Not sure what we will have this year. Since all our family is out of state maybe we will do something non-traditional. One thing I miss is the fresh kielbasa that I used to get back home that we had on Easter.

The pork loin with apricot glaze sounds so good. Do you grill it or roast it?

It sounds so good I may do that instead of fresh stuffed ham.

If I'm cooking, we'll do a pork roast, with roasted potatoes and red cabbage, plus asparagus, since it's in season. For dessert, I'll do something light - I cut up angel food cake into bite size pieces. Then I layer cake with layers of fresh fruit, pureed fruit and whipped cream. Easy and tasty!

That sounds so good. Do you think it'll work on a gas Weber? We had a nice dome charcoal grill which we lent to my aunt, but she took it upon herself to give it away her neighbor once she bought herself gas grill.

I've done it on a weber gas-just put your heat on one side and your roast on the other.

Lacey, thanks for the tip. I know there's nothing worse than an overdone pork loin.

Tried to give you points, but gotta spread 'em around!

We do a large, late(2pm) family 'brunch' after the kids find my brilliantly hid eggs (which they trade in for a treat basket-they get a 'clue list' to find the eggs). Honey baked ham, swedish pancakes rolled with lingonberries, egg/cheese casserole, sausage links over baked cinnamon apple slices,fresh fruit/raw spinach bowl, poppyseed muffins with strawberry butter, and CHAMPAGNE served in a flute glass with a splash of apricot nector. Its the same menu every year and its always my house-just like Christmas. Dessert- grandma brings her home made coconut lamb cake and after champagne, someone always thinks its funny to make the lambs eyes crossed ( poor grams works so hard to perfect the lamb details but she always laughs . PS I did mention champagne didnt I >?
