Not sure what we are having this year, we have went to DH’s grandmas the past year or two and it was the traditional ham, potatoes, rolls…hmm pregnancy brain forgot the rest. I know we are going there this year but not sure if the menu will be the same…

@random7890:  Umm I think slow roast, like a turkey. It was good, but expensive. We had some international friends over and this was their tradition so I made it. Really good, but not worth the price.

I served it with a goat cheese, asparagus and citrus dressing quinoa, roasted brussels and onions and garlic cloves, and I forget what else. I think dessert was poached pears with a marscapone vanilla filling

This year it fell on my sisters birthday. We always visit both families (in laws & my parents.) So we will probably have whatever my husband’s mamaw cooks. & I don’t even remember what that usually is with so many holiday dinners. Oops! haha But I know for sure some birthday cake! haha

We usually go out to a restaurant with the whole family (my mom’s parents, my parents, my brother & SIL and 2 nieces, my other brother & SIL, and myself [and now my DH!])… Usually hit up a brunch after church 🙂

We don’t really have an Easter dinner but more like an Easter lunch. Depending on if we stay home or go to my cousins. If we are at home, we will probably fix eggrolls, sticky rice, maybe roast chicken. If we go to my cousins, we will probably just bring sticky rice down there so I won’t starve since I usually don’t eat what they cook. But I kinda have a feeling another set of cousins from NOLA may be coming here to visit and if they do, I hope they bring crawfish.

I cook for FH’s family, and I always make a briskit (sp?) and this year I’m adding shrimp stuffed twice baked potatoes and probably fresh green beans. Probably corn on the cob too, as his stepdad and stepbro are corn farmers 🙂

And angel food cake for dessert with strawberries and cool whip YEAH!

@lefeymw yum, I love bunny! That all sounds fantastic!

We usually do a pretty traditional meal –  bone-in glazed ham or a roast leg of lamb, with potatoes au gratin, a mixture of spring vegetables (fresh peas and mint, asparagus, artichokes etc.) and fresh rolls. We usually have a light lemon based desert as there is so much chocolate around!

I know we’re having lemon raspberry cheesecake with a shortbread crust, as soon as I find a recipe for one!
