Despite waking up in the wee hours of Easter morning with an awful sore throat, I had one of the nicest Easters I can remember.
I haven't been sick in about a year, even though I've been surrounded by sick people at work and at home (my husband is just getting over his third cold). So I've been pleased at how well my immune system has been warding off illness ... until now. After a hot shower early Sunday morning, I began feeling well enough to attend the first Mass of the day at 7:30. After church, my husband's mother came over for brunch and I felt pretty good until noon, when I crashed and slept for three hours straight. Ugh.
Our brunch was delicious, if I do say so. I served a broccoli-cheddar quiche using this recipe from Everyday Food, a simple salad with blue cheese dressing, mimosas, and, for dessert, a very tasty lemon-ginger Bundt cake, another Everyday Food recipe. As you can tell from the photo below, I did not make my own crust. Rather, I used a pre-made spelt flour crust from Wholly Wholesome, purchased at Whole Foods. I think this crust is my new favorite. It was perfect for a quiche and doesn't contain any preservatives or hydrogenated oils. It stayed crisp and was delicious.
I hope you and your family had a wonderful Easter day, whatever your beliefs may be. Wishing you peace,
