cooking-green-beans-instead,  Mother’s Yummy Corn Casserole,  Vicky’s she-cooks-all-the-time-so-she’s-deciding-from-all-her-recipes-dessert {smile},  Aunt Bren’s I-never-know-it-arrives-in-a-portable-oven-and-its-always-good,  Marilyn’s again-I-never-ask-whatever-her-culinary-heart-desires-it’s-good, Nannie’s/Publix Dessert {yes, she can cook… she just chooses not to} LaKristin’s I-don’t- know-she-better-be-thinking-we-need-to-break-her-in, Emma Mae’s gonna try out some hot cross rolls and of course a few honorable unmentioned staples topped off with Sweet Nana Nell’s Banana Pudding! {Vicky’s gonna see if Nell will share her recipe… it’s to die for and I don’t eat bananas!}

I mean…  watch out!  

So, what are we gonna serve all this yummy-in-my-tummy food on…  Well, that is what I wanted to share…  I love paper plates, I do.  But, for Easter Sunday we need to eat off the real stuff… don’t you think?  In the past, we have eaten off a combination of different dishes from the cabinet. Mixing them all together.  But, with all these soiree’s we have been having…  I thought I might look for an inexpensive dinner plate. 

 

My J-Bird had a little party her back in January and I debuted my new dish!  And, since then I have been grabbing a few more here and there.  It’s just a simple white dinner plate from non other than Dollar Tree!  And, you can’t beat  a dollar!   They are not fancy.  Just simple white dishes, but they did the trick for wanting just a simple white plate!

So, if you are in the need and quantity is an issue…  swing by your dollar store and see what they have got!  

Okay…  Hoping everyone’s preparations {spiritually and physically}  are coming along wonderfully!  Remembering and praying that in all the celebrating we keep Christ center!  Blessing to you all today, this weekend and the up and coming Easter celebrations!  

How do you guys entertain on a dime?!  Got any tips?

Natalie
