As warmer temperatures and longer days waken the land, Southerners begin to dream of glorious Easter gatherings. Family members come from far and wide, making their way down highways and backroads, tracing their roots back home. After glorious church services and gleeful egg hunts, it’s finally time to gather around the table and share a meal shining with spring flavors.
As rolls are passed, plates are filled, and glasses of sweet tea are refilled, an easy peace settles over the table.
