Easter Dinner Plans


It is finally warm here and the trees are budding!  With the sunshine, I'm ready to work in our small raised vegetable garden, freshen up the flower beds and do a little spring cleaning.  This Easter our daughter will be confirmed in our church and we'll have Easter dinner at our house.
Here's what's on the menu:


I've never heard of this and I've lived in the south most all my life.  It has lots of food I love:  cornbread, beans, bell peppers, corn, cheese, ranch dressing and bacon.  It's got to be AWESOME.

Another salad we'll be having is Pioneer Woman's Pea Salad:  

This dish reminds me of church potluck dinners, family Thanksgivings and just says love to me.  Can't wait.

And of course, there will be ham.  I usually cook mine in the crockpot while we're at church and it's ready to go when we get home.  This brown sugar & mustard glaze is wonderful and the coca-cola gives it a bit of sweet while keeping the meat moist in the pot.  There will be a plate of fresh raw veggies and maybe this dip.

All of these recipes are make ahead which makes Easter lunch a lot less stressful.  I still haven't worked out dessert, yet.  I made this last year:

I still have dreams about it.  I cannot explain how delicious it is.  However, we are celebrating my daughter's confirmation AND her birthday, and since she is an avowed chocaholic, I believe that's the direction dessert will have to go in.  I'm still working on that and when I choose, I'll post pics and the recipe here.  

So, what are you having for Easter dinner?
