Happy Easter!

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word. And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him. Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

Bible: Matthew, 28. 6

Speaking of Easter, we made Easter Cookies yesterday (a recipe from our wonderful "Cookies" cookbook). The cookies weren't very good, so I'm not going to copy the recipe here, but one ingredient for the cookie was "candied citrus peel". What the heck? I've never seen a recipe with that ingredient before, and Kroger wasn't even close to having such a thing. We substitituted some minced dried fruit for it. Have you ever seen candied citrus peel before? And why would someone decide that citrus peel is something that should be candied?

I think Candied citrus peel is that yucky stuff that people put in christmas fruit cakes. Thanks for the bible guote. Matthew is very poetic. I'll be hoping that your business trips are pleasant and benefital.

Speaking of the Bible, I have a reading recommendation for you. It's called "Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal".

Here's a link to Amazon:

Of course, it's completely heretical, but in a hilarious and unoffensive way.
