Today is Easter. It is the feast day of all Feast days. It is a time to celebrate and enjoy springs bounty. Here is what I am having for dinner.
First off we will start with appetizers. I love this Baked Brie that my Sister-in-law Janet makes.
I also like to serve fresh Guacamole with Chips
I start my prep stuff three to four days early. I brine my turkey for a few days before I bake it. Brined Turkey makes your bird moist and delicious.
Not to mention it makes the brownest crispiest skin.
I love to make these Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes . They do not require cooking on the stove top so it makes room for other things.
I know it is not much to look at, I also love to serve Macaroni and Cheese. Mine is with a twist. I add smoked gouda to make it over the top good.
I also love to serve corn on the cobb. When it is in season it is so good and sweet. I try to get as much of it as I can. I then like to freeze it for later in the year.
Baked Beans are also a staple at my Easter Table. You cant go wrong with a big pot of beans warm on the stove.
I love to make my Parker Rolls and bake them in a Cast Iron skillet. It makes the bottom brown and crunch. The middle is melt in your mouth good. With a slather of butter I am in heaven. Not to mention the leftovers if any are great the next day slathered in jam.
We need something to wash all this down with so I have a drink for the kids as well as the adults. Living in Virginia you should have tea at least once a day. We love our sweet tea. This is my version of a Arnold Palmer.
So for an adult version of something on Easter why not have a Shandy?
So there it is my line up for Easter Dinner. I hope you will incorporate some of my recipes in your Easter dinner.
Peace be with you ,
