A Striking Resemblance and Easter Pie

Mom bought a painting on ebay recently. She loves the painting and it reminds her of someone we all know!

What do you think?

Isn't the resemblance too cool?! Did you guess right? We think the paint looks almost exactly like Cassidy!

Mom is making her Easter meat pie today and I'm elected to be the official helper and taste-tester! Mitch is out in the workshop hanging with dad and his friend, Bob, so it's just us girls in the kitchen!

To make this pie mom has to dice ham and salami and prosciutto and basket cheese into teeny tiny pieces. Everyone always wants to know what basket cheese is. It's a soft white cheese that comes in a plastic basket! If it has another name, mom has no idea what it is!

I can assure you that this cheese is very good eating right out of the basket! yummmmm Mom says she much prefers it in the pie!

The pie also has 6 eggs, and 1 cup of ricotta and parmesan cheese and salt and pepper in there! Here it is all mixed together!

And now it's my turn to make sure the seasoning is just perfect before it goes into the baking dish! By the way, I had a haircut yesterday so I'm all spiffy for the Easter bunny!

This pie has a crust and mom doesn't "do" crusts! The two of them just don't get along so she buys the crust and rolls it out thinner if she needs a round crust to fit in a rectangular-shaped pan! Can you see the Airedale heads she cut out of dough and put on top of the pie? I'm the bigger one and Mitch is the smaller one! Mom says, "yea, right!"
The pie bakes for almost 2 hours~

Hey, Maggie! What happened to the other Airedale head that was on the pie? I think he sunk! OOPS!!!!

This smells really good! I hope mom shares 2 BIG pieces with us!

Mom didn't share BIG pieces but she did share!

Happy Easter, everybody!

So until next time............

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch
