It's all about the Family and the Food

No one tell my mother this. She believes that Easter is about celebrating the Resurrection of Christ. For the rest of us, it's about hanging out with the family and the food. We aren't the type of family that likes turkey and ham on holidays. Because it is Easter, we can get my Mom to make one of our favorite things... chicken tostadas. The only other thing that would ensure everyone's presence is Grandma's Tamales.

So for Easter, we hung out with family. We talked, we laughed and we ate. And then, we ate and laughed some more. We had chicken tostadas, shrimp salad and capirotada, which is a Mexican bread pudding.

To make your own tostadas, simply add a thin layer of refried beans, meat, vegetables and cabbage to a tostada shell. Top with homemade salsa and queso fresco or some grated romano cheese. Make them one at a time and eat them fast before they start falling apart. Yum!
