So many good things on the horizon meant this week dragged juuuuuust a little, and I've had a slow start to a few mornings. Since I've sworn off candy until Easter, dried cranberries and green tea have been my go-to items. Luckily, Easter is just around the corner, so my fantasies about the contents of my fluorescent basket will become a reality shortly.
The shelves at drug stores and grocery stores have been lined with treats in pink and yellow packages for over a month, so I've had plenty of time to plan my sugar attack for Easter Sunday. Without further ado, here is this week's Friday five: my favorite Easter morning treats!
1. Easter "grass" littered with candy -- Paper, plastic, shiny or matte. I love all kinds! For as far back as I can remember, there have always been M&Ms in our Easter baskets. But, rather than an unopened bag of them, my mom sprinkles handfuls of pastel plain and peanut chocolate candies among the faux grass. Every year we complain about this -- "they're too hard to find!" -- but secretly enjoy the hunt, especially when we have otherwise emptied the baskets and find a few stragglers at the bottom :)
