Easter egg hunt

We took the kids down to the big Easter egg hunt in Clinton today, where the ran around in the woods looking off something like 5000 eggs. Lots of sugar, lots of fun, and even some prizes. Like the ‘free’ goldfish, which needs a home and food and plants. Kind of like the free chicks from the garden store.

Of course, some of the eggs are never found, except by the squirrels. I saw two weathered eggs with the end chewed out, no candy remaining.

I also saw one of our three year old friends find the last gold egg, the one for the 10-12 year olds. They were looking and looking and then she was soooo excited that she found the shiny egg. (Never mind that piece of paper in there saying PRIZE, shiny egg!!!)

Pineapple salsa

One of the ways that I used to like salmon, way back, before I was vegetarian and then not again, was grilled with a peach or nectarine salsa. We were having salmon a few nights ago. There was a pineapple that needed used. Cilantro in the fridge that needed used. (Come to think of it, the salmon was in the needed used category too)

So, together it all went.

Finely chopped pineapple, about a cup.
A hunk of cilantro, chopped up.
A couple shakes of chipotle
Half a lime, squeezed. (Needed used. What can I say)

Served with the salmon, on the side since certain little people aren’t into anything spicy of different right now.
