kulich, paskha and meat dishes, salads are always a nice starter though. I decided to take it easy and make something simple, fast and enjoyable for everybody. Since the whole Easter celebrations this year were all about combining two different traditions the plan was to make the kid’s favorite macaroni salad and Russian (or rather Soviet) classics - Olivier salad (aka Russian salad). Yes, I know it is not fancy and back in Moscow I would be embarrassed to serve Russian salad for a special occasion but since my American family is new to it and never welcomed new year in with a giant basin of this stuff so I found it ok. Plus, I wanted to give the kids something they would definitely eat.

I took a little break from blogging (oh well, it is also know as procrastination) but now I am back and ready to finish writing about our Easter meal. Today I am sharing my recipe of pork roll with apples - some people asked about it on Facebook - here you go my friends.
This is a simple recipe that everyone will enjoy. It was one of my favorites back in Russia but I had never cooked it here in the States before Easter: the end of Lent seemed the perfect reason to treat everybody to this delicious meal. What I like about pork that it is very cooking time saving and yummy both hot and cold.
