Happy Easter all. I am a firm believer that holidays are best spent with family and food.

We over indulged today but it was all tasty.

The morning started with a brunch after church.

Sticky buns, fruit cups, mimosas and tea or coffee. It was only 31F at 10 AM so the hot beverages went well.

The main course for dinner was a pork roast wrapped in bacon. Here it is pre-oven.

Post oven this is the roast and the potato dish - Potatoes Romanov. A sinfully rich potato casserole with sour cream, cream cheese and cheddar cheese for the sauce. Both are resting prior to serving - the roast to redistribute the juices prior to carving and the potatoes to cool down.

This is the meal plated and served. The roast, corn on the cob, potatoes and sausage stuffing. It was very good.

We relaxed after dinner but eventually had room for dessert. A triple chocolate mousse cake served with tea.
If you look closely at the plate at the left of the pic you see a purchased pastry. My wife does not like the mousse   Huh

Hope you all enjoyed the day.

You do realize these pictures constitute cruel and unusual punishment, don't you? Tongue

Everything looks delicious, Phil.

If you leave their house hungry on a Holiday, it's your own fault.
This was the spread there this afternoon.

No pics on this end but our day consisted of:
