EASTER ARRIVES1

Easter buffet is an annual event at Inntiquity. Leslie searches out family favorites such as Carrot Cake, Wild Berry cobblers, Spinach soufle, Baked ham with orange sauce, Leg of lamb with basil and lemon juice basting, 3 kinds of deviled eggs, Sausage Sun Dried Tomato Egg Bake, 3 kinds of salads, Salmon poached in white wine, Vegetarian lasagna, Fresh asparagus in lemon butter, Wild Rice Pilaf, Mashed potatoes with chives and sour cream, Fresh baked Rolls and Ice tea , Lemonade and coffee. I was drafted to make the Cole slaw, but we used an old cobbler ctust that relieved me of pie crust duty.
We enjoy seeing members of our community that normally we don't encounter. The weather is promising to be lovely. We want to show off our daffodils that line the drive so beautifully. Some of our tulips are showing off as well. George is replacing one of our magnolias and some of our spring blooming trees that did not survive our heavy frosts.
Wonderful odors are floating in from the kitchen. I must check to see if the cats have been fed as it is still pretty cold outside. I may have to help set up tomorrow's buffet. Happy Easter for all of you.
