Palm Sunday 2018

My family got together for dinner on Palm Sunday. It’s a special holiday for some Italians, each family with their own  traditional menu. Some of the things we serve on Palm Sunday we might only have once a year.
Dinner starts with a non-typical antipasto – Baccala Salad and Pizza Rustica.
