Easter, as I’ve often said, is a secular occasion for us: a time for special food and getting together with family. In a good year, I might sing with Middle Aunt at some of the services. Mostly, the food is what it’s all about. YoungB is reading aloud from La Cucina Triestina as I write (we’re trying some slightly different recipes this year). Tomorrow he and Dr B will make struccolo (the recipe here is nothing like the real thing but looks quick and easy and is probably very tasty if you want to get an idea of what I’m on about) and perhaps crostoli (try this for size). However you spend your long weekend, may it be a safe and enjoyable one.
