Easy as an Easter Sunday 

Easter Sunday from rowdyman on Vimeo.

Here's an Easter card in lieu of a printed one. Despite another grey Toronto day, the atmosphere was sunny and bright at Bec, Andy and Gina's. A finely wrought feast was set with all seated bringing forth each their own contribution. From spaghetti squash, ratatouille, sprouts (with bacon and without), salads, wine, fresh baked bread1, some of the most tender, fall-off-the-bone ribs you'll ever have and finished with an assortment of chocolates, cookies and one "I spy with my little eye, some of Nonna's famous apple pie". As evidence, I submit for your viewing pleasure the above videola picture-gram. Set to the tune of a duet of Andy and Gina's practiced hand, a fine afternoon was had by all on this day of our Lord, two-thousand-three.

FN 1: From your author, the bread I made, for once, turned out very well. I think it's been well over a year since any baking I've made has resulted in anything with success. What did I do this time? Only the bread knows for sure. I did use a fresh pack of instant yeast. I let it rest a little over 12-14 hours. I allowed a second rising (only appropriate for Easter, no?) for about 2 hours. I left the oven to heat an extra amount of time. I baked it for 30 minutes covered and 5 minutes uncovered. I very nearly burned it, but instead it turned out fine. As I said, only the bread knows for certain.
