Happy Easter!! (2019)

No, you’re not having a flashback to four months ago.

I just realized that I never posted the meal for this past Easter.

Which was a shame, because I made a delicious Tuscan bread and vegetable soup called “ribollita” for starters …

… baked lamb chops seasoned with rosemary and garlic, risotto and asparagus for the main and vanilla “cake for one” filled and frosted with a vanilla buttercream and decorated with Easter jimmies for dessert. A simple lemonade spiked with raspberries and blackberries to wash it down.

It’s been so long since I made the soup that I can’t remember which adaptation I used of the four recipes I have saved in my Italian folder. Based on the pictures of the ingredients in the photo folder for the soup, I’m guessing this one. Though I didn’t use canned beans but cooked cannellini beans from dry.

Home made croutons were used both in the soup itself as a thickener and, seasoned, as a garnish that was stirred in just before serving. If you like your croutons crunchy, serve a bowl of the croutons on the table and let each diner add their own.

 

 

It was a great meal … even in retrospect.

  1. We are traveling in Europe and when I first clicked on your blog, I thought something was wrong with the internet connection here. 😊 Your Easter meal looks delicious and would be great anytime of the year.

  2. You’re so lucky to be visiting all those amazing places. I understand the time disconnect.

    Thank you for the comment on the meal. I’ve been cooking up a storm for the last 2 months and posting none of it. Forgot most of the tiny details. Keep meaning to post pics while memories of details are fresh. 🙂

    Hopefully, I’ll get the upcoming Thanksgiving meal up in a timely fashion.
