Yummy Easter Dinners

beachbabe

My mom always made a dinner for our family on Good Friday and on Easter Sunday. Usually one was ham and one was turkey. So I want to have that tradition with my new family as well. My husband and I don't have any kids yet though so it's just the two of us - and we are salmon lovers! Since I expect we will likely have Easter Sunday dinner at my in-laws (my family is in Winnipeg) after church and a potluck, I will be making a Good Friday dinner for us tomorrow. Baked salmon (with lemon and rosemary), garlic mashed potatoes, whole wheat pasta tossed with olive oil and some seasoning, steamed mixed veggies, salad, and dinner rolls with sparkling raspberry and grape juice! And Best Ever Cake for dessert (see a previous post). My husband is pumped!

What is everyone else planning for their Easter dinners? Do you have any traditions with your families?

Here's what I know so far

Can I come to your Good Friday dinner? It sounds so yummy!
I'm not sure what we are having at my mom's Easter dinner (My grandmother is in charge of that), but I'm making dinner for my Dad and that side of the family on Saturday. He requested having the traditional ham and potatoes but I think I'll mix it up a bit and find some fun recipes to try. I'm also making ceaser dressing from scratch (my favourite), I'm pretty excited because I haven't made it in a long time.

P.s. I might try your Best Cake Ever recipe!

Mmm

Beachbabe that sounds delicious! I love that you're making such a huge feast, but it sounds so healthy at the same time!

I'm not sure exactly what my family has planned for Good Friday but I'm sure it'll be fish. As for Easter Sunday, that's going to be a feast! My family is Italian so it'll be a 3-course meal of antipasto, homemade pasta, then a main course. We have half a lamb, sausage, and another meat that I'm forgetting right now. Plus a whole slew of veggies. I'm going to very full to say the least.

I am getting hungry!

The best part of holidays is always the food! Both meals sound great.

@Lauren- what is your caesar dressing recipe? I tried one not that long ago but wasn't too thrilled with it. And I recommend the cake, it is delicious!

You're, asking for my family's secret recipe?!

Well, here it is ... kind of. It's one of those things you make without specific amounts so these are my estimates:


3 Garlic Cloves
3/4 Cup of Olive Oil
3 - 4 Spoon-fulls of Mayo or Ceasar Dressing
2 - 3 Spoon-fulls of Honey Mustard
6-8 Squirts of Worcester Sauce
4-6 Squirts of Tabasco Sauce


Combine all of the ingredients in a small container and then press the garlic in. Add some pepper and then close the container and shake until it's all blended together. Taste it before you add it to the lettuce because you may want more Tabasco/Worcester sauce or garlic.

Don't forget to take photos of the CAKE!

It would be neat to see the whole spread.
