Italian Easter Dinner 2016

Monday, March 28, 2016
This year I made 7 pounds of gnocchi for Easter Dinner and a ton more food than normal.

It was a great day with the family and a very special day.

We are awaiting our second grandchild in around 4 weeks from now. Her name will be Talia.

Antonio is going to be a wonderful loving big brother.

I was blessed this year to have a great gathering with family. My two brothers John and Luke, my brother John's two sons Matthew and Devin.

My kids Chad and Curt, Jenni my daughter in law and Antonio my precious grandson (who of course I am holding him below.)

Wait till you see the cutest suit he had on earlier in the day before dinner.

I will post the links to the recipes as they are all highlighted for you to be directed them all.

I hope you all had a blessed day and I am very grateful for this beautiful family I have.
