I still can't figure out what to make. the usual ham is an option of course....but wondering what everyone else is doing?

What can I do next?

I grew up always having Lamb on Easter..... So I've continued the traction with a twist; we have gyros.

We'll be having ham this year - we were going to do a prime rib but no one ordered it in time - oh well!

We'll also have the following (homemade):
broccoli casserole
mac and cheese
mashed potatos

We will also have some kind of bread. We do tons of fresh veggies too and those are always gone.

I'll probably make some hashbrown casserole for breakfast and make something else fun...

I LOVE ham, I am pretty sure it my favorite meat (besides a nice rare steak)...

So we (usually) do a:
Spiral cut ham
Baked Potato w/all the trimmings
Broccoli w/cheese sauce
Croisant rolls or Butterflake rolls

This year my sister is hosting so I think we might have
Scalloped potato and a big green salad instead and I think I heard something about someone bringing a pie!

My family does ham, Yuck! I am not a fan of ham, its ok cold and on a sandwich but not warm. My grandparents cook the ham, then the rest of my family brings sides. I am doing a bean and corn cous cous salad.



answers from Savannah on

I'm thinking steak. We have some in the freezer. Whatever we eat, it will be something that we already have in the house. We are going out to brunch for our special meal.

answers from Dallas on

I was asked to bring the desserts, which is ironic because I'm on a low-carb diet! I have recieved requests for triple chocolate cake, white chocolate pie, and pineapple upside down cake. I can't eat any of that! So, I will also bring strawberries and low-corb whipt cream.
