There are so many wonderful things about Easter. Jesus, baskets, pastels, candy, Jesus, weather, brunch, Jesus, candy.

Seriously, if they still made those t-shirts, I’d rep a Jesus is my Homeboy tee every darn day. He is the reason I am still standing after countless worldly attempts to knock my socks off. So today & all days, I thank Him for his sacrifice & unending grace.

I also thank Him for creating Reese’s eggs without which I would not be the woman I am today. I don’t think I’ve gone a year of life without them & I never plan to. I don’t share either. They come around once a year – they are MINE. (I still have things to learn from the Big Man, obviously)

What can I say? The first sight of spring & my body is all, “eggs where’s the eggs gimme why do they only come in packs of 6 are they trying to starve me send help please.”

    This looks great! I used to work with a man who was Thai. We would fight over his Pad Thai when he brought it in to potlucks at work. My weakness at Easter is those dag gone M&M Speck-tacular Eggs. The size of peanut M&M’s but solid milk chocolate…. Oh I hope I can find a bag before going home this afternoon!!!!

    Yum this looks great and I like how you don’t add fish sauce – that always bugged me about pad thai! And I totally know what you mean about the easter reeses eggs – I just asked my dad and his girlfriend to send me some to CPH because I can’t find them here! Desperately need them.
