Alleluia! Christ is risen!!
And so am I. The alarm went off at 6 a.m. this morning. Fifteen minutes later, I was making pie crust. Now at 7.30 a.m., the pineapple pie is nearly baked, and will soon emerge from the oven.
The homemade cheesy potatoes are ready for baking too, including a from-scratch sauce. http://realmomkitchen.com/10810/no-cream-of-soup-potato-casserole-aka-funeral-potatoes/
Fresh flowers grace all four downstairs rooms.
The table is set.
A joyous resurrection celebration awaits at Christ Church Cathedral, and then I come home for Easter dinner with seven beloved students. On the menu: steak, cheese grits, cheesy potatoes, asparagus. Pineapple pie. And a wonderful & decadent tuna spread for an appetizer.
