Poll of the Week - 4.05.2010

We’re cruising into our third official week of spring and everything is finally starting to come into bloom! A visit home over the weekend for Easter showed daffodils and crocuses peeking out of the earth, cherry trees and magnolias filling the air with perfume and their pink and white blossoms, and forsythia’s wild, yellow branches popping out against a bright blue sky. It was so nice to be out of the city for a little while, walk around on the grass, and eat outside in a warm, sunny backyard!

Spring marks a clear departure from the foods of winter, and we get the first real taste of this during the Passover and Easter feasts. These holidays have traditions that run deep, with food taking on especial significance since many menu items are chosen for their religious symbolism. This week’s “Poll of the Week” wants to know what did you enjoy at your holiday table this past week?


  1. we're vegetarians in my house, so our meal always revolves around fresh spring vegetables. but what about artichokes??

  2. I forgot it was Easter. Well, only for like an hour.
