Weekend To Do List - Safer At Home Edition

Each week we bring you the Great Life RE Weekend To Do List. We don't want to stop now! Experts say staying at home is the safest way to be. All over the country, and world, things are shutting down so we can stay home and try to be safe. It's easy to go stir-crazy at home, but thankfully there are a lot of ways to stay active and safe while you're practicing social distancing. 

So let's try another week of the Great Life RE Weekend To Do List: Safer At Home  Edition! 

Do: Safe and Socially Distant Easter Events

Easter is Sunday, but this Easter will be very different than what many of us are use to. Local news stations like WBIR have gathered information on some Easter events we can still do safely. 

  • Saturday, April 11, 11am-2pm. Rothchild Catering and Event Rentals will host “The Egg-travagant Easter Drive-Thru,” a free activity that families can enjoy from the comfort of their car. It will be held at Rothchild Catering, 8807 Kingston Pike. Guests will slowly drive through an exhibit tent filled with giant hand-painted decor and lighting and the Easter Bunny will be there, waving from a safe distance. 
  • Hearts Way Baptist Church, located at 2810 Middlebrook Pike in Knoxville, will hose a drive-in Easter church service from their parking lot at 11 a.m. on Easter morning, April 12.
  • Neighborhood Egg Hunts, Similar to the ‘bear hunts’ and ‘chalk walks’ we’ve seen popping up in neighborhoods all over America, the Knoxville Moms Blog egg hunt works best if lots of neighbors (young and old) participate. So, spread the word in your local neighborhood! Decorate an egg any way that you want. Download an Egg Coloring Page HERE. Display your egg(s) in your windows by Wednesday, April 8th. Go on an egg hunt with your family to see how many eggs you can find!

Eat: Online Cooking Classes With Lambert's Southern Pies & Bake Shop Cafe 

If you have never been to Lambert's you are certainly missing out. We know because they are located right across from our Maryville office and boy do they get us in trouble with all their delicious meals and sweets. While Lambert's is closed right now during the COVID crisis Angela is bringing us some amazing cooking videos on their Facebook page. So far she's made cinnamon rolls, sweet and savory biscuits, and pimento cheese. She does these videos each Thursday live, but you can find them recorded and a list of ingredients online. Be sure to support them when they open back up for regular business! Her strawberry shortcake, made with the sweet and savory biscuit, would make an excellent Easter dessert.
