Easter in the NJ
today i went to NJ to my grandma's house for Easter. as a city-dweller it is always interesting to be in a house with approx. 15 people. multiple conversations, tv's blaring, kids running around... it's also strange to have sooo much food around. my apartment has water, cereal and occasionally some chips in the cabinets. the spread today consisted of : mini quiches, pigs in a blanket, shrimp cocktail -- turkey, corn, rice & beans, terrific mac & cheese, and phenomenal sweet potato souffle. note: i have not even gotten to dessert. gatherings at my dad's side of the family are always filled with laughter, intelligent conversations, and your usual dose of gossip -- but always strange that my dad is not there.
