I suck at making easter dinner.
When youngling was really young, we watched an episode of Spongebob Squarepants. His grandmother made him a sweater “with love in every stitch”. Cooking is a little like that. I love cooking and baking at Yuletime. Everybody has holidays that time of year and the whole mishmash cookie loving thing is an expression of joy, light and the human spirit. I’m into it.
Easter is another story. It’s something I do for other people. It has zero meaning to me. Zip, ziltch, nothing. Spring equinox was a week ago. Happy renewal and spring everyone…but easter? It has taken years for me to go from actively disliking it to mere apathy, and it shows. Don’t get me wrong…loves me some ham and chocolates…but cooking mojo goes out the window when you just aren’t feeling it. Today I’m making the exact same meal we had for Christmas (we like it that much) but with twice the mess in the kitchen and the general lacking of some intangible something that I just can’t figure. Hopefully they won’t notice the difference. Maybe it’s my imagination. Don’t know. Doesn’t matter. I’ll get the ham glaze chiseled off of the stove eventually.
For those of you who do celebrate easter, may you have a lovely day, without your ham glaze boiling over.
For those of you who don’t celebrate easter….let’s go have a cup of coffee and a slightly overcooked brownie for tomorrow is another day
Wonderful Weekend to everyone!
