Easter 2014

I've only prepared Easter dinner once in my life, and it didn't go well. It's been almost ten years since then, and I'm ready to give it another go!

What do y'all have planned for Easter dinner this year?

  1. Easter means brunch in my family. Sky is the limit.

    1. There was another thread started a few weeks ago that it might be worth merging with

      My plan is roasted leg of lamb and asparagus if it's finally in season.

        We'll definitely be doing roast lamb. Probably too early for our asparagus. But maybe not too early for Jersey Royal potatoes. It's no big deal though - no religious significance for us - but it's an excuse for a celebration of spring.

          So true, here too! I love it as a day to break up the monotony after the winter holidays (don't tell my parents).

          Oops. :/ I checked to see if one had already been made, but I missed it somehow.... Sorry!

            it's ok, believe me, I AMMMMMMMMMM the biggest offender of repeating an already established thread

        3. I usually make the roasted lamb with pomegranate & onions from 'The Philosopher's Kitchen' cookbook.

            Oh. Tell us more about the use of pomegranate.

          2. this year I'm gonna vote on an Easter Motor Home dinner. Somewhere by the sea where I can cook up a hopefully nice dinner+where church can be a first in the morning outting. that way (celebration of the day) can be enjoyed.

            A smallish bone in ham glazed in Dr. Pep, scalloped potatoes, fresh green beans with almonds and mushrooms in a cream sauce, a fruit salad, garlic sourdough toasted bread and LadyBird cupcakes for dessert.

            Kontexesi, you'll do fine, just don't put too much pressure on yourself and don't overdue, it'll be wonderful...
            good fortune to you with your meal and moreover
            Happy Easter..........

            1. Too early to tell! My wife has not brought up the subject.
