Happy Easter!!!

Dinner for six this year. Lindy and Meg joined us as well as Molly’s boyfriend, Steven. I had the table set and ready to go Saturday night and decided that there wasn’t enough space for food so I took it apart and added a leaf to make it larger. Luckily the tablecloth still fit and I didn’t have to scurry around looking for another springy table cloth. I found a good deal on a cyclamen at the greenhouse on Friday and got one for my sister too. I’m using that for a centerpiece.

Here in Pennsylvania Dutch country we traditionally eat about the same thing every Easter: ham, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, pickled eggs and this year my sister requested my pasta salad. I made cupcakes and fruit salad for dessert. Steven had never eaten a pickled egg before and a few weeks ago he was here and we introduced him to Molly's favorite green bean casserole!

What are your traditional foods for Easter?

The dinner WAS great! The ham, especially....must have been the 'coca-cola'. You forgot to mention the lovely name cards on the table! Oh....and I think, from the signs at the local fire houses and churches, that ham, dandelion greens and potatoes is a biggie in PA Dutch country! Your sister, Lindy Thanks for the pasta salad...the empty dish is at mom's!
