I’ve already documented my odd relationship with easter since it is so religious and so family in my mind it is very hard to ‘do right’ when I live far from relatives and don’t really practice. However, we have created a few traditions and as the kids get older it feels more festive and full.
Yesterday I made the figgoli and today we decorated. For a treat that is ancient and has no really special ingredients, in a modern kitchen it uses all the tools. There is the blender for cutting almonds, there is the kitchen aid to make the dough, there is the scale for measurements, there is the hand mixer for whipping egg and mixing the filling. Egg dying is next up but they are outside enjoying the gorgeous weather.
We had friends over for dinner and some games and it was a nice change of pace, tomorrow we are going to hunt eggs and do a byo brunch at another friends house and vague plans for vacation mom to drop over at some point. The nook for friends is nicely filled, I just wish I could import family more easily.
However it is you celebrate or spend this weekend I hope you have fun
