I guess I could do a roast beef.

LAMB!

My plans have been made for me this year. Since I am not up to cooking a big meal and my sister doesn't cook much anymore (plus Dad couldn't handle the drive to her place), Dad is taking us out for dinner on the Saturday. So I don't even have to do dishes!

Green beans and tomatoes for one of the veggies (still thinking about another)

Pita
Salmon dip with bread
Cheese dip with chips and bread, it's a hot dip

Chocolate cup cakes with peanut butter frosting (mini sized)
Greek cookies a few different kinds

I didn't see anyone suggest Lamb. I roast ham and lamb the day before and re-heat before serving.

We always have a traditional Russian meal with a few other things thrown in. Ham, kielbasa, cheese pascha, paska bread, egg cheese, horseradish, beets, etc. I like lamb so always have that also. I make things like broccoli salad, deviled eggs, fruit salad. I never cook Easter day, everything is prepared before. No work....just feast.

Actually, I'd be right at home with your menu. As a kid we had very similar Easter meals.

I'm feeding 13 (counting me). Leg of lamb, roasted: dijon potatoes, garlic basil tomatoes, asparagus; yogurt tzadiki. Before hand: hummus, smoked salmon spread, cheeses, olives, grape leaves. Afterwords lemon meringue pie. There are two non red meat eating guests who will get a grilled fillet of salmon with sauted fennel.

As for the "I don't do mushrooms" thing-- if it's on your plate, you have the right to pick it out discretely and not eat it. But don't discuss it or make a scene, or you won't be coming back.(family or not) :) And no, I won't ask you, "Oh don't you like giraffe tongue?" if I find it left on the plate.
