Today is an important day to many Christians, especially Armenians. It is the Feast of the Glorious Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. April 24th is also the remembrance day of the Armenian Genocide that took place 1915 - 1917 by the Ottoman Empire. One and a half million Armenians lost their lives. This is the first time since 1915 that Easter and the Remembrance Day have fallen on the same day. It's a meaningful coincidence. Armenia was the first country who held Christianity as it's nation's religion. The Armenian people were brutally killed because of this faith.
Every once in awhile I test my Armenian cooking skills, so today is perfect for that. I'll be cooking Armenian pilaf & lahmajoon (Armenian pizza!) Wish my aunts in CA could be here! Hope everyone has a wonderful day with their loved ones.
