Just remembered DD's roommate who will be visiting us for Easter, is a vegetarian.....any thoughts on a dish or two as an alternative to the ham we will also be serving? I can still have my broccoli salad just with the bacon on the side...

Either roast lamb, mashed potatoes, asparagus, rolls, mint jelly, coffee gravy, and some lemony cake or pie.
OR Ham, hashbrown casserole, maybe pineapple casserole, rolls, asparagus...Not really sure yet.
Depends upon whether any of the kids are coming. If not, we might just go out.

Except on Mother's Day when more roast beef is consumed than on any other day in the year.

Default Easter Traditions

So what are yours in terms of food? I am Jamaican and on Good Friday we do not cook or eat meat so we do all our preparation today on Holy Thursday. We fry fish so we can have it for dinner on Good Friday and we have Bun (sweet bread or similar to a raisin nut bread) and Cheese for breakfast and lunch. And of course we have a big Easter brunch after church on Sunday?

Typically our only food tradition is the big Easter Sunday lunch/dinner. It usually consists of a honey glazed ham, mashed potatoes, spinach strawberry salad, green beans, deviled eggs, and either a key lime or chocolate fudge pie. This year, it's nothing. We will be traveling on Easter. We may try to do a brunch somewhere.

I'll be going to my Brothers straight from work, I want to watch the Neice and Nephew hunt for eggs.
Then a small dinner here with just a few people, maybe the neighbor if she is going to be alone..
