Easter Eats 2012

Granted I was far away from my family and flying solo this Easter (duty calls for the husband), I had the pleasure of spending it with my second family!

Round one was spent at The Meerkat Manor where we dined on a delicious spread of: ham, broccoli casserole, sausage cheese balls, deviled eggs, rolls, caprese salad, and homemade brew.

 Sausage Cheese Balls (O.M.G. GOOD!)

 Ingredients:
- 1lb Spicy Sausage (Casing Removed)
- 1lb Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Finely Grated *8z
- 3c biscuit mix * 2c
* Revision that my friend uses
  1. Cut sausage into small pieces, add cheese and biscuit mix.
  2. Put in mixer until it it is fully blended. 
  3. Roll into 1-inch balls, freeze on baking sheet. 
  4. Once frozen, bake for 25mins in a 350 degree oven. 
The sausage cheese balls can be kept in a freezer for a very long time if you decide to put some away for later! This would be an awesome breakfast with eggs and some fresh fruit!

Easter got even more fun when they had set up a Easter egg hunt for myself, Bre, and John! I don't know if I was just rusty at this hunting for eggs thing, but man did they do a good job hiding them. I was eventually rewarded with the perfect gift for a champagne lover...it is a stopper that will keep your champagne carbonated!


Round two was spent at my friend Lucy's house. The New Orleans natives made us a mean crawfish boil this afternoon.  It was my first crawfish experience, and it was awesome. The meal was spicy, simple, interactive, and overall just fun! I was so excited that I finally got to indulge in the yummy creole goodness, next time it'll be with my husband!

 I even sucked the heads of these babies, I figured if I was going to have the full experience I might as well go all the way! Click here to see how to eat crawfish.

I hope you all were able to spend the day with your friends and family too! Be sure to make those Sausage cheese balls and if you haven't had the pleasure of going to a crawfish boil, seek one out! Happy Easter!
