Easter Dinner

Happy Easter to all. Hope the Easter Bunny was good to everyone. I had a fabulous day with my family(we were 20 in all ranging from 80 to 9 months). We ate drank laughed and loved. I cooked a wonderful meal that was enjoyed by all. I am going to list the menu and post the pictures of some ot the dishes and let them speak for themselves.

I am thankful I have such a wonderful family it is a pleasure to share my life with them.

OK here's what we had. Some of my favorites are the traditional Italian dishes that define the Easter Holiday (at least for my family)

Appetizers: Mini Meatballs in sauce

Antipasto Platter

Pizza Rustica (Italian meats & Cheese in a Ricotta mixture encased in a savory pie dough).

Calms & Mussels in a garlicky beer & wine sauce (MMGOOD!!!)

Entree: Roasted Vegetables

Garden Salad


Fresh Pork Roast

Herbed Rice

Lard Bread / Celebration Bread (home made)

Dessert: Lemon Cake with Cream Cheese / Marscarpone Cheese Frosting

Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Pizza Grain (Wheat Grain in Ricotta /custard mixture with orange oil & candied fruits)

A feast fit for a King wouldnt you agree. Yes I am truly Blessed. I try to remeber that everyday.

Until tomorrow eat well live well.
