There’s no time or ability to produce an Easter Bread this year so we ordered one from a local bakery.
The primary order-taker was choking on a piece of babka while I was trying to order it and was communicating by impromptu sign language to a willing but unknowledgeable young girl. The young girl was lovely but in over her head beyond weighing a bag full of sprinkle cookies. So I pre-paid $5.25 for a three-egg Easter Bread and who can predict what will happen when I attempt to go pick it up on Saturday morning?
I might be reduced to ordering commercial Easter Bread but by jiminey we are going to have a homemade Butter Lamb.*
- *Note: this year’s Butter Lamb will have plain butter wool over a sage butter base.
UPDATE: Easter Breads galore at the Italian bakery.
St. Joseph watches over the red & white string:
