With all this social distancing, the Easter holiday is going to be a little strange this year. I was supposed to be headed home to Michigan on Thursday for a nice long weekend, but unfortunately, I'll be spending Easter alone here in Iowa. Lucky for me, there are lots of places in the area where I can get a delicious Easter meal!
