Well, as of today, I can say this Sunday will feature a nice leg of lamb. My (also Orthodox) coworker and his wife have generously agreed to share in the leftovers come Bright Monday.

A buddy sent me pictures of his first Leg of Lamb, roasted in his Pit Barrel Cooker.

My wife sent all of the Easter lasagna home with Cigarson and his fiancee. Then she commissioned me to make another lasagna.

Fun fact: Lasagna is my Christmas dish. I have no wife to commission more. My dad has been trying to move us to turkey and ham for Christmas now that his father has passed and he thinks he can start new traditions. We've told him to get stuffed.

Out of curiosity, is your father Orthodox as well? I know a few Serbian and Macedonian Orthodox in Italy---one of my best friends is Macedonian Orthodox, actually, and lives in Rome.

Nah. When my dad is anything, he's Baptist. It's one of those quirks of family history- extended paternal family is Catholic, my dad and his siblings are various stripe of Evangelical as were my grandparents. Out of me and my siblings 3/4 of us are Orthodox converts.

Thanks. Sorry if I intruded. I'm always intrigued by conversions within Christianity.

Maybe ham on the side? :D

No intrusion at all. I also find conversions intriguing and am always happy to tell stories.

Very small gathering. We’re worshiping in, then we feast. Roasted pork loin, glazed carrots, mashed potatoes, buttered mushrooms, and cake.

Oh, and deviled eggs. Can’t forget those.

Glazed Ham, potato salad, baked beans, green beans, baked corn, rolls, chocolate cake, carrot cake.

Will worship on line. No Sunday School tmrw.

Grilled ribeye here too along with some chicken breast. Green beans, asparagus, carrots, mashed potatoes, deviled eggs, and blue cheese stuffed olives for sides. Coconut cake and ambrosia for dessert.

Little Heath bars for dessert.

Cigars with Pipeson.

We didn't plan ahead and found all the sandwich shops were closed Easter morning so we had pb&j sandwiches at our mountain picnic. Burgers on the grill when we got home in the evening.

I made a cheesecake for a gathering of fellow church members. Alas, it is gone.
