Easter Menu 4/21/19

We are about to leave and join our family for Easter brunch at my older son's house. I've made a French Toast casserole to add to the menu.
Don't know what we'll do about dinner yet.


What are your food plans today?

I had dinner for 14 planned but had to cancel a couple of days ago because we had too much going on with the water in the basement, bathroom construction behind schedule, etc..I will still bake a ham, scalloped potatoes, veggies as we have the ham here..There will only be three of us now and I probably won't eve set the table..I have a turkey thawed but will bring it to work tomorrow and cook it off there and do something with it later..

I'm going to use the leftover lamb meatballs from last night and make the Turkish meatball soup with sumac broth. I'll make a salad to go with it and heat up the last two dinner rolls I made from no-knead bread.

I have been running a fever for the last 4 days. Yesterday was the highest 103.5 F. So Good Friday and Easter meals were pared down. Actually Good Friday was a smaller version and last night. I haven't been eating much.

The DD's helped me with the cheesecake today. Hopefully I will be able to make Mom's Easter meat pie later.
The planned Easter dinner will be divided. Today will be braised lamb loin chops, steamed asparagus and pasta shells in creamy garlic sauce.
Stuffed artichokes, green bean salad and spinach salad will be tomorrow's dinner. And hopefully Easter meat pie.

For appetizers we had deviled eggs, cheese and bacon dip with crackers and fresh strawberries with a cream cheese and marshmallow Fluff dipping sauce (it tasted WAY better than it sounds).

I made pork chops stuffed with feta and spinach, Lyonnaise potatoes and asparagus.

Dessert was a chocolate cake with a chocolate ganache topping and ice cream.

We had the same with our brunch Andy.

Huge hit!

With it being just the two of us, I alternated kitchen puttering and book reading. I made deviled eggs and cooked some shrimp, put them on a relish tray with grape tomatoes and olives. Dinner was a pork loin rubbed with rosemary and garlic, potato wedges roasted with the meat, and green beans with a lemon parsley butter and a dusting of chopped Marcona almonds. No dessert unless you count a copious amount of Chardonnay.

I feel your pain. Order some bloomin' onions and some dried out chicken -- and lots of booze. You can order a steak if you have good teeth and a strong jaw. If you order it rare, it will only be slightly overcooked. It will still be dry and tough.

When I die, if I go to hell, it will be an Outback Steakhouse.
