    We're doing "Easter Sunday" lunches here at work. I made cornbread dressing. Someone else brought chicken. We have the usual sides--broccoli casserole, sweet potatoes, green beans, salad, cranberry sauce, and deviled eggs.

    We'd considered bringing a ham too but decided we already had enough food.

    I'm not sure yet what I'll be doing. I've got a couple of single girlfriends and we may be getting together for "single girls' lunch" that day.

    What will you be serving?

    We got free tickets to Disneyland so hopefully everybody else will be at church.

    A disassembled Sig 556. Why do you ask? :supergrin:


    I don't usually do Easter dinner; I am working that day anyway, so it will be just another day.

    I'll probably have a Banquet.



    They were on sale for 88 cents last week at Wal Mart.

    Whatever the lodge on the ski slope is serving. :supergrin:

    Seriously though, I usually have something Greek. I have done Greek Easter before, both in Greece and with Greek friends here, and they really know how to celebrate. I have made spanakopita, lamb, baklava and tzatziki sauce. Our stateside Greek friends make it their custom to roast an entire lamb on a giant spit in their backyard. It's a little freaky. I don't even know where they GET the lamb. It is unbelievably good.

    Whatever my lousy-cook mother in-law prepares.

    I highly suspect it will be a processed ham slices with a sweet and sour sauce on it. Not good at all.

    Side dishes by other members in my wife's family (5 siblings) will be brought for Easter diner but, other than my wife and one sister in-law, they're all BAD cooks. I wish my mother were still alive. We'd go over there for Easter and eat a wonderful feast. She was an awesome cook!

    I dragged the Easter Bunny out of his hole and paraded his carcass in front of all the neighborhood kids.

    They all cried and now their parents hate me.:rofl:

    I've got several packs of unwrapped peeps getting nice and stale. They should be perfect by Easter.

    Oh yeah, I think I've got a ham floating about somewhere too. Go figure.

    Somewhere I saw someone made some sweet potato casserole with peeps on top instead of marshmallows. It looked downright weird.

    Toss up between baking a ham and deep frying a turkey. Deviled eggs for sure. Might do a green bean casserole, that sounds good too. Past that, I have no idea. Just another day for my wife and I, but we'll use it as an excuse to make a good dinner and have lots of leftovers.

    Not quite. Easter is the day our lord and Savior Jesus Christ
    moves the cursed boulder and comes out of his cave, steps outside,
    and if he sees his shadow there are 6 more weeks of winter.

    We are serving baked ham, mashed potatoes with gravy, string beans,
    pasta salad, dinner rolls, cinnamon buns, cookies, and some pies.
