An advantage of Altzeimers - you get to hide your own Easter eggs. Happy Easter everyone.

Just to add a more religious theme to the posts...........

Abe: Chapter two...... Jesus looked down from the cross and spoke to the assembled...... "Don't eat all the chocolate Easter eggs, I'll be back in a few days"

I would have liked to invite you all to the Easter Sunday lunch we had yesterday. Two days work in the kitchen and Mrs OFSO produced:

- Salmon Mousse with gambas and scallops (with buttered toast);
- Roast Lamb with mint sauce and all the usual trimmings (and lots of garlic);
- Choice of chocolate pudding, rice pudding with pistachios, sweet mousse or cake
- Coffee and biscuits

Served with a 2003 Rioja Bordeaux prize-winner.
Lavazza Oro espressos.

We never got round to the brandy and cognac as we (and the guests) fell slightly asleep on the safe afterwards.

Happy Easter !

It took her two years, but this singer got the rights and permission from Leonard Cohen to use his tune, but redo the words, and thus render the song "Hallelujah" with a theme closer to the original term's meaning.

This Easter the plan was for my wife and I to be at home by ourselves. So, with that in mind, I decided that diner would be a nice leg of lamb, deboned, grilled/smoked on the charcoaler, fresh grilled asparagus with roasted red potatoes seasoned with fresh rosemary, tyme, dill and of course salt and pepper.

And of course my Caesar salad.

Well all that changed Saturday night just as we were leaving to go out with some friends to a restaurant, when we get a phone call from the youngest son. Plans had changed and now they were coming for Easter, with some friends.

Now we were going to have eleven people for Easter dinner, with me having a small leg of lamb that at the most could feed four people.

The folks at the grocery store saw me a lot Sunday. :p

On your list of dinner items for you Easter banquet I noted a conspicuous absence of Brussels sprouts. Why is that, pray tell? :}

Yes, dazdaz, but what do you drink it out of ?!

We use glasses from Glashütte Valentin Eisch GmbH made of Sensis plus Glass, and poured from a glass-and-gold hand cut decanter, also of Sensis plus Glass.

And, our fish and chips is served on pages from the Financial Times Business Section and NOT the Daily Mirror sports section like what yours are.

He drinks it out of a fake antique glass in the back of a cheap old Rolls Royce.

Interesting piece on the Beeb the other morning about a shortage of chocolate eggs...apparently Cadbury alone makes 50 million of them, never mind Nestlé, Lindt, Thorntons et al.

So, given that 50,000,000 eggs is enough for almost the entire UK population to have one each, and if you believe the Daily Fail half of the country is bloody Muslim anyway, who's eating all of them?!?!?

22nd Apr 2014, 18:47
Was it a shortage of chocolate EGGS or a shortage of the cocoa to make the chocolate as I saw an item that said we are running out of cocoa or demand can't keep up with supply ????

22nd Apr 2014, 20:29
No shortage of anything chocolate around here, but the price, dang. :(

I had to get five chocolate bunnies on Sunday/Easter morning, 25 bucks. Highway robbery, but I had no choice.
