Easter is nearing! Spring is almost here!
I'm considering offering to host an Easter lunch for my hubby's family. Last year it seemed as if there was a lot of hurt and confusion as to who was invited to what so if we host that means I'm committed to inviting a large amount of people into our small apartment. I know not everyone would come but I want everyone to feel welcome.
On my break today I started brainstorming recipe ideas for either an Easter brunch or lunch. To jump start my thinking, I text ed my family and friends and asked (the obviously poorly phrased):
What foods do you think of when you think of Easter?
My little sister: Reese eggs! (Yum-O!)
And after clarification: Ham and Au Gratin Potatoes or Potato Salad
Lyric: Deviled eggs, mac n cheese, black eyed peas
K10: Eggs, ham, white cake
Banana: Eggs. Marshmallows. Pastel sweets
To which I replied: Sounds great. We'll have scrambled eggs, marshmallows and lavendar cake.
I guess I should have clarified that I was looking for menu ideas.
What are your favorite Easter dishes? Would you rather cook/eat a lunch or brunch?
