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!
