No plans. Not a big day for us.

Southdown, it's so good to have you back. Your humor was missed, my dear.

Well thanks NMS, it's good to be back! Not sure if my humour stayed with me at every point of the journey but I think it's returned home now - at last!

Easter dinner is an odd one for us, we spend so much time over the holiday weekend doing spring cleaning, gardening and DIY that any cooking gets shoved into minimum time. But I WILL make a big roast dinner... somehow!

My grocery store had 2-for-1 pork roasts, so I got a nice, boneless roast for about $11 (4 lbs), with a slightly smaller one for the freezer. I just wasn't inspired by the turkey, plus the prices weren't so great. My store also had coupons for $7 off hams, so I got a small bone-in ham for about $6. I have a great recipe for ham-and-potato soup, which I'll make next week.

Easter dinner will be pork roast, scalloped potatoes, asparagus (drizzled with olive oil and herbs, then broiled), salad and fresh rolls from the bakery. Oh, and deviled eggs and pie! I saw someone's recipe for chess pie in another thread and want to try it. I'll also make a coconut cream pie, since I have the makings.

Mandarin Pork Roast - All Recipes

I thought this looked good for Sunday. I already had all the ingredients except the pork ... can't beat that.

Default Not sure this year

Usually it is a matter of which Easter celebration we honor since some of the family is Western Church and the rest is Eastern...even then it gets confusing since some of the Eastern ones are Greek Orthodox, some Armenian Orthodox, and still others Eastern Rite Catholic. If we're lucky we get to have both Easter celebrations, unless of course it is a year when Easter falls on the same Sunday for the entire family. This year it looks like it might just be my mother and me since she is not up to travel at all for one of the bigger family get-togethers (too far to go) and my sister and her brood will be away from home this year. That said, Mama does not want to do any cooking and has essentially forbidden me to do anything at her house or bring anything over. We do have an invitation to join one of her good friends that she does not get to see often of late and she really wants to see her, so I think that is what we are going to do (Mama can travel short distances so it looks viable).

In a normal year, depending on the hosting family, we have roast lamb, a fresh hen, ham, poached fish, or a pork shoulder. Sides are either typical Greek or Armenian things, cracker salad, ramps, artichokes, maybe some dandelion salad, fresh greens (raw or cooked), chilled dolma, cucumber salad, etc. Breads will be homemade rolls or loaves. Desserts vary but usually include some sort of cake (like an Armenian spice cake), Greek pastries, buttermilk pie, baked egg custard, or things like that.

We'll be doing Easter dinner on Saturday rather than Sunday as we have to drive DD back to college on Sunday which will take most of the day by the time we drive up and get back home. Plus since we're the only ones out here - our family is all over the place so it will be "just us"...We'll do a turkey breast, green bean cassarole, mashed potatoes, rolls and strawberry jello/pretzel dessert. Not too exciting but a meal everyone enjoys. We'll have omelettes and bacon in the morning before we head out.....Happy Easter everyone!
