Easter Menu


After much head scratching and begging suggestions, the Easter menu is set. Doug first asked for Fried Chicken. "Fried Chicken," I asked? I'm not certain what he was thinking...he said something about a Southern meal. I gently suggested beef, as not all the children enjoy lamb, and my mother-in-law does not like ham. So beef it is. Beef Tenderloin on the grill, simply seasoned with a cracked pepper beef seasoning, is always tender and delicious. Doug also suggested Twice Baked Potatoes, but then, he always does. We'll have an antipasto before, some nice wine, and the traditional Hot Milk Cake afterward.

Easter Menu

Beef Tenderloin
Horseradish Cream
Potato Rolls

Hot Milk Cake sounds delicious! Is the recipe on your blog?

Just click the words, Ashley and you'll find the recipe. It's a family favorite!

Every year it's the same for this Polish family and all the non-Polish people who are now a part of it: Ham (but, of course!) and Polish sausage.

Think I'm coming to your house for beef! :)

Nice menu Barbara. It's making me hungry :-)

Carina said...

Your menu sounds great, Barbara! I have been meaning to try your hot milk cake recipe since you first posted it; thanks for reninding me about it! I'm working it into my menu next week! :)

BTW, do you do hot cross buns for Good Friday? I am still in search of the "perfect" recipe!

scmom (Barbara) said...

I'll set you a place! You can bring your ham -- I love ham. And sausage.

Haha, Esther. I'm actually thinking of just eating antipasto and cake. And wine, of course.

The recipe I use for Hot Cross buns can be found here. I'm not sure it's perfect, but I've tried a few and it's the best yet.

I'm SO glad you're staying! Your Chicken Cordon Bleu and Saturday Night Pizza Sauce have become mainstays in my kitchen. If you left, our family would be crushed! Thanks for all you do!!!
