I still have the ham that we were suppose to eat Christmas, since dh wasn't able to eat. Maybe, he can eat it now, we'll see.
I walked into Walmart this morning and was really missing that euphoria of getting coloring and baskets and the plastic eggs to hide things in. I can't wait to have grandkids!!

Thumbs up Easter lunch/dinner

Hi everyone, for easter lunch this year, my older son is coming over ( he's 23 ), we will have BBQ fish ( not sure what sort yet ), hopefully prawns if I can afford them, a potato and asparagus bake (yummy), a tossed salad, coleslaw, and my younger son (13 ), will always want pineapple with anything, he loves the stuff, he cant get enough of it, its great to have kids that eat well and healthy, and for dessert, either a pavlova ( we love our pavs ) but may forgo the pav for a choc. dessert of some kind, I dont know what yet though. Oh and lots to drink. My kids are getting a bit to old for easter eggs but being a mom I will be getting them something choclatey for sure, cant have easter without choc. can we?.
Ok everyone have a good easter everywhere around the world, talk to y'all soon. Spiritwolf.

It is spring and am starting to come out of my winter hibernation, OK, call it torpor. At the end of the winter I just don't want to do anything.

But the slug is about to metamorphose into a butterfly (yeah I know slugs don't change into anything, and they sure as heck don't become butterflies, but I don't have time to quibble, it is SPRING).

Gosh, right now I can think of so many meals for Easter. Have not had a fresh ham in awhile. But we will be going on vacation ~ yay ~ a few days later and that may be too much a cut of meat for the two of us.

Have some frozen lamb tenderloins, teeny little things, in the freezer that we picked up from a local farmer a few weeks ago.

With some asparagus and maybe some scalloped potatoes, that sounds good.

But tasty new taters seem like they cannot be denied.

We now have a source of good scallops, and lobsters, they would be tasty.

We'll figure something out. To me Easter, Spring, renews these old bones. And I now crave the fresh foods that have eluded us for months.

Enough of those winter veggies I loved so much, no time for them anymore.

It is time to think about the garden, and the fresh herbs and veggies.

To all DCers a very happy Easter, no matter what your beliefs. It is a season for renewal and joy that all can rejoice in.

And for some reason this year I need that rejuvenation more than I have most years.

Maybe duck, yeah, that sounds good. Have not had quail in a long time.

With a salad with fresh greens topped with fried quail eggs. But gotta find the quail eggs.

Will try to calm down and get a menu.

Take care and God bless.

John has cooked the Holiday dinners for 10 years I guess...with him still in the hospital we won't have one this year. But that is perfectly OK with me..just to have him here is enough for me.
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.
