Have absolutely no clue, but I did buy a nice big ham this week. Glenn mentioned a few weeks ago that he remembered having a really tasty ham when he was growing up, so I'll try to recreate that memory. Not sure what else. He loves, loves, loves sweet potatoes, which would be a good side and there are still some Italian green beans in the freezer from last year's garden. I'm also thinking that a dessert including pineapple would be a good pairing. We both adore pineapple.

I have no clue if there'll be anyone beside the two of us. His mother is scheduled for hip replacement a few days after Easter and her birthday is the 30th and we don't know if anyone else has planned a birthday event for her. Glenn's children usually have that sort of thing taken care of, but I haven't heard anything as of yet. Still, there's plenty of time and we're flexible.

We're going to my dad's for Easter. He's in an independent living village and he's having the meal catered by the cafeteria staff there. Not sure what all he ordered. We have 3 people with April birthdays so will celebrate them as well. The only thing I know for sure is we will have 3 kinds of cake! My son wants an orange-blueberry cake (UVA colors), my niece wants vanilla cake with vanilla frosting and I chose cheesecake. The food will be good because I don't have to cook it and clean up will be a breeze since everything will be disposable.

don't really do anything for easter. i am not a religious person and feel this is a very religious occasion . i do have a small ham in freezer, maybe i will cook that for myself or not. my son and wife and their family are avid church goers and they do their thing. my daughter lives an hour away and she doesn't observe the holiday either. just another day for me. am sewing easter dresses for two of my great granddaughters.

Maybe you and your daughter can get together and "uncelebrate" together.

Still not sure on the dessert yet thinking I might make a cheese cake, or maybe home made ice cream.
After I go to the restaurant I am stopping by Dave's house for salad and dessert!

I test drove a cooked salad last night...wilted spinach with strawberries, toasted walnuts and cranberries with warmed balsamic vinaigrette. I think I will do that again on Sunday with ham and swiss on rye sandwiches. Frozen Plain Greek Yogurt with Orange Marmalade sauce and mint for dessert.

We haven't settled on exactly what to have, but I'm thinking Baked ham, sweet potato casserole, asparagus, deviled eggs, green or fruit salad, rolls. Our grandson has asked for carrot cake for dessert so we will probably have that and maybe a lemon pie.
