Easter Season It Is

It is the season of Easter. Our table is already set in a holiday theme to celebrate our son’s birthday on Palm Sunday. The menu is more St. Pat’s day than traditional Easter fare, at least this week. Our son and daughter-in-law were on spring break vacation when we usually have corn beef and cabbage, so we are having the Irish meal with chocolate birthday cake.

Next week our menu is more traditional–sugar cured ham, cinnamon rolls, side casseroles and strawberry cheesecake.  The blessing is to remember Christ’s sacrifice with family around the table, breaking bread together.  HAPPY EASTER!
