Easter Feast

Happy belated Easter! I was too busy yesterday enjoying an amazing lunch and drinking good beer to post, so I decided to do a quick recap today. We feasted on some delicious lamb, apricot Dijon glazed mustard ham, potatoes, salad, and my grandmother’s famous rice and broccoli dish. We had an array of appetizers too, but […]
