Today is Mom's birthday. She passed at 89 and I still think she is sitting in her room, waiting for me to bring her something sweet. It's been three years, and I miss her so much.
And speaking of sweets, I will try my best to NOT participate in the crowds on Monday at my two local chocolate makers' half off sale. But I'm not making any promises. Dad and I used to stand outside in line with the crowds and load our baskets with nut eggs and solid chocolate treats. You can't beat our Daffin's and Philadelphia chocolates. But just in case I regress, I ate a bunch of this...
I LOVE Waldorf salad. I'll be making stuffed cabbage tomorrow. Easter was Mom's favorite holiday and her parents were from Poland so we're doing Polish food. My Dad's parents were from Italy and that's usually our Christmas meal. Bolbaki (sweet poppy seed and bread) was my favorite dessert from my husband's Slovak grandmother and I usually make that around Easter, but not this year. I end up eating a LOT of it and just in case I'm in line Monday morning, I'll refrain from baking.
Hope you all have a joyous Easter.
