We know a lot of you like to eat lamb on Easter. We do too. But ham is far more economical when it comes to serving a crowd. Here’s a meal that’s sure to please the masses.

    Great round up, Greg! Unfortunately we will be away again next weekend, uenxpected trip on our menu, so no cookign for us. Phil is a huge fan of lamb, though. I might make a special meal the following weekend just for the fun of it…

    I am way behind reading your blog, the snow outside makes it for a nice Sunday doing nothing at home, and reading food blogs! ;-)

    I loooooove deviled eggs. I am still scratching my head over what to serve as a veggie main, since we’ve never really done Easter dinner before, but once you have a kid I think it’s the law.

    A great dinner — save the rhubarb pie. Just cannot get behind that one. That’s fine, though. While everyone is having pie, I’ll make myself a ham sammich. :)
