No surprises here, pretty much a repeat of last year.

Ham steak
Kielbasa
Cauliflower Gratin
Maple glazed carrots
Cabbage salad
Pickles, olives, horseradish
Mixed berries with cream

Maybe a half dozen pickled eggs.

I have something special planned for Easter dinner, that I'll start cooking when I roll out of bed around noon. No, it's not bunny, although that was a tempting idea, too. As for passover, probably pork cooked in a dairy product, and shellfish.

Show-off, msm.

IF we get together with Himself's sis and BIL, it would be at our house. If I do ask and they show, it will probably be similar to other larger Easter dinners I've made over the years: boneless pork loin roast, asparagus and another veggie or two, some sort of potato, maybe a salad. SIL brings the dessert when we have them over, so it would be a surprise until Easter or right before.

We usually have what I call a Polish Easter:

Borscht, deviled eggs of color, Mother's cheese, rye bread. baked ham, kielbasi and kraut, potato salad, coleslaw, grated beets-n-horseradish, steamed string beans, and sauteed asparagus.

Also rugelach, kruschiki, raisin babka, kolaczki, and 7 sisters.

However, we have an extra 22 lb turkey left over from Christmas that's taking up most of the freezer in the fridge in the garage, so I hope we make that instead. I love turkey.

I love Office Space. Yes, that's the way it's written on the TPS reports.
