Hello sweet friends!
This is Holy Week and I set up a table for Rosary and for Easter Sunday coming up.
Here is what we used to do Easter Sunday when we were kids, my two brothers and I:
We always went to the city, (Manhattan) for Mass at ST. PATRICK'S CATHEDRAL, to watch the Easter parade, to see the Rockets Spring Show and have a late lunch, with our parents. For us kids it was always a treat when dad took us to 'the city' as New Yorkers call it. Dad drove us there and enjoyed it too. Such great memories I treasure dearly.
As many of you know I lived in Astoria-Queens.
Besides the fact that the custom in NY was that we had to wear a brand new outfit for Easter Sunday and my mom and me wore hats. She looked like a blond beautiful Jacqueline Kennedy in her pillbox style hat and her channel type suit, the style of the moment.
The custom here in Ecuador is, to have a special 'hardy harvest soup,' with grains and Cod stew, which you also add to the soup in a small portion. Really delish, although I'm not crazy about grains, but it is quite yummy.
There are small hand pies to go along with it, plantain chips, hard boil eggs; all these things you can add to the soup if you wish and these would be the only meal.
Dessert is usually 'Rice Pudding.'
Now, here is my table setting for this Easter Sunday and for the Rosary there after, the following Wednesday.
HE HAS RISEN TO THE FATHER'S SIDE TO REIGN FOR ETERNITY FOR US, HIS CHILDREN.
MANY BLESSINGS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES THIS EASTER SUNDAY.
HE HAS RISEN...ALLELUJAH !
|The centerpiece inside my clotch I created it religious for an Easter luncheon.|
|I mixed and matched with yellow and green dinner plates, for a Spring pastel look, along with pink napkins, where I placed in each a small bird's nest with tiny quarrel eggs, lol..|
|The water glasses are pink and lilac. The one stems come in various colors even black.|
|I used my old big Canon camera and the pics came out sort of darkish, it seems.|
I lent my daughter Sofia my new small Canon camera for her trip to Europe with her family.
