The sun was out. We played tennis. We took walks - in the park and on the beach. We talked and heard more about David's classes, his upcoming trip to Florence, skiing, and college life. We skyped with my parents and talked to my brother and his family on the phone. We visited Gregg's parents.
I had quiet time to read the Easter Scriptures, since church is not high on the list of priorities for the guys.
On our beach walk on Easter Sunday, something big happened: Gregg found his FIRST EVER Indian bead.

We went out for dinner Saturday to The Loft in Poulsbo. They featured fresh halibut, with Dungeness Crab, asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes. Gregg ordered that, and I had a taste...ohhh, my.
For Easter dinner, we made some of David's favorite dishes. I prepared a potato dish which I found in Edible Seattle magazine. Does your city have an "Edible" magazine? Apparently, it's available in a variety of places. Last month's issue was being offered for free at the ferry terminal, so I picked up a copy, and found a number of interesting articles and recipes in it. I've been wanting to try the Yukon Gold Potato Gratin with chevre, kale and onions, so that's what I made, along with David's requested kalbi ribs and "Strawberry Pretzel Salad" (which is really a sort of cheesecake).
Being me, I didn't specify Yukon Gold potatoes, so Gregg picked out baby (red) new potatoes, which we both like. No big deal, I thought. It was such fun doing the prep-cooking! But I will say that the recipe turned out to be much less "gratin" than I expected. Was it the different kind of potato? I don't know. It needed more liquid, so I won't recommend the recipe as is; I would want to tweak it a bit by adding more milk.
