    Question What's cooking for Easter 2014???

    What is everyone cooking for Easter? I will have company from NY so decided we will have Mexican....fijitas, (chicken, beef, and shrimp) all the fixings, Mexican rice & Spanish rice. No one likes beans so I am making a layered veggie salad. We will have stuffed jalapenos, relish tray, cheese tray, cheddar cheese ball with crackers, ruben bites, stuffed mushrooms, deviled eggs, chips and salsa, cheese dip with chips to begin with. For dessert I am making a bunny cake, banana pudding, chocolate cupcakes (my grandson's birthday is the next day), angel food cake with strawberries....and whatever else I think we can't live without...

    I will bake a spiral-sliced ham and will probably have twice-baked potatoes, green beans, butter beans, rolls, pickled peaches, some kind of dessert (probably a pie since my family loves just about any kind of pie).

    If we can use a grill outside, I might make a fatty. The Reuben version goes over well:


    It'll just be the three of us, so I'm not going to go nuts making food. Probably a fruit salad and coleslaw or some kind of veggie salad to go with it. Maybe some dessert, maybe not. Just a simple meal.

    If the snow isn't gone by then, I'll figure something else out and probably take a simple meal to my mom's apartment in town.

    Brunch! Praline French toast, maple pepper bacon, deviled eggs. A salad with pears, gorgonzola and champagne vinaigrette.

    My entree will be this nutloaf: Sage & Simple: nut loaf & vegan gravy

    The rest of the menu is TBD, but I love nut loaf and can't justify the expense of making it for ordinary days.

    Aldi is supposed to have nitrate-free spiral hams, so if I can get one of those, we'll have that, along with mashed potatoes made with almond milk and green beans. I'll probably buy some gluten-free mozzarella sticks as a snack (super expensive but we only get them twice a year.) If I can't get the ham, we'll likely do steak...probably filets or porterhouses (or whatever I can get that's grass-fed....sometimes the selection is small.)

    My family tradition is baked ham w/ pineapple and cherries, mashed potato, rolls, veggie and bunny cake for dessert. I may make a cheesecake too.
