This Easter, I have a busy day ahead of me.
I plan to make myself a pancake in the shape of a bunny.
I plan to watch Easter Parade on Turner Classic Movies at 9:00 AM.
I plan to run 7 miles before lunch.
I plan to get bit by the Spring-cleaning bug and tidy up my apartment while listening to new episodes of my favorite podcasts.
No searching or rolling of eggs. No filling a basket with treats. No bringing a dish to brunch, or lunch, or dessert.
If I was coming to your house today, I’d most likely bring something a bit un-traditional in terms of holiday celebration. I might suggest an Italian feast covered in marinara, or a Mexican inspired FIESTA complete with many margaritas.
I’ve been staring recipes from great food blogs for a while now, and if I was headed to your place today, I would no doubt be taking inspiration from these great recipes.

Of course, after running seven miles there is a slight possibility that instead I’d show up with something looking like this:
But you’d be okay with that, right?
