This weekend is cold and rainy so far in my area, I can't seem to get warm.

1. Will you be having guests this weekend?

2. Do you ever travel for your holidays?

3. Have you ever made colored eggs by boiling the eggs in tea?

4. On the day of a holiday, do you eat a

1. No guests.
2. We went to Knott's Berry Farm for Thanksgiving a few years ago. I hate Halloween, so we like to try to plan something at that time, especially since it is always a long weekend here.
3. I've never colored eggs naturally.
4. For Thanksgiving & Christmas we have fresh baked croissants with ham, cheese, fruit & juice. More filling than our usual breakfast, but not too heavy. I thought about doing that forEaster, but Levi found a recipe for an apple cream cheese coffee cake that he wants to make.
5. We love lamb & eat it 4 or 5 times a year -- we'd eat it more if it were cheaper. I'd love to make some lamb shanks, but the only place I can find them charges $8 a pound... Just another one of the things we ate as a kid 'cuz it was cheap & now it is expensive!

Yikes I was happily reading your answers for interest after I replied to Brenda, and something jumped out...coloured eggs, (blush) I guess I just missed seeing that question in my answer. LOL. Colouring them naturally is great but the colours are pretty subtle.

You are right on the lamb shanks, they were a super cheap meal but even they have become expensive. In Winter I spring for them more often. I like to throw them in the crock pot or brown on the stove and slow roast in the oven. Now I am making myself hungry I need to go prepare dinner!

Hi Suzi, That sounds like a perfect way to celebrate!

I've only had lamb in a gyro, I loved it.
