Easter Dinner in Venice
If your family is anything like ours, Easter Dinner is usually a big celebration with family and friends. A nice honey baked ham, mashed potatoes, candied yams, asparagus with hollandaise sauce… and of course, deviled eggs after the kids have finished with coloring them. We love watching the little ones hunt for the plastic eggs in the yard and sharing their treats with each other. This year is a lot different with everyone practicing social distancing, but we can still get awesome family meals from our local favorites!
