MENU FOR THE WEEK OF APRIL 2, 2012
It would appear that Easter is upon us. The local Stop and Shop has so many Easter lilies in stock that it smells like a funeral parlor …I picked up a leg of lamb, which is traditional for my family. And we don’t eat a lot of it as it tends to run rather pricey around here. Left overs should make for a good curry next week. And I’ll keep it simple as it is just the two of us, and or course, the cat.
I was emailing my beautiful great niece today and was reminded of what Easter used to be. Of course, the new outfit which included a hat and white gloves. And my father used to get corsages for my mother and me. Things have certainly changed. I own neither a pair of white cloves nor a hat (with or without the veil). And will probably sit down for dinner in a pair of slacks. My mother would be horrified….
