Our Easter


Holidays are hard for people who have no family nearby. That includes us. This year we invited some friends who are in the same boat. And you know what? We had a great time! I made a simple meal- turkey breast, mashed potatoes, tossed salad and boiled brussel sprouts. For dessert my husband baked his famous angel food cake served with fresh raspberries and coffee. We ate, talked and laughed a lot. What did you do for the holiday?
