If I were having company it would be ham and all the usual go withs.
Either DH and I will go out, or we'll heat up the leftover lamb roast in the freezer. I'll probably make a fancy dessert using strawberries.
Did anyone see the Strawberry Meringue layer torte on the cover of Southern Living? I might try that, or else I'll make Strawberry Shortcake with Almond/cornmeal biscuits.

Spiral cut ham (I hate ham but everyone else likes it), cheesy potatos with bacon, green rice, dinner rolls. Paula Deen's ooey gooey butter cake. My Mom is bringing cut out Easter cookies. And I am also making deviled eggs and a garlicy dip for appetizers. And plenty of wine!

I'll probably put together a casserole of ham and scalloped potatoes. Maybe some sauteed greens on the side.

ok, the last part sounds the best. Actually we will probably limit the wine pretty much cause we are having brunch instead of dinner. I am serving mimosas and bloody Marys.

I started to prepare my Easter dinner, Baked and made the green bean casserole and broccoli bake and the cheese cake is in the oven at the moment. I will assemble my chicken cordon Bleu tommorow, then on Sunday I will make the rice pilaf and warm the homemade brioche and apple sauce muffins in the oven as well as the side dishes.

i made the almonds last night, they were excellent. should be a good thing to put out in the beginning since we usually dont have much at that point.

i also taste tested the tiramisu cake, it was delicious. 5 months in the freezer havent impacted its yumminess. i did realize that im sure its not kosher for passover, but i dont really care. im sure one of my aunts will say something, but everyone else will be happy to eat it.

I'm bringing my famous mashed potato bake with tons of sharp cheddar and diced onion. Also making lemon bars. I have no idea what else will be there, but I'm assuming a spiral-sliced ham from Costco.
