Buona Pasqua

Buona Pasqua

You want to talk about confusing; here we go.

Easter Sunday is supposed to represent the resurrection of Jesus rising from the dead after three days. Somehow, probably a miracle, Jesus rolled back a 5 ton stone that closed off the tomb he was buried in and reappeared in a living form.

So how did we get from Jesus rising from the dead to a bunny that delivers so many eggs to the kids on the same day? Probably the same way that no one can explain how Santa with one set of reindeer can deliver billions of present in one night all over the world by himself. This same logic would also apply to the Hare that delivers colored eggs to so many homes. Both scenarios remain a mystery. I don’t even know where the furry little critter would get a pot big enough to boil all those eggs.

The perfect hard-boiled egg: put eggs in a pan, be careful not to crack them  – fill the pan with cold water – bring the water to a boil – simmer for 13 minutes – drain the water and run cold water over the eggs to stop them from cooking – let them sit for 10 minutes before pealing. Make sure to get all of the shell off the eggs. They are very hard on the teeth and even tougher swallow.

Jesus, bunny, eggs, it all doesn’t add up. How really cares how and when these conglomerations of half religious and half make believe stories were put together and who did it?

With all of the craziness going on in the world today it gives us a day when families get together, color eggs, the kids have an Easter egg hunt and just another excuse for the grownups to  eat and drink too much.

With some holidays and beliefs, just like in all religions; a person has to have blind faith.

Happy Easter to all of you Christians and egg lovers. I hope no one has rabbit for dinner; that may be a little over the top. If you do, make sure to get all the ” hair” off before cooking.

Don’t eat too much Honey Baked ham.

Cooking tip: Save a little bit of meat on the ham bone; the flavor of the bone makes a fantastic pot of Pasta Fagoli, it really adds flavor. I had to get us Italians in there somehow.

• 1 (16 ounce) package dried navy beans
• 1 meaty ham bone
• 10 cups water
• ½ pound of ground bulk sausage
• 1 (8 ounce) box elbow macaroni
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 1 onion, chopped
• 3 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 (16 ounce) can diced tomatoes
• 1 carrot, diced
• 1/2 teaspoon red pepper seeds, or to taste
• 1 cup water
• salt and pepper to taste
• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Brown your garlic and onion in the olive oil and remove from the pot – brown the ground sausage – add the garlic and onion, tomatoes’, water, carrots, salt and pepper, parsley, ham bone – beans.

Bring all of the ingredients to a boils – simmer at a low heat until the beans are to your taste
