And I say it was epic because, as usual, we hosted Easter dinner for my family. This year, however, we outdid ourselves.
No. Seriously. I think we raised the bar. There’s no way we will top what we did this year unless we win the jackpot and fly my entire family to Hawaii, first class and hire high-end catering with only the most expensive vintage wine.
Oh yes… followed by a private Polynesian dance performance. And massages on the beach for all!
The menu consisted of:
Italian Spring Salad – tossed with Bocconcini, Heirloom Tomatoes and Prosciutto
French-cut Marinated and Grilled Lamp Chops
Smoked Rainbow Trout
Roasted Leg of Lamb
Tri-Colour Sweet Potato and Bacon Casserole
And everything turned out PERFECTLY! Plus, I paired dinner with an amazing Shiraz from Australia. It helped it was 15% alcohol level.
To back up, the weekend started off with a 1 hr and 20 min hike. It was semi-challenging due to all the constant up and down climbs. However, very much worth it because, well, as you can see, we needed to start working off our dinner even before we ate our Easter dinner the next night.
Overall, it was a wonderful long weekend!
But what made this year’s Easter shindig of ours was epic was the following conversation:
Dad: When marijuana becomes legal next year, can you get some?
Me: I suppose. Why?
Dad: I want to try it.
