Happy Easter/Passover and what's cooking?

Happy Easter all you Cook's Talk folks!  I hope you're all cooking up a great feast.  We're having a combination Easter and Passover, as I invited a mixed group of friends.  I'm making tea-smoked salmon, a favorite back from The Challenge:

Also gimlets!

Hope you all have a great one!

Cheers, Jen

How was your feast?  I'd

How was your feast?  I'd enjoy hearing about it.

Our group is mixed so we usually celebrate Easter and Passover together.  This year I worked (boring story) so no cooking for me.

Hey Dashx, it was great-- the salmon was excellent and my guests brought almost everything else, so there wasn't much work.  We got out grandma's good china and feasted-- the passover-celebrating guest brought flourless chocolate cake and blood orange ice cream, wow.  Many gimlets were consumed!

I made Dorrie Greenspan's lemon barley pilaf from her French Table book-- that was okay, but a little dull I thought.  Then on Monday, I mixed the barley with some spices, veg, and broth, then added the salmon for leftover soup-- that was really good, I love barley in soup.

Too bad you had to work-- did/will you have a make-up feast?

Cheers, Jen
