For some reason, we tend to have light meals on Easter. This year, weather permitting, we plan to grill steaks and have some potatoes and sides. For dessert we will have a brownie with ice cream and/or a fruit cobbler.
We have friends in California who always have salmon and a citrus salad. There are folks in Texas who have already started priming their bbq pits.
I am having rib eye steaks but I might add some ham steaks and chicken. There is always supper to think about.
I really would like to start the day off with breakfast to commemorate the day. Something simple like biscuits, scrambles, & sausage links with milk & oj.

I always like sweet taters with ham so maybe some jazzed up version of those.
900 cups of jello. That cracked me up.

Not sure yet what we're having for easter dinner just yet.

I look forward to ham on Easter, we only have it 1-2 times a year.
Menu Iam planning on is (sides may change) Honey Baked Ham, candied yams, potato casserole, roasted asparagus-broccoli, corn,apple sauce, cole slaw and dinner rolls. Think Iam making a Butterscotch Dream Pie and a Chocolate Pecan Pie for dessert.

Have a Happy Easter all! Barb

I don't like ham. I know, weird. I always do lamb, but some of my family will not eat it, so we also have a small ham, and this year I am going to smoke a salmon. (I got a new smoker and I have to show off for my Daddy) Hopefully, it will be as good as the last one I smoked or I could be embarrassed.
