Need to make a menu, grocery list, eventually grocery shopping, etc.  We do all the holidays.  My sons come, my brothers come and we send food (my sons bring them) to my sister-in-law (who is paraplegic), her aid, and the elderly woman who lives upstairs from her.  Have to get the food to them before we can start eating, so everything needs to be planned and timed so everything is done.  For certain holidays I make certain things.  Vegetables, etc. can change; but for Easter I make lamb and a ham.  My brothers won't eat lamb.  I also make baked ziti that day, along with a large salad, sweet potatoes, baked potatoes (for my brothers), vegetables, etc.

I think that we will stay home this year and celebrate at home.Not sure about the menu yet but I'm sure we will have ham and a ton of other things to go with it,for sure pickled eggs with beets and deviled eggs.I want to make hot cross buns too.

My sons insist on ham for Easter, which I 'bake' in the microwave. I will also have escalloped potatoes and probably green bean casserole. The rolls will vary, sometimes croissants from a Danish bakery, sometimes homemade. I haven't made deviled eggs in a few years, so I might add those to the menu this year. Dessert always varies, depending on my taste buds. lol

I know I'll have Easter dinner at church after morning service.  I think I'll take my broccoli salad and cookies.

I have to make a ricotta pineapple pie,I have to find the recipe I know it is here somewhere.It's like a pineapple cheesecake in a crust oh so good.It really compliments  the ham.I'll make my own ricotta for this.Homemade ricotta is so much better than store bought.rich and creamy and it's easy to make.

I'm scanning the newspaper to find a place that might be open on Easter.  It's just the two of us, and I'm not up to cooking a big dinner for just two.

I don't have any plans yet.  We might be going to my sister's house, but not sure.  I'm sure we'll have ham.

I'll make colored eggs and bake a sweet bread for Easter breakfast.  For dinner we'll have a turkey breast I have in the freezer, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, fruit salad  and some other vegetables.  I want a rhubarb pie for dessert.

I love to make the easter egg cookies for my grandkids.  The ones with the chocolate easter egg on top ( the raspberry jam holds the egg on top of the cookie)  It is on this site.  Last year they went crazy over them.

I have no idea what my plans will be.  With my daughter up the street it will be easy for them to make the walk down here of us up to them.
She makes a great side that goes well with ham.  It is a pineapple casserole.  Cheese and butter type crackers and crushed pineapple.  I just wait for that.
Ham is always good but between the two of us I am sure we put together a great meal.  After all it's with family!

I've been informed by the boyfriend that I have to make Easter cookies to send to his mom and grandmother...scratch that...I have to make "whimsical" Easter cookies.  So, we'll see how long these things take me to get done (and if they make it through shipping in the heat).
