I'm planning on a sort of middle eastern meal. I've got some ground lamb and couscous and taboule There's my base. Husband loves the ground lamb .... Idon't know, they're more torpedoes than meatballs. But we'll make appetizers and such to go with the theme. One guest never eats, and the other's and English woman who has a Pakistani husband. So I'm free to create! Last year I was down south caring for my daddy, and it had to be the family tradition. That is to say, ham and potatoes. So I'm happy to have a little leeway!

Claire I made lamb koftas this weekend from my new Yotam Ottolenghi's book, Jerusalem . Really good. Also tried latkes too which would be good for a buffet I can dig any recipes out you might be interested in .

Same here. We have never considered Easter a major holiday. I live in a major Catholic town. We let them do the celebrating for us. And it will be my daughter's chemo week. She will be in bed too sick to even eat. My DIL grew up under Communism and has never celebrated Easter. And my son will be working that day anyway.

This Easter I am going to be alone for the first time in years.

I started thinking about a scaled down version of the traditional ham dinner with the fixins, then it hit me!

I can have anything I want!

Right now I am thinking of a steak, shrimp cocktail and a salad or a large slice of pizza and a salad!

That's how we think of holiday meals, we can have whatever we want. No expectations, unless there is something we want. I make pumpkin pie at least once a month!
