The Easter Edition

For my sloppy joe contribution to our potluck lunch.

Food and family.

Eating like a Roman: with a silver platter and reclined, but minus the puking.

Red raspberry, berry cream, chocolate peanut butter, burnt Basque cheesecake.

Hours upon hours of visiting.

Filtered water.

Little dog lover.

All set: my younger daughter finally has actual competition.

Filming Easter greetings for the absentee cousin.

Hunting.

And finding: from the hens, fresh ones.

This same time, years previous: instead of a walk, kickboxing, Caribbean milk cake, a trick for cooking pasta, the quotidian (4.4.16), red raspberry pie, sun days, working lunches, cup cheese, he wore a dress.

    Jennifer, I read this column with tears in my eyes. Family, food, and fun outdoors in the spring sunshine – it doesn’t get any better than that. EXCEPT when you are viewing it through the lens of a one-year (or more) pandemic period of deprivation. Then your lovely gathering becomes the never-to-be-taken-for-granted event that it truly is, and that is anything but “quotidian.” Thanks for the hope…
