My contribution will be a platter of roasted vegetables - asparagus, sweet potato, onion, parsnip, carrots, broccoli.

Ham with raspberry red wine jalapeño glaze, curried deviled eggs. German potato salad and crackling, jalapeño cheese cornbread.

For dessert we'll be having coconut/pineapple cake

Iced tea, coffee and fresh squeezed lemon aid. You may have noticed that I modified my original dinner.

May everybody have a safe and peaceful Easter filled with friends and family. .

I'm making a ham and all the traditional trimmings. Has anybody here ever made a slow cooker ham? I always bake mine in the oven. I was looking at new recipes last night and saw one for the Crock-pot. I would love to try it and not have to play "tetris" with my oven racks.

Happy Easter and Happy Passover!

Awesome meal. Mainly Greek with a little Russian thrown in. At least I will be getting Roast Leg of Lamb.

We're doing a brunch potluck at my brother's house, and we're bringing biscuits and gravy. I think my mom is bringing a breakfast egg bake, my sister is bringing hashbrown casserole, my brother and sister-in-law are bringing coffee cake, and the brother and sister-in-law who are hosting are providing bagels, spreads, and a fruit tray.

OMG, It all sounds so good. I would love to be having roast leg of lamb except it's too expensive for us.

I'm just making a small roast beef with Yorkshire pudding. (Pudding is currently out of the cool porch "resting") and I'm making roasted carrots and potatoes to go with it. Pretty simple. Thicken the juices from the meat for gravy and done.

Family is far away so we're just having a friend over. I didn't even make a dessert.
