Easter a Very Special Meal

You know, sometimes life throws thing at you that you don't expect. The last 4 months have been like that for me. And, consequently, food takes a back seat. I totally have days where dinner consists of finding the freezer meal I've tucked away, or even throw together something based upon what is actually in the house at that moment.

But, holidays tend to be different. They lead to memories shared around a table with family and often friends. People laughing and crying together as their bodies are nourished with food made by hand specially selected for the occasion.

This Easter we will join friends for a non-traditional Easet dinner. But, for breakfast we will have just our little family gathered around a Sunday breakfast table in warm pajamas having just found baskets full of unimaginable treats and suprises. So, here is what I am thinking.
An egg dish: Crispy and Delicious Asparagus and Potato Tart by Jamie Oliver
Sausage and Pepper Frittata by Anne Burrell
Tomato, Green Scallion and Feta Frittata
Spinach and Goat Cheese Frittata
Mini Frittatas with Broccoli and Three Cheeses
A bread:
Challah Bread
Scones - here is a great base recipe that you can alter as you would like, or try Orange Glazed Strawberry Scones
And, a fresh fruit salad. What could be better for a spring brunch?
