Keepers Shortlist: Easter Sunday

  • In an email report from my mother: “We’ve not seen any great number of ants in the house. Just the daring few that show up in the bath tub and then get drowned for their audacity.”
  • Watching my two year old grandson crack open an easter egg, carefully pick out the hidden chocolate chips and eat them one by one, all the while closing his eyes, and saying “mmmmmm” with his whole body.
  • Dollar store notebooks
  • Onion-wine pot roast (Day 1) followed by Italian Beef Ragu (Day 2) – from the Cook Once Eat Twice cookbook.
  • Cooking the afore-mentioned wine-soaked pot roast while wearing the red-and-white polka-dot apron I bought in Madrid
