Easter 2020!

Ahh, the joy of waking up on Easter Sunday morning and discovering the table magically adorned with flowers and gifts! We will let the pictures do the talking, from early morning to brunch to dinner.

Ordinarily, someone paints the Easter candle but a little paper, tape, and some colored markers suffice.

Thankfully we were able to finish brunch before noon- and so there was plenty of time to build up a late dinner appetite. This year we returned to Beef Wellington. Underneath that lush covering of Phyllo dough lies a beautiful fat-covered rib roast! IMG_4626
