Swifts Premium Hams for Easter Breakfast
Easter Morning. The
scurrying pit pats of little
feet; the search for "what
the rabbit brought." The
promising rattle of kitchen
thing then incense. Upstairs
comes a whiff that means
more to hungry folks than
Arabia's precious spices, the
tantalizing aroma of Ham a
the gods could ask no more!
Dress double quick and down
to breakfast. There it
splutters on the platter, thick
juicy slices, with Brookfield
Eggs, all white and gold, they
are sizzling too.
A sure enough feast.
Keep the holiday's, respect
their customs, that's part of
the romance of living. Easter
morning means ham and eggs
or bacon and eggs and best
Ham and best Bacon means
