Easter Sunday...Planning the Menu, Tallying the Guests

Pin It
Easter Sunday is one of my favorite holiday menus. I don't have to think much about it, or make too many choices, as it usually revolves around a baked ham or a leg of lamb. In my family, we usually have a late lunch, and that makes it easy to go with the ham. Besides, a ham is more informal, more economical, and less work. There are many other occasions to have lamb, including Christmas Eve dinner, so the choice for this holiday is fairly easy. Now, the big question is which ham and who is going to make it. As you can imagine, coming from a family of gourmet cooks, everybody's ham is the best ham, so choosing a recipe presents the biggest challenge of the whole enterprise. Whatever the recipe, I don't have to worry much about the ingredients, as they are fairly basic and most are sitting in my pantry.

To me, Easter is all about deviled eggs,baked ham, asparagus or new baby peas, strawberries and coconut cake. With that in mind, here is what I am going to make this year. The menu is for 12 people

Easter Lunch Menu

Asparagus or Petite Peas with Onion
Strawberry Salad Glace
Home Biscuits

For this holiday, your best bet is to shop at Publix, where most of the ingredients are on sale, including leg of lamb, if that's your choice, and fully baked hams for $
