What's Good for Easter? - Jackie - 03-24-2013 03:15 PM

This is the section for newcomers to ask questions. I'm not exactly new here but I have a new question...

I'm looking for a good easy menu to serve for Easter. There will be 15-17 people and I'm the main cook. So, I'm looking for something kind of easy.

Anybody have a suggestion?

Thanks,
Jackie

A whole ham; some kind of sweet potatoes or winter squash; corn bread; potato salad w/egg (can be bought prepared); Pinot Noir.

I would second hand the PN for general use.

But what about sparklers. I love sparking wines during any feastivities.

We're having everything but ham - seriously. There will be 14 folks to feed and 12 aren't big fans of ham, so I'm doing a 13 lb turkey, 4 lbs of braised lamb shanks and a 5 lb boneless prime rib. Going to open a Pinot and a Cab - don't know which ones yet.

All I can say is I am glad we aren't entertaining...

Each menu sounds good to me for a crowd.

Sounds really delicious. Lucky people who are invited!

what about salad from fresh vegetables with cheese and mushrooms?


RE: What's Good for Easter? - Kcwhippet - 04-04-2014 10:46 AM

Nobody coming to our table would eat salad with all the other stuff there. No turkey this year. Lamb shanks in the slow cooker w/ garlic, onions, celery and carrots. Roasted boneless prime rib. Sides will be steamed broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and green beans, garlic mashed potatoes and shoe peg corn w/ cheese sauce. Since no turkey just going with something Cab based to drink, maybe a Meritage of some sort (99 Insignia maybe). However, there will be no salad. I just don't see that as part of this meal.

Love your thinking Whipster! WW

well, the menu says itself that it is enough of meat and vegetables. maybe, just to add some dessert..Undecided

I think KC's idea of a dessert would be something from the old country that comes out of a bottle, Irish or Scotch preferably!

IK pulling up 2 or 3 year old posts so you can comment isn't what this boards' about. Browny Fits the profile perfectly of a youngster wanting to connect with someone in the wine world. We've gone thru a bushel of them since the inception of Wines.Com. WW By the Bye Eng it wasn't Whipster who brunged up the ideer of dessert but our newbie BrownyTongue WW

It's only one year and it is Easter season.

You're speaking my language, Eng.
