Since we have moved to TN we have gone to our favorite pizza place and sit outside so we can watch all the people walk by and enjoy our afternoon.

Thnaks and let me know how you liked it. I only make it twice a year and Easter is one of those times.

We're probably buying a ready done chicken from somewheres and maybe potatoes, carrots, onion and celery on the side. Dessert is what matters to me most(born with a sweet tooth). I've got to come up with something good--probably bought this year though.

Will be served (almost always a staple)

Cheese & hard sausage / salami starters

Salad
Whole ham / Turkey
A couple links of Kielbasa
A huge jar of home made pickled eggs w/ beet juice
And also some easter colored hard boiled eggs
A jar of home made horseradish to go w/ z eggs
Either a green bean casserole / corn casserole
Almost forgot... baked beans
Loaf of good hard bread
(which I may make a dip for... either that or a herbed chilled butter in some bunny shape etc.)

All at my MIL's.

Instead of cooking on the grill as I originally thought, I may suggest we make reservations at our favorite restaurant for brunch.

I don't think what we eat for Easter has any special meaning any more than any other holiday meal. I know Jesus didn't eat ham, but I don't think the pilgrims ate pumpkin pie either!

Herb-crusted leg of lamb
New potatoes (roasted in with the lamb)
Asparagus
Strawberry Shortcake

^^^That is my family's traditional Easter dinner, but with only two of us eating this year it might change.

The only thing for sure is grilled steaks and the antipasti platter. Probably asparagus, marinated artichokes, roasted peppers, carmelized onions, (possibly) dim sum dumplings like shui mai, deviled eggs, pate, various dried salamis, dried fruits, fresh fruits, bread and crackers to assemble with. There will be cheese, and lots of it: Manchega, Iberico, goat, mozzarella with prosciutto, Dubliner, smoked gorgonzola, Havarti, Beemster, ... Really no need for anything else but the platter, actually. I'll be parked in front of it.

We're only going to be a small group the first night, so we'll serve:

gefilte fish (with horseradish)
chicken soup with matzo balls, farfel and soup nuts
brisket
tzimmes
potato kugel
asparagus
I'm going to try this recipe for apricot-baked chicken
charoset
assorted macaroons
chocolate chip mandelbrot
coffee meringue cookies
sponge cake
jelly roll cake
And, of course, "the usual": Barton's almond kisses, chocolate covered matzo, chocolate-raspberry jelly rings, vanilla marshmallow twists, toasted coconut marshmallows, and sugar coated fruit slices.

We're visiting neighbors the second night; I don't know what they're serving.

Walter, your matzo brei recipe looks like mine.
