I have always enjoyed Easter…the cooking…the getting together with family and friends.
This year, although some things remain the same, things will be a bit different especially in the cooking department.
As a kid and even as an adult, Holy Saturday was a day of cooking. The house always smelled of ham roasting in the oven, smoked kielbasa boiling away on the stove top, and some kind of cake being baked before the day was over.
Of course none of this food could be eaten or sampled because Holy Saturday is a no meat day in our house. Come Sunday after church all the goodies would be brought out and we would feast all day.
This year, however, the cooking and baking did not happen. There was no kielbasa cooking away. It is not the healthiest of foods although it is quite delicious. There was no ham in the oven. At this point we don’t need that much even if we froze most of it.
And worst of all, at least for me, no cake. Since I am still limited in what I can and can’t do a cake was put on hold for this year.
I didn’t tell my brother this because we usually go to visit him in the afternoon and take something with us as a snack to feed the family and friends that gather in his apartment for the afternoon.
Oh well, hopefully next year things will be back to normal.
Happy Easter to all!
