Out of the Blue

Happy Easter Sunday to all who are celebrating!

We had a lovely dinner with the family last night. Today we celebrate Easter in a non-traditional manner with a cookout. I appreciate Cutter's suggestion that the most appropriate way to break in the grill would be with steaks, but they aren't the ideal choice for a gathering that will involve four people who don't eat red meat (one of whom may be reluctant about that situation to boot), so we have a simple menu of chicken wings & breasts and hamburgers accompanied by a salad and some potatoes and grilled veggies, with a nice fresh pineapple to grill for desert. Okay, I just made myself hungry.

R.I.P.: Veteran newsman Mike Wallace dead at 93.
