    Default Easter Dinner

    Do you have a Easter Dinner? My husband has been hounding me about making an Easter dinner. Not sure what his problem is but if it will get him off my back about it. Its not like I dont do this every Easter. Usually a ham and whatever we are in the mood for.
    So any suggestions for a different meal instead of the same ole' ham?

    oh right, well maybe you could give chicken Kiev a try, along with some steamed asparagus that's flashfried in red wine, and a sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds, 3 leaf baby greens salad with toasted pine nuts and a rasberry vinnaigrette.

    Trés chic.

    Or, you know.. blood of the innocent.

    Easter dinner isn't really a big thing in my neck of the woods. I suspect I'll be dining on the traditional Jewish version- Chinese food from the local takeout place.


    Nevermind, it's Passover this year. Matzah for me, thanks

    At our house we dont allow "Jesus Juice" HAHAHA
    Before meeting my husband I didnt make a big meal for Easter. But he was raised strict Catholic and his mother always made huge meals for all the "christian" holidays. Personally I dont think God or Jesus would be upset with me for making cheeseburgers and chili cheese fries. But you know how it goes.
    Thanks for the menu suggestion. Your visual description is amazing and is making my mouth water. The salad sounds sooo good. I may just run up to the store and get those salad makin's.

    Being a seafood fan, I'd go for some shrimp, clams (maybe?) or whatever floats your family/guests boat....

    I eat matzoh all year round and I'm not Jewish. Only 100 calories and great with tuna, yum

    I had chocolate dipped matzoh last weekend. Actually not bad.

    We are probably going to a buffet for easter. Just never the same without the housefull of leftovers and the dishes!

    Easter and Passover always happen at the same time because Jesus was a good Jewish boy and the Last Supper was in fact a Passover celebration (Matthew 26:17-20, Mark 14:12.21, Luke 22:7-13, John 13:21-30). Don't hate me! I'm only quoting my sources.

    We always have traditional lamb at Easter. Roasted with rosemary, garlic and a smear of anchovy paste. Don't gag - you can't taste the anchovy and it makes the lamb taste kinda lamby-er.

    Passover isn't ALWAYS over Easter. It happens to be at the same time this year, but Judaism follows a different calendar (we use a lunar calendar as opposed to the solar one others use, that's why the dates of Jewish holidays can vary over at least a month or more timespan).

    Unlike other Christian holidays which tend to be fixed dates, Easter is also calculated using the lunar calendar and can occur anytime between March and April, although it's tweaked a bit so Easter Day always falls on a Sunday.

    Yes, but they don't overlap every year, which it would if they followed the exact same calendar as Judaism (since Passover is an 8 day holiday). Passover is dead in the middle of the range this year, there have been years it was celebrated in March.

    That sounds really good! What cut? I was thinking of making lamb soon, so this would be perfect. What sides?

    Anchovies tend to give sauces and meats a richer flavour.
