Easter dinner, Down Neck Newark, 2009

It's not the same one we ate there 50 years ago, that's for sure. But I'll bet it's dang good.

"... Herminio Lopes, who owns the Lopes Sausage Company in Newark ... has also shipped sausages to the White House."

Obama will be the first U.S. president to attend a White House Seder ... and his family will mark the beginning of Passover with a Seder at the White House with friends and staff. The Jerusalem Post notes that Thursday’s event is “believed to be the first White House Seder attended by an American president.”

It’s good President Obama is doing this. I have always welcomed the opportunity to participate in rituals and observances practiced by faiths and cultures other than my own. Horizons are for broadening. -- April 8th, 2009 at 10:46 am

Obama has shown more class in 8 weeks than Bush showed in 8 years. He returns from the Muslim world, and he joins in the Jewish Passover. I expect he will attend a christian church on Sunday. -- April 8th, 2009 at 10:49 am


And I thought this would be about Easter food traditions. For our clan Easter is Cannoli time. Light, crispy shells, filled with a custardy, ricotta cheese mixture, with nuggets of chocolate/almond within, covered with a light dusting of powdered sugar. A chilled late harvest wine pairs nicely. Bon appetit.

I love great food at Easter. Sometimes I enjoy great food for thought too, like the food for thought contained in this song:

It's an old spiritual number covered by myriad artists over the years, including Johnny Cash. While I'm most compared to Johnny Cash in other songs I've written and/or recorded, I think Andrae Crouch may be the one that influenced my treatment of this song:

Were You There (When They Crucified My Lord)?
