veggie bites like mini quiches .
pasta with Italian sausages in the sauce .
chicken osso buco
green salad, bread rolls
home fried potatoes with onions and bell peppers .
after all of this we have fruit .
having melons and pineapple .
rum cake .
I know it's a lot of food .... but that is the way Italian families eat ..
I don't do that when I am by myself
I actually eat very little now . ..
probably will not be able to eat everything .. haaaaaa lol..
have a great weekend everybody .

the day after Easter in Italy .. it's still a holiday .. called PASQUETTA ,whiuch means little Easter . nobody works today .. everything is closed .. what the tradition is a picnic , usually bring leftovers and eat in the park or the mountains ..
I really miss that tradition .. wish they had it here too!

EASTER is this coming sunday ! is everybody celebrating ? what are your plans for EASTER? are you cooking or going over friends or family ?
I am planning an Easter brunch for my kids and family! I love to do brunches on holidays
I usually do breakfast food and appetizers , fruit and desserts .
I have one granddaughter she is too big to believe in the EASTER bunny anymore , so I don't make her a basket , but I do have gifts for her that I put in a gift bag . I have just one daughter and I have a gift bag for her too . the bags are already ready .
hope everyone has a wonderful day , whatever you are doing ! be happy !

in ITALY is very popular . they really celebrate it .,
all women receive these beautiful yellow flowers called mimosa .
I think it should be more recognized here too, cause it is a beautiful tradition!

I love it .. soo nice the oven is soo much bigger than the one I had .I can bake more things at the same time ..
first thing I baked in my new oven..was one of my favorite recipe from JAP, a crustless zucchini quiche .. I love that and I really missed making it ..the second thing was my famous rum cake .

I bake a lot , so i really miss using my oven . I bake a lot of food too , not just talking about sweets .
so I had to buy a new oven. I don't have it yet . it will get delivered this sat . cant wait to get it .
it's really nice , convection oven , Maytag and it's stainless steel . it was on sale and I really got a great deal.
I am excited about getting a new stove/oven . I cook and bake a lot .. so it is very important for me .
have a great day everyone!
