Some member’s of Richard’s family are coming for Easter dinner. I’ve had a really fun time today creating an Easter Menu. For my own enjoyment, I sometimes make up a printed menu. Here’s what I’ve come up with. . . Originally, I had planned on having an Easter barbeque, with chicken, beans and coleslaw. Now that might seem out […]
