Sunday Suppers: An Easter Dinner to Blow the Budget

We’re posting this too late for most of you to cook this for Easter Sunday. That’s probably a good thing since the ingredients get a bit steep and most of you are probably cooking for a crowd. So consider these two options: 1) Call your relatives; tell them you’re sick then head to the store. 2) Save this for a special occasion that doesn’t involve Uncle Ned.

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

    That leg of lamb was impressive when you first posted the recipe and it’s no less now. This is another great Sunday dinner, Greg.

  5. Top menu. The shops here are full of artichokes – I must take advantage of them.

  6. I *wish* those dishes were a quarter at thrift stores around here!
    Happy Easter, guys!

    My mom is coming into town next weekend, so I planned to delay Easter dinner for a week– this menu sounds perfect! Happy Easter!

    Awesome supper, you guys. Happy Easter!

  10. As much as I cook, you’d think I’d have tried fresh artichokes. I must rectify that this year!

    Those fingerling potatoes look delicious. Not sure that we can get them over here in Perth. Do they come in those gorgeous shades of purple, red and gold? Makes for a pretty special side dish 🙂

  12. Wonderful Easter dinner. I love lamb cooked just like you have done. I can almost taste it. I hope you had a wonderful day.

  13. Those potatoes look wonderful!
