He is risen!

This day has always been extra special -- the Feast of the Risen Christ! Once more, we're given the blessing of celebrating the Greatest of all gifts.

Mary Ann and I are staying home and will celebrate quietly. I baked challah bread this morning, a traditional Jewish sabbath bread. Mine doesn't look quite as pretty as the one pictured in the cookbook, but it will do just fine. It smelled wonderful as it was baking.

Mary Ann has been working very hard in her store. I don't think most people can possibly appreciate the enormous amount of work that goes into a one-person retail operation. She is the buyer, inventory manager, shipping and receiving chief, manager, interior decorator, receptionist, cashier, advertising manager, publicist, chief cook and bottle washer. The store reflects her hard work. Yesterday, I heard several people comment on how much they love to shop at Ebabe's.

So today, on this special feast, she may not be able to rest completely, but we will have a nice meal of roast pork, sweet potatoes, broccoli with cheese sauce, and some condiments.

And we'll take time to thank our Creator for the Greatest Gift of all.

That bread looks delicious! Challah bread makes great french toast, too.

Happy Easter!
