Easter Menu Roundup

I know this post may be a little late for all of you very well organized people who have had your Easter menu planned for weeks  now.  But for those of you last minute girls, (I am one of you), today’s post may be of some help to you.

I went through and picked out my top four Easter menu recipes in the basic menu categories.  If none of them appeal to you be sure and check out my Recipe Index at the top of the page where there are lots more ideas for you.

    My 18 year old granddaughter came over today (Saturday) to help prepare the food for our Easter dinner. I always like to have everything done ahead of time for easy serving when the guests arrive. I had already made the Carrot Cake cupcakes so all we had to do with those was to frost them and decorate them with sprinkles and toppers. We then made the yummy Martha Stuart Mac & Cheese that my family absolutely loves. I had cooked the hardboiled eggs the day before so we peeled them and made deviled eggs, here again all ready to serve. We prepared a broccoli casserole – just have to put that in the oven at the right time and I purchased rolls and the ham at Costco. We will have a big salad with romaine, mandarin oranges, red onions, sugared almonds and avocado with my own “house dressing”.
    I got some adorable candy toppers on etsy.com for “bunny poop” with a cute poem and filled plastic bags with malt balls for each person at the table. We will have 18 – 20 people and I am looking forward to the festivities after a wonderful church service in the morning.
    Thank you LeighAnne for your awesome blog that I receive each day and hope you have a Happy Easter.

    I made the Salt & Pepper Potatoes, Parmesan Roasted Asparagus and the Angel Pie for our Easter Dinner. We had salmon since everyone decided they didn’t want ham this year. All was easy and delicious. It’s our second year making the angel pie.
