After more than a week of not cooking a bit, I am happy to be back in my kitchen! Dough is rising in the fridge, the grill will be fired up tonight, and I need to get Eric to sharpen my knives, while I'm at it.
We're having TWENTY SEVEN people here for Easter Sunday Brunch. I'm making the ham, some Nana Rolls, bacon-leek-swiss quiche, and everyone is bringing everything else. Sometimes I like that, sometimes I get twitchy hoping there's enough food - not everyone is used to cooking a pan of potatoes to feed 27 people, right? Ah, it'll turn out just fine. The kids can fill up on jelly beans.
Have a great week!
