Small gathering this year so we're having a prime rib roast, asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes. With a first course of manicotti and a salad.

It's just my husband & myself, & since he doesn't eat any red meat, that automatically rules out the usual ham, fresh pork roast, or leg of lamb.

Therefore, I usually go one of 2 ways - roast duck, with either an apricot, orange, or cherry sauce; or a smoked turkey. It works out well, because either way I end up with leftovers to be inventive with.

This year it's a smoked turkey (which is thawing as we speak), which will be served with Boursin Cheese Gratineed Potatoes, & a plain buttered medley of spring vegetables (green & wax beans, baby carrots, & sugar snap peas). And of course, the inevitable Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits - lol!!

Easter is at Sis's house this year, I'm contributing leg of lamb, (which I'll bone out tommorow) and grilled asparagus. Bucky, I'm curious about the beets and horseradish. Is this a side dish or a condiment for the ham?
John.

it's a side dish johnl. like pickled red cabbage, it can be served hot or cold.

simply boil and skin a few beets, grate over a bowl, then grate some fresh horseradish into the beets. add s&p, mix, and there ya go. some people like a little vinegar mixed in as well.
i like a lot of horseradish in mine so it clears out your sinuses.

We're just having the normal. Brown sugar spiral ham, green bean casserole, cole slaw, rolls and I'm not sure on the dessert yet.

Sounds like many of us are having very traditional foods for Easter. We are having a spiral ham, roast sweet potatoes, squash casserole, roast asparagus, haven't decided on a salad yet. Dessert is a Zinger cake that my dd is bringing and I'm making a sour cream pound cake to serve with strawberries.

dh is working on Easter, so we'll be doing it tomorrow. I told dh to let me know what he'd like but he hasn't decided yet.
