I'm thinking of a butterflied and grilled leg of lamb with new potatoes and fresh asparagus. Strawberry shortcake for dessert.

Well, we're not supposed to be eating any bread during the week of Passover, so I'll be having lots of... bread. WHAT? It's my most favorite food group!

For Passover I'm making my yearly batch of charoses. Sister's having a chicken, chicken soup with matzo balls, with asparagus in oil/soy/minced garlic, and we're making our annual cake.

For Easter I'm making another batch of charoses, and we're going to sister's boyfriend's parents' house, where we'll have chicken, baked ziti with sauce, her amazing cold potato "salad" (it's not even a salad - it's just sliced boiled potatoes with bits of onion and string beans and pickle slices), and probably 500 italian pastries, plus a casserole dish filled with cannoli filling that we add to our coffee and just eat with a spoon, plus espresso made on the stove top...

I don't think she did the whole wheat pie thing or "pizza gain" (italian version of an easter quiche) but if she does I'll refrain from that.

assorted quiches -

vegan baked "ham" with pineapple glaze - (don't knock it til you've tried it!)

asparagus with hollandaise sauce -

minted buttered baby peas.-

home made red potato salad with a creamy sour cream dill dressing

tossed salad with Spring greens and grape tomatoes

Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting

Coconut cream pie.

peach martinis or some crisp local Riesling.

Happy Easter! Tovah Pesah! Happy Solstice! Happy Spring! - it's all good!

Won't be serving an Easter/Passover meal as we don't celebrate religious holidays BUT I am very grateful for the Trader Joe's spiral ham that they put out at Easter and Thanksgiving. We package the ham up into about 8 packages, freeze them and then have the best ham sandwiches the rest of the year!

I've settled on cold mint-cucumber soup for starters
Lamb kleftiko, roast potatoes and asparagus with melted lemon butter sauce for mains

But I'm still stuck on dessert. I'm thinking a cheesecake (the non-baked kind) so something light and fresh for after the heavy main course but I can't decide on what flavour cheesecake. Something fruity.

For our breakfast at home I am thinking of making an Easter Pie. I am sure my husband will make deviled eggs with the eggs the kids colour. His version is the best I have ever tried.
I decided to bring a spinach strawberry salad. I am going to make the Easter pie for an easy dinner/hearty snack for after we come home.
