We usually have either fresh ham or lamb.

But this year it is the two of us and we have some frozen duck legs that are calling to us.

Probably will start with a crab cake appetizer.

Then roast the duck, serve with wild rice, baked asparagus and probably some other side.

Hopefully just a quiet day.

It will probably be buffet style...haven't decided on that yet!!
We all love pineapple and right now on special sale. Would you mind sharing pineapple casserole? Your menu sounds good, you got any extra plates?

Sounds like what I would call proscuitto ham, which is served with melon as a starter.

My sons and I still laugh about the year when Julia Child did "bunny rabbit" for Easter ..... they were 5 & 7 , and that was about 25 years ago! But, it made an impression on them .. and has been a family joke ever since. Not sure my grand-daughters would appreciate the joke as much as their Dad's.

For Easter .... it's going to be lamb .... and not sure what else.

Strawberries are coming in like crazy and the fruit stands are practally giving them away, so I will make my famous chocolate chocolate chip strawberry shortcake! I've been thinking about adding a new dimension to the cake by half-filling the center indentation with strawberry ice cream before putting the fresh strawberries and whipped cream on it. I remember a very long time ago that Howard Johnsons used to have a strawberry ice cream shortcake that was to DIE for!
Can I come to your house?????

I'm getting off really easy this time...MIL is doing Brunch!

It's rare when she cooks - she complains that I'm such a great cook and I love to do it so why should she?

ANSWER: Even someone who loves cooking and is good at it likes to eat someone else's efforts now and then!@!!!!!

Pdswife - I've participated at a Greek Easter - one of my fondest childhood memories! Thanks for reminding me!
