Last Sunday we celebrated Easter...there are many aspects to our celebration. For my parents, it's primarily about resurrection; it's a religious celebration. But it's also about spending time with family. They always have a game picked out that we play between lunch and dessert. This year we played a dice game called Left Center Right. Link to the game below.* What fun!
For the boys, it's about Easter eggs and - maybe - candy and an egg hunt; it's a party.
For my husband, it's about the feast...mostly the desserts. This year he requested a tiramisu. I still need to post that recipe!
And, for me, it's about celebrating all the crisp, fresh flavors of Spring. We had Butter-Braised Radishes over Little Gems, Roasted Asparagus and Shaved Fennel, Blueberry Kouign Amann, and more.
One of April challenges for the Jamie Oliver Food Revolution Ambassadors (I'm the Monterey #FRD2015 rep!) is to...
Cook with Your Loved Ones...on Easter!
My Enthusiastic Kitchen Elf helped me quite a bit this year. He came to the farmers' market with me and asked if he could make a kale salad with the Serendipity Farms' Red Russian kale. Of course!
Here he is. And here's his recipe: Massaged Red Russian Kale.
D also helped me with the Herbed Barley Salad.
Did you cook with your loved ones on Easter?
What did you make?
