Visiting sister, who is making a ham, collard greens, and sweet potatoes, her husband's favorite. She has a cherry pie for dessert. I'm bringing a roast chicken and some cheese and some cookies. With my mother gone four years now, Easter is kind of sad, but we decided last minute to have a small get-together of four of us siblings plus the brother-in-law. None of our kids are close by.

I believe the missus is making bacon wrapped asparagus, canned garden green beans, parmesan mashed potatoes (from the garden too), fresh rolls and a lemon caper yogurt sauce.

Anything special on your menus?
Well unfortunately that ham soured. It's obvious the salt/cure didn't penetrate to the bone, so it's all bad .

Thankfully I had some ham slices in the freezer.

Just the two of us this year, so I'm not cooking anything special. Will likely be cheeseburgers and baked beans. My Mom use to go all out with the bone in Ham, brown sugar apricot sauce. and potato salad with assorted veggies. I miss that.

Bachelor Son shopped for the groceries and came and made ham, peas and fennel fettuccine. I tossed a green salad with croutons, avocadoes, bacon and homemade bleu cheese dressing, made some asparagus and Hollandaise sauce. Served it with brown and serve rolls from the bakery.

We invited a friend who has been widowed and she brought an apple pie and ice cream and I had made a lemon and kiwi Pavlova so we all ate two desserts!

Roasted pork shoulder, scalloped potatoes, corn soufflé, sautéed bok choy, salad, rum cake, and lemon meringue pie. So good!

Crab Melts with asparagus/snow peas sounds really good to me. Like and healthy. And strawberries later!

What is your favorite recipe for the crab melt? Do you use Monterey Jack or Swiss cheese? Would you share your recipe, please?

We had roast tri-tip and sweet potato souffle. I also made some pink velvet cupcakes. For my drink I had some Welch's Sparkling Rosé.
