For some reason we tend not to cook every Easter. After mass,(church) there is usually coffee, tea, mulled biscuits etc etc, we then get home and the kids do the egg hunt then after they have stuffed themselves we opt for a late lunch at the local sports center. It's a walking distance. I had fillet of perch, salad and french fries,(My daughter did as well) DH had a lovely steak and son had a pizza, we then walked home just as it had started snowing again.

Traditionally, growing up it was always ham, scalloped potatoes, carrots, and other veggies. My Mom would make a huge meal for all the family. In later years when she took sick, I took over the tradition and the family has grown smaller with the passing of Aunts and Uncles and my Mom. Now that my Dad is alone, he still wants the tradition of hosting Easter; however he doesn't cook - He takes us to a restaurant appropriately called "Home". They usually have a traditional ham dinner special at Easter and all their meals are real comfort food. It will just be my Dad, Sister and DH.

Breaking tradition here since it's just dh and myself. Instead of ham, I am making ribs, pizza, mac salad. Leftover pie for dessert. I did make brunch earlier today after church for the kids before they headed off to their other destinations.

We don't do Easter, and we had our big weekend dinner last night, so tonight will be grilled bacon-cheeseburgers with fries and salad.

My sister hosted Easter dinner this year and somehow she got out of making anything. My mom made the ham, green beans, potato salad and rolls. I made the mac and cheese and the banana pudding.
Tonight's dinner will be leftovers - and some chocolates the Easter bunny brought us.

Well, we went to our favourite restaurant, "Home", as I mentioned, only to find an empty parking lot and a sign on the door "closed for mechanical reasons, reopening Tuesday". Well none of us wanted to fast that long so we went to another restaurant down the street. After waiting a very long time and seeing everyone else around us being served our dinner arrived and it was well worth the wait.

I had canneloni stuffed with a mousse of carmelized wild mushrooms and proscuitto, covered in a tomato cream sauce and tons of parmesan cheese with Caesar salad and garlic bread on the side. I ate everthing but the garlic bread.
