Easter Dinner

I totally forgot to make a post about Easter Dinner so here it comes. We went to my parents and as usual we had a lot of food. The latest years my mother has calmed down and doesn’t cook as much as when we were kids, but she still makes a lot of food. So we ended up with an enormous amount of food to take home :-) But it’s one of the best things with holidays, when you get home and then fill the fridge with all delicous leftowers that you got from “home”.

Here is everything that we ate this Easter Dinner. Earlier years we had even more, but we don’t eat as much nowadays :-)

    Thank you both, I’ll forward the compliments :-) If there is any demand I can publish recipes on the dishes that I use to do, i.e. potatoe salad, cheesecake, chocolate cake and mushroom sauce :-)

    The cheesecake on the bottom looks very yummy. If that is homemade I request a recipe.

    Dagmar, what a fantastic feast, how did your mom manage!? I especially love the look of the Salatka z rakami, fillet of pork with mushroom sauce and the fish in sauce. Not forgetting the beautifully decorated Tort czekoladowy! I have never tasted a polish sausage before, I wonder what that taste like.
