We had a really good Easter this year

We were invited to share Easter dinner at my Bro's home...along with his wife's family.  It was the best food I have eaten in a long time. Garry's wife Joan is Ukrainian and when they make a meal....it's the real deal.  I counted 13 different dishes.  Turkey, Dressing, Cranberry sauce,  Pickerel (breaded fish), Meatballs with gravy, Ham, Mashed potatoes, then two different Ukraine dishes both were divine... one was rolled up pasta with a whipping cream sauce...and the other was a baked Perishky I think she called it...yum.  Holubtsi, Perogies, Ceaser salad, coleslaw, and pickled eggs.  I might have missed one or two....yikes....Cheesecake for dessert!!!

I wish I would have taken  a picture of the dinner table before the vultures started to circle.

I love listening to Joan and her sister talk about how much their mom used to make for Easter on the farm....apparently they had huge roasters full of all that I just mentioned and more. 

It was nice to sit down at the table with a large family around you ... and partake...very nice.  I'm still dreaming of the Pickerel fish (walleye) to you Mericans...it was so good.

SIL also fosters little babies with FAS...and I got meet the two little 3 month old tykes yesterday.  It is so sad that these beautiful children will never grow up to be normal adults because their mother drank too much. 

 That's my niece holding #1
This is # 2.....they are such good babies....but what will come of them.  So very sad.

Happy Easter my friends.

Taking care of TWO babies AND cooking an Easter feast--WOW. It would be hard for me to give those babies up--If I were a foster mother, I might turn into a baby "hoarder".

From what you listed, I wish I had been at your Easter feast rather than my own Family Dinner. I didn't fix near the spread!

My prayer for those babies is to be adopted by loving childless parents who will love them. I hope they are eligible for adoption.
