It’s a holiday weekend. I offered to make lamb for Easter, but when Greg saw the rib roast at the grocer’s he asked for that instead. It’s fine by me. I’ll eat lamb, but it’s my least favorite meat. It tends to sit heavy on my stomach no matter how little of it I eat. Does anyone else feel that way about lamb or is it just me?

It’s a double holiday for me because Monday is my birthday. Traditionally, I rarely cook on my birthday so I made that day’s menu easy for any husband to make. Besides, he can always take me out for dinner.

It’s another week of running around like crazy people. Three more weeks like this and then I can relax for a little while.

    Happy Easter and an early Happy Birthday, Maria!
    Big hugs!!!

    I don’t get to eat much lamb so I can’t really speak on how it sits on my belly. Mainly a chicken and pork loan family.
