My mom always, and I mean always! served roasted leg of lamb with mint jelly on Easter, and that’s what I’ll be cooking for Easter. (No, not one of our lambs!!!!  A “stranger” lamb……)  I haven’t decided yet what I’m cooking for side dishes and dessert, though.

 

What about you?  Any traditions for the Easter meal?

Clover made me do it.

We have roasted leg of lamb cooked the way Himself’s grandmother (born in France) did.  Cut slits all over the meat, insert slits of garlic and roast at 450 for 15 minutes then lower to 325 for the remainder of the time, basting with red wine throughout.  Sides are tossed salad, tiny new potatoes and always asparagus and some type of lemony dessert.

Work like you don't need the money, love like you've never been hurt and dance like you do when no one is watching.

At home we always had ham, mashed potatoes, carrots, jello/whip cream salads of some sort, and a cream pie for dessert.

Now, I always make a ham with pineapple, garlic dilled baby potatoes, asparagus, and strawberry shortcake (drop biscuits for the shortcake) for dessert.

We have glazed ham with mashed or scalloped potatoes, pineapple cheese casserole and spinach au gratin.  And sweet potato pie for dessert!  We’re going to mix it up this year; we’ll be having our MT “family” so there will be some new dishes.  Hungry

Things are different this year, for over 25 years I have always had my extended family for Easter and an egg hunt for the children.  After losing 3 siblings in the past few years, our family dynamics have changed.  With hubby so sick, it will be just us and I may have a small ham and just a few veggies.  Nothing special for our meal, but we will reflect on what we do have and the real Easter story.  Sorry I don’t mean to be a downer.

That actually sounds like a lovely way to “celebrate,” Jeannie!  And in many ways, much more meaningful.

Here, we will be doing a sunrise service with a big breakfast following.  The rest of the day?  Not sure yet.

Our plans have changed again!  We are joining some friends for dinner.  We will be bringing rileysmom’s Pineapple Cheese Casserole, several jars of home canned chutneys and preserves, and maybe a loaf of bread – thinking a pecan cranberry loaf.  Haven’t made that one in several years.  It is sooo good, and am thinking it will only be better made with whole wheat flour.  It’s not particularly sweet, so is an excellent dinner bread with a holiday meal.

We may be having chicken and dumplings – oooh, hide your eyes fluffy butts – you may not want to read this. ;)

Or, we just may do something different this year – egg flower soup, sole fillets, almond chicken & rice,  green salad with lots of fixins’ – and to top it off – Lemon Meringue Pie and Strawberry Pie. ( I like a small slice of each on a plate with whip cream on the strawberry. Yummy!)

I have all the ingredients in the fridge, and will whip up those pies tomorrow.

No little kids this year. It will just be hubby and me and my mom, who will turn 89 this month, and these are all her favorite foods.

She is bringing some wild onions her brother sent her from Oklahoma. He and his wife picked them on my grandparents’ old place.

I usually do a ham…but now that my daughter is married, you know how that goes, she willl have ham with the in-laws early in the day.  So, I am doing a brisket for much later in the evening.  Should be good.

I wish all of you a Happy Easter.

Usually do a ham with all the fixins, but we are going to  a Easter brunch at the Upstream brewery in Omaha to celebrate three birthdays this month. Going to give Mom a break, although I do like to cook for a crowd. Wishing you all a good time with family and friends.
