What's for Easter Dinner?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

We will be having an evening meal, with Ham, Brisket, potato and macaroni salads, baked beans, green (lettuce) salad, probably a couple of more veggie dishes of yet-unknown type, mom's hot rolls, a relish dish, tea, juice and soda.

We'll probably have a few desserts; a pecan pie, a strawberry cake, most likely a couple of others, and ice cream or whipped cream for the top.

What's the plans for your celebrations?

As always a Leg of Lamb from our last year's crop of lambs. We raise and sell market lambs so what else could we have! Debbie

We are having Iowa Ham Balls, Polish sausage, dumplings (pirogi), yellow rice, unknown vegetable dish, salad, Jello beans, pickles & olives, deviled eggs & rolls. For dessert a three-layer cocoa cake with cocoa frosting, real vanilla ice cream (we are also celebrating a birthday!). Eggnog, coffee or juice to drink. This menu is slanted towards the Polish side of the family, but I don't know what my MIL is going to think of the ham balls!

I am going to my Dad's for dinner. I volunteered to bring scalloped potatoes and a dessert. Still thinking on the dessert! I might make a big batch of oatmeal rolls as well. So other than that I don't know what I am having, but I am sure it will be good. My step-mother is a great cook!

We are having a big ham, scalloped potatoes, glazed carrots, salads (3), asparagus, homemade rolls, and for dessert a chocolate cheesecake and carrot cake. My sister and I always decorate Easter cookies, so there should be some of those still around by Sunday.

Jean, What are Iowa ham balls? I grew up in IA but NEVER heard of them. Dinner: turkey, potatoes, deviled eggs and I haven't decided on the rest.

-- DW (djwallace@sotc.net), March 28, 2002.

Our dinner sounds a lot like yours Christine; ham, potato and macaroni salad, baked beans, deviled eggs, relish dish and rolls. We usually just snack on easter candy for dessert! We always eat our meal a couple of hours after we get home from church, about two-ish.

DW, the ham balls are a recipe from one of Taste of Home's magazines. They are ground ham, ground beef, graham cracker crumbs etc mixture baked with a tangy sauce. They are very good! I can post the whole recipe if anyone wants it.
