Easter lunch and more puzzling

Jigsaw puzzle update:

I don’t think we’ll get this finished by the end of the long weekend on Monday night!

Today being Easter Sunday, we had a lunch with my wife’s family. Just six of us, since one nephew and girlfriend had gone down the coast for the long weekend, while the other nephew and girlfriend were actually departing Norway today for their move to New Zealand.

Lunch is a traditional roast: lamb, vegetables, with gravy. I’m not a big fan of gravy though, and my wife’s mother has learnt to bring out things like mustard and pickles for me, which I much prefer. Afterwards of course there was plenty of chocolate, plus a delicious cannoli cake that my brother-in-law had made.

Easter dessert

The cake was so good that I asked where the recipe was from, and he said it was from the Smitten Kitchen website. I’m going to try making this some time to share with my friends on a games night. (And I just noticed you can see Scully in the background, top left corner of that photo.)

Now it’s well after dinner time and I haven’t eaten anything because I’m still full from the lunch…

  1. Did you know that (according to Wikipedia), cannoli may have originated as a fertility symbol, invented by Arab concubines (in Sicily)?

    1. Huh… hadn’t seen that before.

      Given the origins of most things, it’s not implausible. 🙂

  2. So, you can doom yourself by telling your m-i-l that she served you traditional symbols concubinage and fertility. But you’re too smart to actually do that.
