Day 71 and Easter

Today, we had a slow start getting back into the swing of things with Spring Break being over.  I don't have pics of M's lunch or D's snack.  D and A had some left overs for lunch today.  Mashed potato, ham bunny, broccoli tree with purple carrot flowers, some green beans, grapes, orange and strawberry.

We had a great Easter here.  It was a beautiful day.  We enjoyed every minute of it! 
I am embarassed to admit that this is my baby at 6:30 a.m. taking a bite out of her chocolate bunny.  Great way to start the day!  LOL  After the girls checked out their Easter baskets we made breakfast then moved on to preparing dessert for after our dinner.

We decided to put a spin on the Push Pop Cupcake.  We made push pop triffles.
I prepared a chocolate cake according to package instructions and baked it in a 9 x 13 dish.  Once it was completely cooled I used one of the push pop containers as a cookie cutter and cut out as many as I needed.  I made a dozen.  Then I sliced each cut out crosswise into thirds.
I put sugar free chocolate pudding in a pastry bag and lite cool whip into my Tupperware decorator to make filling easier.

We started with a layer of cake, then pudding, then cool whip until the containers were full.  The girls had a great time making them.  I kept the push stick out until I served them so they would store in my fridge easier.
