I am still kicking myself. I forgot to bring my camera to Easter dinner at my mom's. (hangs head in shame) And since the rest of my family hasn't advanced into the digital age I couldn't even borrow someone else's camera. The worst part is that all the food was so beautiful (bright green asparagus, pink poached salmon, deviled eggs with their sprinkling of red paprika) that it was probably the most photogenic meal I've eaten lately. Without the photos all I can do is tell you that we had quite the spread - the aforementioned roasted asparagus, poached salmon with dill sauce, deviled eggs, potato salad, rye bread, ham and kielbasa. For dessert my mom made cheesecake with raspberries and raspberry sauce that was quite decadent and delicious. All in all a fabulous meal.
Later this afternoon my father stopped by for a visit. This is the first time he's seen the new house. After an early dinner at my mom's we weren't very hungry, but dad still needed something for dinner.
SP has become quite the grill master so he grilled up some moist and flavorful pork chops. Dad isn't afraid of a little fat so I made him my loaded mashed potatoes (scallions, bacon, cheddar cheese and sour cream mixed into the mashed potatoes) and creamed spinach.
