Easter Bunny

Saturday night, we decided to dye hard boil eggs. It's was Adam, Erin, Jessie, Sean, and me coloring eggs. Sean had an absolute blast. His hands were smurf blue by the time he was done. He would pick up an egg and just drop it in. Later that night when Sean was asleep we helped the easter bunny hide the easter eggs in the backyard. I was told that the easter bunny doesn't put eggs in trees, but come on people easter bunny doesn't lay eggs. Sunday morning the babies went through there easter baskets. We had to help little Reese with hers, but she enjoyed it. She liked the different colored eggs and her new rattle toys. Sean had his basket empty in two seconds. He save the best for last his new toy car. After digging through easter baskets it was time for me to make monkey bread for the 11am brunch. Yummy!
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cans (16.3 oz each) Pillsbury® Grands!® Homestyle refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, if desired
1/2 cup raisins, if desired
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 12-cup fluted tube pan with shortening or cooking spray. In large -storage plastic food bag, mix granulated sugar and cinnamon.
2. Separate dough into 16 biscuits; cut each into quarters. Shake in bag to coat. Arrange in pan, adding walnuts and raisins among the biscuit pieces.
3. In small bowl, mix brown sugar and butter; pour over biscuit pieces.
4. Bake 28 to 32 minutes or until golden brown and no longer doughy in center. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Turn upside down onto serving plate; pull apart to serve. Serve warm.

It's Sean favorite. While mokey bread was cooking, we took Sean outside to hunt for eggs. He started out slow but he got the hang of it. Some of the eggs were engulfed by weeds over night. Finally, it was brunch time. Wow I couldn't even begin to tell you how much food was here. Cheese Danish, Monkey bread, Sausage, Bacon, Two egg cassroles, veggie plate, Fruit plate, spanish dip bowl, mini sandwiches, chicken fingers, cheese tray, and I a couple more things. I think we could of feed an army. Most of the leftovers went up to Florida Gulf Coast University for the hungry college kids or Erin's friends. Besides Reese coming down with a cold easter was pretty filling in so many ways. Happy easter everyone.
