Foodie Question of the Day

March 10, 2008 at 7:27 pm 8 comments

What are your food plans for Easter? (Sunday, March 23rd) and include recipe/links please…

T and I spend every Easter with T’s huge family (mom, dad, brother, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandma etc). We usually eat a smörgåsbord of fabulous food potluck style: broccoli salad, deviled eggs, prime rib, sweet potato casserole, orange fluff… ::drooling::

My contribution is usually some kind of dessert. I am thinking this year I might have to try my hand at a carrot cake + cream cheese frosting.

(Thanks Beth for the question suggestion!)

    My mom always has lots of family over for the regular baked ham, scalloped potatoes, rolls, lots of casseroles and side dishes, and cheesecake for dessert. Last year we started rotating holidays because we were tired of running back and forth, so we’ll be spending Easter day with the husband’s family… I have no idea what we’ll eat. I shall report back ;-)

    I haven’t made this year’s menu yet b/c I have two parties to host before Easter still but here is my last year’s menu:

    I also JUST made a carrot cake and my husband, brother and I decided it was the best one we’ve tried. You may want to take a look at this recipe too. It was a big winner:

    Hope that helps! :)

    For Easter we always have:
    roast lamb with green mint jelly. Asparagus usally steamed then seered in a pan with garlic and butter
    Baby red potatoes with butter and dill
    some sort of fruit salad
    for dessert it we always have strawberry shortcakewith fresh whip cream, lamb cake, and coffee.
    The lamb cake is acutally just a white cake with white frosting covered in coconut made in a lamb shaped pan. It’s cute and I’ve made it with my grandma every year since I can remember. For Strawberry shortcake we cut up fresh strawberries then take the extra ripe pieces and puree them with some sugar to pour over the top. We buy a container of whipping cream and make fresh whip cream to top each cake off.

    RACHEL, oh fo sho! Cadbury mini eggs are a must!

    KATIE, ohmygod. Your previous Easter menu sounds fabulous! Can I come over this year? ;) Thanks for the carrot cake recipe! I might have to give that one a go on your rec. :)

    BB, ::drooooling:: I am so craving strawberry shortcake now.

    I think my mom has one of the lamb pans that BB mentioned. I don’t remember ever actually using it though. Maybe I’ll make that this year. For the past two years, I’ve hosted Easter because I had to perform at the church here where we live. This year I get to go back home though, so I assume my mom or sister is hosting. I’ll make something though. Normally we would have ham, but my sister hates it so my mom doesn’t make it anymore. Maybe turkey?

    As kids we used to go to the Easter breakfast at our church & it was basically an Easter potluck. That was pretty good & it was fun to look at all of the different ways people decorated the hard boiled eggs that were put out on the tables.

    Good carrot cake is fully dependent on a good frosting recipe! The cake is only secondary :-) and must be very moist. No raisins in mine, thanks.

    ZEBE, agreed. I am not a carrot cake fan so its all about the frosting for me. I don’t like raisins either.
