Ours is two weeks, started last Monday. Then it rolls into Easter weekend, so they arent back until April 2nd. Thats a long time!
DD has a week of spring break next week but DS only has three days around easter, which seems strangely short. We are in party mode around here as the little guy is officially potty trained ~ no more diapers for us. Woot! My daughter had a great birthday and I'm just trying to keep my head above the water at the moment between the various activities of the coming month ~ its a lot.
Lisa your foot rash sounds like psoriasis, which is what originally got our family into eating GF. Have you seen a Derm? I'm so sorry that you are dealing with this :( It has been a long road of elimination and allergy testing and hippy doctors and whatnot for us. I love hippy doctors.
Easter for us is a ham and lamb, we are going to do a butterflied leg on the grill.
I like neither ham, nor lamb, nor other foods that rhyme with them. (Like Spam!) I'm relieved I don't celebrate Easter. Of course we don't celebrate Passover either, since I'm not religious, but I always thought that came with better appetizers.
Yeah, easter is far and away my least favorite food holiday. Even mid level holidays like 4th of July and Memorial day beat it out. I love the vegetables, and the desserts, but the mains don't do much for me. Ham is super boring in my book, and though I enjoy grilled lamb it's not in my top 5 or so.
The chocolate's pretty good, though.
We're having crawfish for Easter. My neighbor is throwing a big crawfish boil that day...I have no idea why he chose Easter and I quite honestly don't think there is any correlation, as they are not religious. And I hate crawfish, but I love my neighbors, so we'll be hanging out with them and having a good ole' time. And I'm making an appetizer (probably spinach/artichoke dip) and BTS cake.
We will be roasting smokies over a campfire for Easter dinner and having pulled pork on a bun off the BBQ :) Helluva feast, IMO. Some homemade slaw on the side and s'mores for dessert. Drool..... :drool:
Melis, does psoriasis make the affected area feel thicker than the skin around it, like it's raised a bit? It's red with a horrible white flaky scale over top, and it itches like a mofo. It is frikkin disgusting.
