I can't get the Springer Mountain Farm chicken I planned on cooking. Bummer. I put a call into Himself's sister to see if she and her DH want to come over, but I haven't heard back yet. Whether they're here or not, I'll now go with my Plan B meat: ham.

Probably have salad, a couple different veggies, and small potatoes. How much depends on how many of us are here. Oh, who am I kidding? I ALWAYS cook for 6+ even when it's just the two of us.

I'll delegate dessert to my SIL if they come. If they don't, we'll go without dessert. Or, perhaps, take a ride to a local ice cream stand to see if they're open for the season. Yum.

Thumbs up All Day Easter Feast

Here's the plan for the two of us in the middle of the desert...

Breakfast will be a Frittata made with pancetta, red bell peppers,
shallots, ricotta, mozz and parm; juice and Italian bread, lightly toasted,
no butter please

Lunch with be up at the commuinty pool, where we have a lovely Bistro, so we'll more than likely order a salad and lounge around the lovely swimmin' hole with an adult beverage

Dinner, I've already purchased Boar's Head Sweet Slice Ham, cut into beautiful steaks; I'll roast fresh Asparagus with EVOO, garlic and S&P, and Pillsbury Popin' Fresh Crescent rolls

Dessert will be Tunnel of Fudge Cake ala Cook's Country (America's Test Kitchen), I've been wanting to try this recipe. It keeps for two days, so I made that cake today, so that I don't have to fuss with with it on Sunday.
NOW, let's see if it lasts that long

Hadn't given it a thought yet, but we will be shopping for the week today and something will go on the list for Sunday.

Happy Easter to all of you! Hope there is much chocolate in there, somewhere.

We will be having, God willing:

Ukrainian-style "perogies" filled with potatoes or sauerkraut (actually peroheh is the correct way to say it)

Feta, pear & walnut salad with a dressing suggested by the good folks at discusscooking.com

Poached eggs

Spring greens


Beet-horseradish relish, home made of course

Home-made cuc pickles,
simple lactofermented

DESSERT: wild Saskatoons, cooked.
Nothing fancy.

Looks like dinner tomorrow will be a Paella with chicken thighs, Spanish chorizo, shrimp, clams and I will be subbing a dungeness crab for lobster this time.

We did. The federal government was operating normally.

Change of plans. They were out of clams and the shrimp that were left didnt look too good so we will be having an Asian flavors brined, black tea smoked, roasted chicken with baby bok choy cooked somehow and maybe another side of some kind. Paella will have to wait for later next week.

Easter isn't a federal holiday...you just didn't get any mail. And that's a good thing, isn't it? Well, no bills at least.
