Hope you all had a lovely Easter/ start of Passover. Hubby decided he had to have lamb for Easter, so we spontaneously went out to eat. Ended up at J&R Steak House (which will always be Big Barry’s to me). He had a nice Easter special with rack of lamb. I noticed they charged a dollar more than the big sign outside said. Our young waiter actually had to go outside and read the sign. The computer was set wrong, and apparently they were mischarging all day and nobody noticed. I ordered the 24 oz prime rib, of which I ate a quarter after having great lobster bisque (was truly surprised at how good it was), pickles, and some of Hubby’s salad. Will have a lovely dinner tonight with the garlic mashed potatoes I barely touched. Anyway, I had an epiphany there. I realized that kids think that Easter is when people celebrate the Easter bunny finally laying it’s blue and purple eggs. Works for me.

If you’re in the masrket for ceramic bakeware, QVC charges a bit for their Temptations, but they get great reviews. The way to save money is to pick the set you really want, and go to QVC every day and type in the search box “as is temptations” Those are returns and demo sets, and a good amount of the price is taken off them. Unfortunately UPS dropped the first set I ordered, and really wanted, but I got this set instead, not as many pieces, but then, less to store. Saved $16. I’m just a little sad I didn’t notice that they don’t have handles or lips. I’ll figure it out. All the other sets I’ve seen do.
