Happy Spring

Coming from a non-religious Soviet culture, my family doesn't truly celebrate religious holidays. So you could call this dinner a "festive spring meal" or somesuch, where Russian holiday favorites ("herring in a fur coat," pickled mushrooms) and remnants of religious traditions (dyed eggs) mingle on the same table.

Mmm -- what a lovely spread. Happy Spring to you! We'll be celebrating Easter with my parents tomorrow, and I hope it will be similarly festive!

Your photos are really lovely, and very spring-like...and all the food looks great too! I've got to get on the stick and start making some Russian foods...

Lo-Thanks you! I hope you had a great Easter.

Rebecca--I actually don't cook Russian food all that often...80% of what I make isn't Russian. Which is probably why I don't blog all that much.

Tim-Thanks!
