The Easter Menu

Easter is going to be a quiet affair this year.  It is going to be strange celebrating sans both Moms and then we are leaving early Monday morning for our vacation.  Frank is singing at 11:30 Mass and we will have sung the Easter Vigil which is a long and beautiful ceremony.  That makes Saturday night a late night for us though.  The vigil doesn't begin until 9 pm so we won't get home much before midnight.

Nicole has to work, so Pierre is hanging out with her.  I know her Mom is cooking so hopefully they get a chance to join her and Anthony for dinner.  They joined us for dinner this past Sunday because we knew Easter wasn't going to work.  If I know my son, Chuck, I am sure he is cooking for half the Navy on Sunday.  Amy and Doug will be going to Doug's family for an early dinner and then heading over here.  We get Tingting and the Little Angel Face all day long.

All of this preface is just too let you know that the Feast is subdued this year.  No lamb and I was just going to make ham but Amy advised that we had to have fresh kielbasa as well.  I don't want to have too many leftovers.  Karen will be staying here while we are gone and she is only one person. However, I will make up some sandwiches to take on the road with us.

I pray that you all have a Happy, Holy Easter.
