Happy Easter

I want to wish all of you a Happy Easter. No matter how you chose to observe it Easter brings families and friends together to celebrate a rebirth that occurred many years ago. Easter also provides us an opportunity to taste family traditions at the dinner table. Maybe it’s your grandmother’s favorite desert of mothers famous honey baked ham. My mother baked a ham for that dinner. She would slice a diamond pattern across the outside of the ham and my job was to stick a clove into each diamond shape. When I was done, it reminded me of a porcupine. I remember the wonderful smells and laughter around the dining table. Tomorrow I’ll celebrate this wonderful time with my son and his family and his in-laws.

As we say in Italian, Buona Pasqua.
