    Most people have a hard time believing this, but our traditional Easter menu is:

    hot dogs
    potato salad
    marshmallows
    cupcakes with green tinted coconut and jelly beans to look like nests.

    We always have a weiner roast on Easter-- clean up all the branches that came down over the winter (we have another one in the fall for the stuff that the summer storms bring down)

    We spend it with my family at my house so I make the ham, scalloped potatoes, hummingbird cake and a jello mold. My sisters and inlaws will bring rolls, candied carrots, coleslaw, and 2 or 3 more mystery dishes and deserts, that just show up on the table. I can only hope they all go with ham. I just never know with my family.

    Our only Easter tradition in S'mores as we are generally camping that weekend. One year we made ham. Last year we had hamburgers and hot dogs. We also do an Easter egg hunt at the campground.

    Mom makes a ham and the rest of us all bring something to add. Dh has 7 siblings, so there is plenty!

    We traditionally eat whatever the hostess is serving. LOL. Every year we end up somewhere for Easter dinner-- an aunt's, a grandma's.... but it varies, and so does the menu. I always take a dish, but that varies with the hostess' menu.

    We've never been really big into to Easter, I think I usually just bake a roast. I would definitely rather have a ham, but hubby doesn't really like ham (weirdo). I usually just make a small basket for the boys, set a couple of decorated baskets and fake eggs around the house. Sometimes we will have an egg hunt for the boys.

    BTW that pineapple casserole definitely sounds good, please do post the recipe

    My friend and I usually go out for Easter dinner at a favorite local diner. Back home for drinks.

    Whenever with family - whatever they are serving
