My 4-year old is getting excited too! We're going to an Easter Egg hunt on Saturday in our town and then dinner will be at my mother-in-laws house on Sunday afternoon. She'll make braised braciole and I'm making a lemon layer cake to bring for dessert.

I overheard my 5 year old telling his brother that Easter is "kinda better" than Christmas because you get mostly candy, you get to hunt for eggs and you don't even have to do anything for it (like having to behave before Christmas in case Santa is watching). Like you Barb, I buy a basket and fill it. That's the best part for me. Do you dye eggs or use the plastic ones?

Since it's just dear husband & I, our Easter plans are the same as they always are. If we're both hungry & I'm feeling ambitious (lol!) we'll have Eggs Benedict for breakfast, subbing turkey bacon or turkey ham for the usual Canadian bacon.

As far as the main meal, it will either be a smoked turkey or a roast duck - depending on which I can find this week - with the accompaniments dependent on which meat I end up with. Regardless of which I end up, I'm thinking of pierogies with sour cream as an appetizer. Maybe some sliced grilled turkey kielbasa with some flavored mustards as well.

Thursday, all the babies are coming and we will dye the eggs..Outside of course..All I have to do is keep the dog from stealing the eggs and the kids from drinking the colored water I'm picking up the baskets and candy and other goodies today..Those I'll hide til Sunday..On Sunday all my kids will be here and they asked glazed spiral cut ham, scalloped potatoes and DH wanted potato salad, so they voted..Sorry DH maybe during the week with the leftovers grilled asparagus, out favorite artichokes with butter and garlic, homemade rolls, a big fruit salad, appies of course, just not sure what yet...cream puffs for dessert and Easter candy you can con the kids for

3 1/2 and 11! Thank you, I try ! ( I hide plastic now, with a dollar in each -) but I only hide 6 each - the 6th one has a $5 bill in it. They each have their colors to find.

We don't celebrate until Greek Easter which will be at the end of April this year.
We'll roast the lamb in the front yard... do a million Greek side dishes, the kids will have an egg hunt.. we'll all eat, talk and play too much! Can't wait.

We always go to one of 4 French places for Easter lunch, this year it is La Ferme.

They've always done well by me and I'm really looking forward to this year. My friend's family owns the place and they really know how to cook.

I'm definitely look forward to some nice crispy seared foie de veau and a mushroom & chevre tart.
