Holy cow. Easter will be here before you know it. Sorry – this year the early food holidays have just stacked up way too much. Super Bowl Sunday smashed into Mardi Gras – literally. I’m not kidding. Two days apart.
I understand that Pi Day will always fall right in line with St. Patrick’s Day. There is no denying the calendar on that one, but they are fixed points – unlike Mardi Gras and Easter – thank you Hebrew calendar for keeping us on our toes.
I am thinking something with lemon. But that seems to be something I do a lot. Or Asparagus. Or fresh herbs. I won’t go all crazy and say I’ll make lamb, because I won’t. I at least know myself well enough to know that will not happen. Ham, also, will not be in my future. We’re just not big fans.
What is really strange to me is I do not remember any big food traditions for my family for Easter. I’ll have to ask my dad, but no, I’ve really got nothing.
We always dyed eggs (Paas and vinegar are always linked together in my brain), had great Easter baskets, went to church, did the egg hunt thing. But that is all I remember.
Either way, I am going to have to come up with something for Easter dinner this year
. Carrot Cake seems to be a repeating element. But, I think I am going back to my original idea – lemons. Yep. That is what I’ll do. No surprise really.
Tomorrow is Good Friday, so I best decide.
