Resurrecton Sunday is one of those holidays I like to keep very simple. My brother and sister-in-law will be joining us for a mid-day meal, followed by rest and relaxation.
We've hashed out a tentative menu as follows:
- Boneless Half Leg of Lamb
- Small Apricot-Glazed Sliced Ham
- Roast Turkey
- Baked Great Northern Beans with Garlic and Bacon
- Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges
- Macaroni and Cheese (as required by Mr.W)
- Quinoa & Broccoli Casserole
- Tossed Salad
I'll also be making a sugar-free cheesecake (probably this one), and my sister-in-law will likely bring some sort of sugar-full dessert, to be determined.
At times like this, I constantly re-think the menu. As I'm bombarded by fabulous ideas and recipes from other blogs, epicurious.com and foodnetwork.com, I can't help but think, "Oh, that would be great at our table this year!" However, I think our menu is pretty good and will satisfy all those food-cravings, dietary restrictions and holiday dish expections of our small group.
Overall, I think it's a pretty good meal plan. A lot of food for four people, no doubt!
What are your meal plans for this Easter? I'd love to hear about them!
