My Easter Menu for April 2020. This is a crazy time for everyone. The one thing driving me now is my family, my children, so I am going to cook on Sunday for them and give praise and thanks to God and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I don’t talk about religion at all here and I’m not going to all of a sudden get preachy. As a Christian, I do recognize and celebrate the significance of Easter Sunday (and Good Friday). I grew up in a Christian household and we, as a family, went to church together every Sunday. My husband, Paul, is also a Christian. We both believe in God, in his grace and in Jesus Christ. We always went to church together and somewhere along the way, maybe about two years ago, we got busy and stopped going to church altogether.
2020 was our year to go back. We started this new year by visiting three local churches here in PA and we were going to visit a local Korean church and one more before deciding which one to go to. And then this happened. I find it incredible what local churches are doing, churches all over the world really. Zoom meetings, virtual worship from home, whatever they can do to keep teaching, stay connected and give hope.
When you visit a church for the first time, most churches take down your personal information; especially if you are sending your kids into the children’s ministry. you fill stuff out so they have your family information and email address. One local church we visited, when all of this started, has been emailing us, one email came from the senior pastor. Anyway, it’s nice. It’s refreshing to see really. People reaching out, checking in on others, staying connected and giving hope.
I am not living by example by any means. I simply wanted to give encouragement for those who need it. I need it. The human race is still good. We do still care about each other. We are still connected, supporting, teaching, caring and loving each other. And we will get through this.
OUR EASTER MENU
Being here in our temporary apartment has been a huge adjustment for me. We don’t have a proper table to sit at with chairs. We have a Korean table where you sit on the floor and eat. We still have unpacked boxes everywhere. We moved from a 3,900 square foot house to a small 3-bedroom apartment and put 95% of our furniture in storage while our new house is being built. That house is on hold but I am praying that construction will begin in May, next month.
At any rate, I am thankful we are healthy, we are together and my family has food. We might not have a proper dining room table to sit at but we will eat well on Sunday and give thanks. This is what we are making and some dinner ideas for you all:
Herb Scones or
Parmesan Rosemary Thyme Scones
If I can get beef tenderloin filets, I’m making this
Or steaks, here’s how to cook steak in the oven.
Mashed Potatoes for Phoebe
A simple green salad

We couldn’t be with our daughter this year because of covid-19 so we both had similar meals we made and bought the same tablecloth and cooked at the same time so that we were able to eat together via phone. It actually worked out okay and we were able to be together for Easter dinner.
Hi Marsha! Thank you for sharing that! That is so lovely!!! We facetime’d with my parents and sister and brother’s family. Hoping all of this ends soon and we are all able to see our families!
