Do you know where your Turkey Pants are?

Eating is not merely a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship.
It is of great importance to the morale.
~Elsa Schiaparelli

The Easter Feast is coming.  For some it will arrive this Friday, for us Saturday, for others it will be Sunday.  None the less, you better find your Turkey Pants (or Ham pants, or Goose Pants--call them whatever you will!!)

Big family dinners have always been one of my favourites, not just for the Turkey and fixings, but for the company.  When else can you indulge so many of your senses?  When else can you ignite your mind with curious conversation and laugh until you think you will cry?  

I hope you enjoy your Easter feast this weekend, and enjoy the company as much as I will...

~so here is a breakdown of some of the foods of our feast this weekend...Turkey and Stuffing, with Turnip  of course...Broccoli Casserole, mashed potatoes and Cucumber Salad.

And who could forget the Cranberries??

Spiced Cranberries
1pkg (12 ounces) fresh or frozen cranberries
1 3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp each cinnamon and ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon each salt, ground ginger and ground cloves

Combine all ingredients and bring to a boil.  Simmer uncovered until the berries pop and the mixture is thickened (about 30 min).  Cool and refridgerate until chilled
