There will be honey baked ham, au gratin taters, some kind of baked beans, plants... the usual.

I'll be bringing my homemade lemon bars made with lemons I'll pick from one of my trees that morning.

I always do an appetizer course.
1) Spinach Artichoke dip (Costco to the rescue! This stuff is yummy.)
2) Chocolate-covered strawberries (these weren't on the list but Costco had some gorgeous ones I couldn't resist)
3) Honey Goat Cheese
4) Soft white cheese (a brie or something along those lines-whatever strikes my fancy)
5) Pita chips, crackers, sliced baguette
6) Garlic Parmesan focaccia (also courtesy of Costco-they have some Mediterranean bakery company that does displays)
7) Deviled eggs

Main:
1) Spiral sliced ham
2) Scalloped potatoes (homemade not from a mix lol!)
3) Carrot souffle (basically a variation on sweet potato casserole made with eggs and pureed carrots)
4) Biscuit sticks (homemade biscuits cut into stick shapes rather than rounds) and brushed with butter
5) Sauteed apples (easy sliced apples, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, add skillet and cook until desired or even easier-dump it into the oven and bake)
6) And for my niece who only sometimes eats ham, I will do a small bit of chicken ala king on puff pastry shells.

I should probably add something green and healthy lol! But this is hard with my family. Do we all like salads? Yes. But we each like different dressings and different toppings. So just making a salad would cost me a fortune and I would end up with tons of stuff left that I don't even like. Maybe simple blanched haricots verts (long skinny green beans)-green beans are a fairly innocuous vegetable-works for me.

Dessert:
1) I am thinking homemade Tiramisu (even making the ladyfingers or sponge), but if I run out of time, I am ready with Costco pound cake and strawberries with whipped cream. Contingency planning at its finest.

DH and I are on the South Beach diet. We are having our traditional Easter favorites but prepared in a slightly different way.

Normally we would have the traditional meal my mother made when I was growing up in SC.

Old South Deviled Eggs
Honey Baked Ham with Brown Sugar & Pineapple Topping
Mashed Potatoes
Green Bean Casserole (for DS who thinks its the best veggie ever invented)
Broccoli Casserole (for the rest of us)
Fresh Corn
Cucumber and Tomato Salad
Rolls
Nana's Homemade Coconut Cream Pies

This year we're having:
Deviled Eggs with Roasted Red Pepper Filling
Baked Ham with a Spicy Mustard Glaze
South Beach Mashed Potatoes (made with cauliflower)
Green Beans Amandine
Cucumber and Red Onion Salad
Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake (made with low fat ricotta cheese)

Everything is made and in the frig - ready to eat right after church!

We fried the fish we caught on our camping trip and had them with potato salad. We made microwave s'mores to extend the camp vibe - and made some s'mores with nutella in place of the Hershey's. Yowza - that's dangerously delish!
