Those of you expecting to find me Blogging A to Z today will notice that there’s a break. It’s planned. In order to spread the letter through the entire month we have Sundays off! So BCDC has a chance to get back to normal today.
First of all Happy Easter! Our friend Jim from Washington, D.C. is visiting for the Holiday and we’re all excited. But due to Jim’s schedule, it worked out better for us to have our Holiday meal on Saturday. We’re also celebrating Jim’s birthday a little late (he’s a February baby) and Ralph’s birthday early (his is next week.)
As always, my contribution was a Really Big Salad! This was indeed a huge one and I was glad that my sister Ele was using the dishes with the big bowls! I filled up on salad before anything else.
My plate consisted of sour cauliflower (one of Gram’s recipes), cole slaw (also one of Gram’s-a really good batch by the way) peas (thank goodness-this plate needed some color!) and that for which I wait…always…Ele’s Mac n’ Cheese. It is so good…the best I’ve ever had in fact. I really need to make it myself sometime and post the recipe. Maybe soon… 😉
My portion. It was Ele’s homemade chocolate cake with homemade icing. Could I resist it?! I don’t think so. Well worth the calories! We also had another little treat after this, but I’m saving that for another letter coming soon to a blog near You!
I wanted to share a beautiful photo that Ralph took earlier in the week.
Wishing you all a Happy and a Blessed Easter Sunday!
