We are grilling out:
Skirt steaks
Chicken burgers stuffed with feta and spinach
salmon filet's
Burgers stuffed with bacon and cheese
grilled asparagus
Baked potatoes with garlic and olive oil
tossed salad

It's not our traditional meal we always have which is chicken cordon bleu but my brother, wife and kids are coming and they said they don't like chicken cordon bleu. Anyway grilling is easier. We will be at my mom's. So much food only 6 of us. LOL.

I hope, hope, hope I will be in Arkansas, eating out at some country cafe or having a picnic lunch in the woods by a lake or burbling stream.

Whatever My Friend Who Always Cooks Big Dinners on Holidays for Lots of People is making.
Probably ham and BBQ steaks or ribs for meat.
I know another friend is bringing her bacon-wrapped cream-cheese jalapeno peppers.
I'll probably bring some sort of salad.
And of course there have to be Cadbury's chocolate Easter eggs, especially if the grandkids are there!

lubby, good thread..

ham is traditional in this part of the world, so is lamb, and prime rib

I will have a ham,,,

i will buy a semi bnls ham,,,
shank hams are the cheapest, but has alot of waste, the butt portion is a great value, a little higher in price but yields much less waste..
then the semi-bnls ham , around 8-10 lbs,,,my fav...very little waste.

im not a fan of spiral sliced hams..

we will also have lamb,,,a rare treat, i will buy a whole leg , bone, roll, and tie, then roast it i love lamb!!


for those that are cooking hams- if it says fully-cooked on the label, and most hams are- you are essentially just warming it up to eat,,,cook it 10 mins per lb at 325, many of the old recipes call for 20-25 mins per lb at 350, - this is overkill, particularly with spiral sliced,,,it will be very dry

if you do buy a raw, uncured ham, then yes, cook it longer

Just got off the phone from talking with my mother. There will only be six of us this year. She and I decided on a roast beef. Ham's too salty for the high BP set (I dodged that bullet) and not everyone likes lamb. I haven't had a roast beast in a looong time, and she's willing to cook one. My sister who is coming and I will bring the veggies and dessert.
