We had a wonderful time with my husband's parents visiting the past few days.

Now this coming weekend ...we'll be hosting Easter dinner.

The meal will be the first in a long time...my entire immediate family is getting together for a holiday celebration.

You see...last Christmas was nice...but for serious health reasons...

...we weren't all there.

Now...

...it's time to celebrate! :)

Leek, Cherry and Goat Cheese Pizza ~ With Spring Breathes New Life

While contemplating Sunday's menu (and working in the yard)...I made these Leek, Cherry (preserve) and Goat Cheese Pizzas on Soy Pita Bread from Trader Joe's.

Meant solely for inspiration (because you get the idea)...the combination of flavors is spectacular!   (Just be sure to cook up the leek in a pan first then top and bake your pizza!)  They're SO DELICIOUS...they may just make this weekend's spread!
