Today I thought I’d share our menu for Easter Dinner. It should be a fun Easter this year. My parents will be joining us and then a family from church who is in the middle of moving – from a house to an apartment while their new home is built. They have 5 of the cutest little girls you have ever seen and their mother is 8 months pregnant with another girl!! We are going to have fun.
So here’s the menu.
Honeybaked Ham – I am not a big ham fan but my family likes it so we have it once a year – on Easter.
Fresno Potatoes – this is a nice alternative to scallop potatoes or what we call “funeral potatoes’. You know the recipe – frozen hash browns, lots of sour cream, cream of chicken soup and cheese. It seems ham and potato dinners are a popular thing to do at funerals – thus the name.
Strawberry and Spinach Salad – a perfect combination, spinach and strawberries with a yummy dressing.
Parmesan Roasted Asparagus– this is a Barefoot Contessa recipe and my favorite way to eat asparagus.
Roasted Tomato Tart – this recipe is from Gourmet Magazine and will be one of my experimental recipes this Easter. Want to try it with me?
Mom’s Orange Rolls – my mom will be bringing these and they are wonderful. Everyone loves them and Easter dinner would not be complete without them.
Grandma’s Jello Salad -mom will also be bringing this staple of our Easter Dinner.
Lemon Angel Pie – Yum!
White Chocolate and Raspberry Cheesecake – my favorite cheesecake at The Cheesecake Factory is their White Chocolate and Raspberry. When my new friend Theresa sent me this recipe I knew I would have to try it for Easter. Theresa is also where the Lemon Cheesecake Bar recipe came from so if that is any indication how this recipe is going to be- it is going to GREAT! The original recipe she sent me called for strawberries but hopefully I’ll be able to find some raspberries that don’t cost a fortune and use them.
If you are interested in copies of the recipes that don’t have links just leave a comment below and I’ll email them to you. Happy Easter!
