What is the best meal or best food that you have eaten all year? Did you make it? Did you get it at a restaurant? Do your best to describe the food and the experience with us.
The problem is I’ve had so many good food experiences and picking one is hard. At home, Easter was pretty good. I cooked lamb with anchovies, garlic and lemon with new potatoes, peas and spinach. This was followed by pavlova. It wasn’t just the food though. On Easter morning, some of us from Grace had gone to Hampstead Heath for an Easter Sunrise service and then back to Gill’s for breakfast (another great meal!) then home for a sleep. Later on Kathy, Adam, Dean, Gill and my mum came for lunch.
It was a great afternoon of eating, drinking and talking but it was more than that. I realise looking back on it that it was about the joy of being at the table with people who knew that Easter was something more than a bank holiday and a chance to eat chocolate eggs. It was being with a community of people that knew like I did that Easter is a celebration of when everything changed because He was dead and now He lives. Apart from that morning on the Heath (Mum and Dean weren’t there) we didn’t talk about it, we didn’t pray together or say grace or do anything overtly Christian but we knew.
The food was great too..
