Notes from the Heart...

What do bunnies, eggs and Peeps have to do with Easter?  Susan Nye has the
answers for you in this week's feature,
Understanding Easter.  She also provides a
delightful spring recipe (although she admits its not an Easter tradition -- yet)  
Lemon Tart.

I am off to Brazil at the end of this week to visit my extended family.  I am
bringing our 16 year old daughter who has never been to Brazil -- we are both
looking forward to sunshine, samba, and the warm hospitality of the
Cariocas of
Rio.  This newsletter will take a little hiatus while I am gone.  The next issue --
Mother's Day, May 10th.  

Dear Heart...

Your recipe for Red Flannel Hash was not the way we made it, and I still make it
today.  I truly think mine is better tasting and healthier.  Here's the recipe:

Cook a boiled dinner with shank portion ham instead of corned beef.  Add
Cabbage, turnip, potatoes, onion, carrots after the ham has boiled for about 45
minutes, cook until done.  Next day, chop up ham and vegetables and put in a fry
pan with a little butter.  Add a fresh cooked beet, sliced.  Serve with vinegar, and
some good bread.  Yummy.  I grew up in Falmouth Maine.  (Dotty Lewis,

Editor's note:  Thanks, Dotty for a more authentic version of Red Flannel Hash!
We'll try that version next time!   Comments? Questions? Email me at:

hard to get rid of stuff.
