Last year I did a traditional (for us) Easter dinner, with ham, green bean bundles, scalloped potatoes, yeast rolls, strawberry pretzel salad...really for my mom. But she didn't feel well and didn't come...she died about a month later.
This year my 91-year-old father-in-law is recovering from a month in the hospital with pneumonia, so I just picked up locally cooked barbecue (YUM!), potato salad, coconut and chocolate meringue pies...I'll cook some green beans (with ham, of course), fresh pineapple and watermelon slices, strawberry shortcake.
I can make up plates and take them to the in-laws.

Well...we're going to my parents for Easter, and I know my Mom is making a ham and traditional potato salad, as well as lasagna for my birthday (I just got old but, hey, I got double ID'd buying some wine the other night LOL).

I can't read anymore about rabbits!! (Felt like a punch in the stomach)

I already put the turkey & stuffing in the oven for today's dinner. I love the
sandwiches for the next few days.

Happy Easter to All

we are having ham, sweet potato casserole, rolls and butter, veggie casserole(made with corn, green beans, cheese, cream of celery soup and sour cream) my son doesn't like sweet potatoes, so it will be rice or noodles for him! also, I made this creamy strawberry desert that i saw in a magazine..never had it before..fresh strawberries, sweetened condensed milk, coolwhip, and cookies crust. hope it turns out tasty.

I was at my mom's earlier today, so she did the cooking this time. We had Honey-Baked ham, Sicilian scalloped potatoes, spinach, deviled eggs, salad, cantaloupe, strawberries, rolls, and chocolate cake. Good Easter fare.

We had roast lamb, roast beef, home made gravy, roast potato, pumpkin, sweet potato, cauliflower cheese, peas, beans, silverbeet and a pretty good trifle.

Best of all, someone else cooked it and somebody else did the dishes after.

As I won't be having an Easter meal I think I should visit some of you guys as it sounds like you're having quite a feast on this thread!

I know it's a little late for Easter appetizers but...one totally easy, fairly cheap and very good appetizer.

Cut brie into small pieces (remove rind if desired). Place in those miniature phyllo cups (you can buy refrigerated/frozen in a box of 15 or use phyllo dough and make your own by just cutting to shape and baking in miniature muffin cups until browned). Top with the exotic or plain jam of your choosing (raspberry and apricot are good!). Pop in the oven at 350' for about 5 minutes. Garnish if desired (ie a sprinkling of chopped nuts or a berry or two).

You also can do savory versions using just a tiny bit of pesto or artichokes. Or a sprinkle of brown sugar and pecans with dried cranberries. Caramelized onions and mushrooms.

Numerous possibilities. All yummy and easy and quick.
