Easter run-down.
I'm getting all ready for Easter at my house. We're having Pork Loin Chops with Apples (from French Women don't Get Fat), steamed green beans, corn in butter sauce, mashed sweet potatoes, fresh rolls from the bakery across the street, some kind of sweet from there as well, and the super secret surprise dessert -- Caribbean Black Cake. Also known as Jamaican Fruit cake, also Caribbean Wedding cake.

I looked up a recipe, because Maxwell gave me a bottle of Black Fruit Wine from St. Vincent, one of the main ingredients aside from fruit and rum. But it was crazy complicated and involved. So I ordered one online. It came yesterday and is vacuum packed, and looks gorgeous! The thing I like about it is that the fruit is pureed, so no chunks, and no nuts. I think I might actually eat this fruit cake. I hate the American style cake with spiced, dried fruit and nuts. Blech...

So, we'll see.

It should be a fine affair. I'm also gonna rent a couple of videos to keep us busy since the nephew and parents are going to the in-laws for Easter. Total suckage... I was looking forward to playing with him, now that he actually plays.
