Thread Name: BS: Easter Dinner 2024
Subject: RE: BS: Easter Dinner 2024
As a non-believer it is just dinner on Sunday, but I do love lamb and have a leg in the freezer, cut into a half-dozen double portions (for a meal and for leftovers for one). I also have a recently made batch of hummus and some good locally made pita in the freezer. A side of Basmati rice, yogurt sauce, and steamed spinach and I'm good to go with dinner, even if it isn't holiday related.

Ramadan has a little over a week left. It's something I'm aware of when I shop at the local Halal grocery because most of the store's customers are cooking for the evenings after sunset. The general atmosphere is more festive, a higher energy level, though there is no outward sign (that I can see or read, at any rate).

At the local Winco (an employee-owned grocery chain) there were full carts in line on Friday night when I was shopping; I spoke with one young woman who was indeed preparing for the Easter meal. She said the eggs were at home already, stashed out of sight and she would put them out for the kids before she went to bed.
