German Easter Bread and Easter Egg, Holy Saturday, part II



Just got the German Easter Bread out of the oven. I'm really pleased with the way it looks. I used
Acacia Honey. Yummm, it's the best honey I have ever tasted. Here is a simple recipe for German Easter Bread with Pillsbury Hot Roll Mix. It takes about an hour all told.

My friend, Bethy, (yup, I have two Bethy friends and a Bethy granddaughter!), makes these Easter eggs for friends each Lent. She made me 5 which are going to be prizes at our church's Easter egg hunt after Mass tomorrow. Isn't it beautiful...do you see the flowers and ladybug inside?...all made by Bethy!
Now, let's see, I have to press Raf's pants and my skirt, and get ready to go back to church tonight for the Great Easter Vigil. It is the most spectacular service of the year. This is not a photo of our church, but this shows what it will be like. The service will begin outside where the priest will light the New Fire. The New Fire will be brought inside where the congregation will have candles and as the light passes, the church will slowly be brought into the light. This begins tonight a 8 pm...after dark, of course.
