We are not religious but we believe in eating a good meal for holidays regardless of our religious beliefs. My wife tried out making ham this year and did not disappoint. She found a recipe for an orange/dijon glaze and it turned out very nicely. She also made au gratin potatoes from scratch and lactose free for me.

It is just the two of us and we have enough leftover ham for a month! I've had it twice already today!

Not doing a big dinner with hubby still on tube feeding. Son and I are going to grill chicken thighs and asparagus, and cook new potatoes in a foil packet on the grill. Odds and ends of ice cream and left over pineapple upside down cake for dessert.

It was just SO and I (we are transplants and live hundreds of miles from family), but I made a spiral-sliced glazed ham (only a quarter), broccoli/rice/cheese casserole, corn with butter sauce, hard rolls, and baked an apple pie.

we had an early Easter brunch: I fixed ham for sandwhiches with all the trimmings, a cauliflower/broccoli salad with crasins. Our daughter came with wonderful appitizers, and fruit salad. Our granddaughters furnished the desserts inlcuding chocolate peanut butter pie plus the deviled eggs. We had mimosas, bloody marys and wine plus soda for the teetottlers. Everything was great but I am still overly full and have indigestion. NO dinner tonight for us.

Not a lot this year as most.

We started out with a green salad, everything n the kitchen sink was in it. I make my own crescent roll type deals, that have crab and cream cheese filling, oh they were so good.
Then we had a black forest whole ham, and i do make my own crackle glaze. I made scalloped potatoes, with dirkee onion rings on top and tons of cheedar and mozarella chees. I made a brocolli and rice with chicken dish. We had corn souflee, and i made my own cornbread.
We then had being Italian, homemade Stuffed shells, with the best meatballs stuffed with sasuage, sasuage, by itself, in sacue.
Chicken piazola, with potatoes, green and red peppers, onions, garlic, and sasuage.

Thats it, wine, water, coffee and desert wine
I made choclate truffe cake, and a strusel apple pie. That was all this year. But turned out good.
Was not feeling so good, so prepared so much of the dinner on Saturday.

On Easter Sunday, DH and I had a little picnic (just the two of us) near Senecca Rock, on the way to Blackwater Falls. We spent a few days in West Virginia during Easter Break.

We had a potluck feast, with all we could eat of sourdough southern biscuits, jello salad, sweet potatoes, cranberry bars, cream cheese nut ball, and (naturally) green chile cheese enchiladas! My husband's contribution was what I call "cluck-baa." Roasted chicken quarters and goat ribs, barbecued in his special marinade of tomatoes, ginger, and middle eastern seasonings. He doesn't share his secrets, but if you ask I might be able to persuade him.
