Easter Dinner


Sad to say I didn't get a picture from yesterday, but this is the cheesecake I made for my family's Easter dinner dessert. My oh my. It was good, even without the lavendar infusion. I thought the lavendar sounded fussy, but in any case, I couldn't find any locally so I skipped it. I didn't miss it, and I didn't hear any complaints. There was one half-inch piece left and I generously left it for my younger brother's family to fight over after the rest of us left. I did take home the leftover macaroni and cheese (one spoonful-- but worth it). I promise to be better about taking pictures. I decorated the top with mint leaves and some grape hyacinths from the front garden.
Everything else before the cheesecake was good too! A mix of traditional and not. Perfectly done rotisseried leg of lamb with sides ranging from tzatziki, lentil salad, fresh feta, and pita bread to mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese. (Mac and cheese recipe HERE. Not what you find in the box, puh-leeze!) Heart-stoppingly good.

Where are the new sofas?

The macaroni and cheese is similar to what I make, but mine relies more on what I have on hand in the refrigerator. My cooking, it seems, is driven by convenience.

I've got the photos, but ran out of time getting them downloaded. More to come!

Just a testimonial from someone who enjoyed that cake immensely! Kathy, I'm emailing you a picture of that one last piece. So good to see you at Easter.
