My second husband was Italian and from the time the children were early teens we observed the traditional Italian brunch in our house. My husband made the trips to the Italian store to buy the ricotta cheese, shredded mozzarella, capicola, genoa salami, Italian sausage and pepperoni. I don't know if the tradition was more about the fritta or the trip to the Italian store. All I know is that my husband didn't miss this shopping spree.
This year will be no different, we are having traditional Fritta for Easter Brunch at my house with a twist. I'm serving pancakes for my grandchildren who are not so fond of the egg dish.

I guess you might say, I'm going with the flow. I'm trying to keep up the traditional brunch but I've started making it more to my style. In years past, I baked homemade bread every Saturday and Easter Bread for the holiday. This year, I bought my dough and let it raise before I made my pepperoni bread. I'm a product of my age, I need to take short cuts in order to keep up with my advancing years.
All I can say is Happy Easter and enjoy your holiday.
