Happy spring! I'm sitting in a cafe on campus while it rains outside, reminiscing about all the glorious food from the holidays this past weekend. Have you ever been to a Polish Easter celebration? This year was my first and I have to say it was pretty spectacular.
I was up in the bay area for a few days visiting with family and friends. My roomate's family also lives nearby and graciously invited me to their Easter brunch on Sunday. My family doesn't really celebrate Easter, so I was excited to see how other people go about it.
Speaking as a college student, it is always nice to be fed a home cooked meal. Here we're talking about a home cooked holiday brunch, which makes it ten times better! Besides for the platters of cold cuts and homemade shortbread desserts, there were over 5 different types of horseradish, hardboiled eggs, vegetable salads, and the traditional babka. Everything was so good! It was a lot of fun to meet a lot of new people and hear all of their easter stories while we munched on everything.
It was a rainy day but we managed to get out and walk a bit at the farmers market. Moraga is such a quaint town and their farmer's market definitely was the same. Though it was on the small side, the produce was beautiful and everyone was so cheery (probably because of the holiday).
I would like to give a big thank you to Kasia's parents for hosting such a great celebration! The day was absolutely perfect and it made the trip back to school later that day not so bad. I hope everyone else's easter was just as fun and filled with love and family and friends!
