Haven't started thinking about this yet but I guess I should....

Most likely:

Ham
broccoli/cauliflower/bacon salad (DD's favorite)
deviled eggs
rolls
fresh fruit
maybe some kind of cheesy potato ....

mimosas?

they never keep kosher but i do believe my aunt has a fit over the bread/cake issue associated with kosher for passover. but its my dad's house not hers. im still debating whether to bring a baked good that clearly will bother her or just stick with the arroz con pollo and coquito.

My family lives far away....so likely no passover dinner for me....and I am just not into it....so likely either we will be going out or hubby will be cooking....something tells me we will be going out
Though he did win my family over by making a mean hamantaschen...nothing like a catholic boy learning to make a good israeli cookie lol

If your aunt is Ashkenazi, then no rice for Pesach (Passover), either.

Ashkenazi (central and eastern European) Jews do not eat kitniyot (kit-NEE-yot), which includes foods such as rice, corn, peanuts, and legumes (beans) that are prohibited by the rulings of Ashkenazic rabbis, during Pesach. Sephardic (Spanish and Portuguese) Jews do not follow these restrictions.

my aunt is nothing, the only time she pretends to care about anything kosher is passover. we could eat bacon and egg sandwiches and she would probably be fine but bake a cake, no no no!

My MIL will have Easter dinner - ham, mashed potatoes, corn, green bean casserole (gross!), deviled eggs, peas, dinner rolls....and for dessert chocolate cream pie and apple pie - probably some cookies.

I don't each much of that menu..I don't like ham - or corn - or peas - or green bean casserole(gross!).

As long as their are Cadbury Creme Eggs somewhere - I'm set

alrighty, the chicken for the arroz con pollo will be purchased with this deal below. i also included by strawberry jam deal. right now i always buy grape jelly for my peanut butter and jelly sandwiches because its the cheapest and i love it. so its a little treat to see 75 cents a pound strawberry jam. also i think my wife will use it so that saves me from buying her fancy guava jelly.

I noticed that does not matter what holiday, most Americans will eat turkey and ham...
This is also the most popular item in restaurant's "Holidays Buffet". I can't stand ham as a dish, however smoked/cooked ham as a cold cut, with horseradish is delicious!
