We brought some of our home-grown poultry from Maine down here to TN when we came down - chicken, turkey, duck and goose. I'm preparing a "turducken" for Easter dinner. Sweet potatoes are always traditional with us, along with Portuguese sweet bread, slathered with butter. Wife says she will make a lemon meringue pie for dessert. Yum!

The rest of the day, I'll be munching on my chocolate rabbit!

She asked if my husband will make a lamb dish. He makes a beautiful rack rubbed with ras el hanout and served with a red wine reduction. It tastes like heaven. We will probably bring deviled eggs. It's a good way to use up the Easter eggs.
Deviled eggs have to be part of Easter dinner. It is a tradition as far as I am concerned. The lamb, wow. Growing up we always had lamb on Easter. It seems today, with the cost, plus most of our family not being lamb lovers it is very much a thing of the past.

Ham
Scalloped potatoes
Asparagus with hollandaise sauce
Fruit salad of some sort
Chocolate pie and lemony cupcakes with pastel icing for dessert

Can't wait! I love hosting dinners, and Easter is especially fun since we'll have an Easter egg hunt with the kids. Hope the weather cooperates - March is an unpredictable month.

Are you making your own Hollandaise sauce or cheating? I have cheated but it just doesn't taste the same. Growing up we always had home made hollandaise sauce and asparagus on Easter and the same sauce at Christmas but with broccoli.

Yep, the weather could be an issue. It is so early!!!

I just "planned" my menu yesterday. It's a joke because we have the same flavors every year with a little variation. I think people would be disappointed if we changed it and it does include something for everyone and a little bit of family tradition.


Mini spanakopitas and Greek deviled eggs


Clove glazed ham and pineapple relish
Cheese au gratin potatoes
Asparagus with Hollandaise sauce
Parker House rolls


Angel Pie (Lemon Pavlova)


If my daughter wants to make the hollandaise sauce she may do so but usually I just buzz the ingredients in the blender at the last minute.

I'm hoping the weather will cooperate and we can get the grill out. I miss a grilled whole chicken on a charcoal grill with some grilled veggies. It's just the two of us so it's not a big deal.

Just give me those chocolate covered marshmallow bunnies, and a bag of those candy covered marshmallow eggs and I'll eat my self sick on those all day. I'm more interested in the Easter candy but you can keep the jelly beans. Oh yeah I forgot about the Easter eggs. I do some with the neighbor shorties every year. I'll eat those too.
