My brother, half mile away, is having an early Easter meal tonight. He and his wife will be at the home of one of their sons for Easter.

Ham and potato salad is on the menu. I made a Shaker lemon pie yesterday so that will be my contribution.

YUM! Katie, can you post a recipe for the shaker lemon pie somewhere? I seem to recall you talking about slicing lemons really thin...and then my memory is gone. LOL

Tonight we are having BBQd beef ribs, a BIG old salad, some kind of potatoes...might throw those on the BBQ too...and for dessert sliced strawberries with a sprinkling of sugar and a dollop of whipped cream.
That reminds me, I'd better go put the rub on those ribs!

Not sure what I'll be eating or if I will be eating at all. I have to photograph a wedding from 4 pm til 10 pm. Sometimes I'm offered a plate and sometimes I'm not. I usually decline anyway and eat a sandwich before and grab a light snack when I get home.

The recipe is very good and way too easy. It's this one at Epicurious. I used their pate brisee recipe, too. The pie turned out beautifully.

Yes, I sliced the lemons, skins and all, paper thin and let them macerate overnight in granulated sugar. It's gonna be tasty.

Its nice here so we are going to grill turkey burgers. I'm going to make a lime garlicky sweet potato bake and something else - not sure what but it will probably involve chocolate. And I've got a nice bottle of Malbec to crack open with my burgers.

Gotta hit the grocery first.

Spaghetti/meatballs with whole wheat pasta and a tossed salad. I have the sauce simmering, as I type.

I'll be doing a small roast pork out of the freezer with a rice side dish and fresh green beans cooked with Rotel tomatoes.
