So far it's just ham and jellybeans - have plenty of both.

Big teen cookout here tomorrow night, and nobody coming over on Sunday (our immediate families live so far away).

dh has decided. We are trying to make a change to eat healthier, but get a "cheat meal" every week, this will be it for this week. He's decided he wants pork chops stuffed with green chile & cheese, coated in panko. He also wants homemade french fries & kahlua mousse pie for dessert.

Lol - I've already tried that. Can't get him to eat rabbit either. I guess I should say he doesn't eat "mammals", instead of he doesn't eat "red meat".

Five course menu focusing on Spring. I'll post it later when I have time.

Last I'd heard, my husband had to work all week-end, but tonight when he came home, he announced that he had the whole week-end off. I asked him what he wanted for Easter dinner, and he said, "Steak!"
We still have some nice rib-eyes in the freezer, and baked potatoes are easy. There's homemade bleu cheese dressing, bacon bits, and a nice bagged salad mix in the fridge.
Sounds good to me...simple is always good.
We get by with a little help from our friends

I am not sure, yet. My family was going to make a bunch of ham sammies and take a drive have a picnic. But now it is supposed to snow that day and our plans have been ruined.

Normally would have a roast, but we will not be around for the leavings.

We have some nice lamb shanks, big ones. They may be more mutton than lamb, but we love the taste if they are..

Then are making mashed spuds, we have some parsnips we have not used, and may mash them into the taters.

And if I get energetic, which is unlikely, will do the same with some carrots. Mashed cooked carrots mixed with mashed taters are really good.

Asparagus, probably baked.

And found some nice artichokes that will do nicely.

And that should do it.

Enjoy your Easter DC friends.

I still don't know what salad for my Easter dinner

I haven't been able to come up with an idea for my Easter dinner salad. Everything I think about is too much or too different. I want the right thing to enhance the rest of the meal, but so far no conclusions.
