It’s Spring! I think you may need to hear that because many of you have told me you’re still ankle deep in snow. Even here in the south our temps dipped into the 30’s last night and I’m sitting here head to toe in my flannel PJ’s.
Nevertheless, Easter Sunday is just around the corner and I’m planning my Easter menu this week! In the spirit of all things new and celebrating the resurrection of Jesus I’m excited about our family get-together! I thought I’d throw out my menu and ask you about yours…but before the food, how do you like these beautiful decorations?
This table is deeeeelightful, don’t ‘cha think?
And I wonder how much this arrangement would cost? Maybe a smaller version would be affordable!
I so love this for a kids table although the chocolate bunnies would last about 2 minutes!
Okay…now for the food…
One of my favorite southern appetizers is Pimento Cheese, my friend Vicky told me she’s never had pimento cheese! Have you?
The recipe I use all the time is: HERE. It’s really good but this year I may try a new recipe…maybe this one:
Spicy Roasted Red Bell Pepper Pimento Cheese!
I love this salad and we’ll be having it at our Easter Party!
Spinach & Strawberry Salad
And Easter is one of the two times a year I serve ham…(Christmas morning is the other time!)
My Sis is bringing our family’s favorite mac & cheese…it’s a Martha recipe.
Martha’s Mac & Cheese
The Husband la-la-la-loves asparagus…so that’s a must!
Oven Roasted Asparagus
And for dessert I’ll do something involving strawberries!
Before I was diagnosed with Celiac, I made this Strawberry Banana Trifle all the time!
I may try it using gluten free ingredients…if you aren’t GF, you’ve gotta try this, you’ll love it!
Another BC (before Celiac) favorite of mine is this EASY SUPER MOIST Strawberry Cake! Do me a favor and try this guys…no kidding. I haven’t figured out how to make one gluten-free, but I don’t need to …we have a local bakery (Gabriel’s) and they have a special-order Gluten Free Strawberry Cake that tastes just as magnificent as any cake anywhere! So I’m ordering one for Easter!
I ran across this beautiful strawberry cake recipe from Southern Living and thought how great this would be for Easter!
So there’s my menu! What’s on your list for Easter lunch?
Sending you hurry-up-spring wishes today my friends!
