Easter in Seattle means...Showers!

The card below says "Happy Easter" in Dutch.
For some reason it always rains in Seattle on Easter. Today was no exception. It is wet outside and stormy, but inside we are warm and cozy. We had a small family meal at midday today with Jake and Simon and my stepfather, Brian.

Our Easter Feast

Salmon pate and crackers,
shrimp cocktail,
deviled eggs
Main Course:
Glazed Ham
Jake's au gratin potatoes
Asparagus with Lemon breadcrumbs
Carrots and Peas
Rosemary Bread
Coconut- Lemon Cheesecake
Ipanema Bourbon coffee (Starbucks)

It was all quite delicious. Jake helped me prepare most of the meal. He is responsible for the fabulous Au Gratin Potatoes (the hit of the party) and the deviled eggs. For the potatoes, he followed a simple au gratin potato recipe, but doctored it up a bit with some bleu cheese and a showering of pancetta. (I will provide the recipe soon!)

Hope you all have a Happy Easter!

Yummy , wish I was there too..
We drove to Mt Shasta beautiful day, It was 65 degrees at least at the ski lifts. Had a nice day. My Easter dinner was a Big whopper & Clay had a subway sandwich.. How much better could that be?
