    BBQ boneless ribs, brown rice with green peas and saute onions, steamed broccoli with olive oil and Irish cheese. Hawaiian wheat rolls.

    For desert, fresh fruit plate, Blue Bunny Sweet freedom Ice cream (not for me), and European cookies.

    Happy Easter everyone!

    I'm cooking tomorrow and it's only for our small little family.

    I'll be starting the day with pancakes and bacon. I often do protein version but tomorrow we won't have any risk of not getting enough protein.

    Standing beef rib roast
    Green beans
    Mashed skin on potatoes
    Dinner rolls
    Pinot noir
    And ice cream for dessert

    Then beer time!

    Ham (glazed with cherry preserves, Dijon mustard, horseradish, and brown sugar), baked sweet potatoes with butter (spray butter for me) and cinnamon, steamed green beans, blueberry jello salad, and pineapple upside down cake (which I will pass on due to wheat intolerance). ~ Husband and kids are in it for the ham.

    We do breakfast and for Easter it's ham, egg and cheese croissants with fruit salad and whatever sweet thing my aunt brings. They're will probably be more (there always is!) but that's the gist of it. There always used to be a Baskin Robbins Bunny Roll cake (it was a fight for those ears!) but I bet there hasn't been one in 20 years.

    Starting off with shrimp cocktail, salad, salmon, and roasted red pepper and tomato soup. Then ham, chicken, and shrimp all with homemade teriyaki sauce. Add In a lobster, stuffed baked potatoes, scalloped potatoes/brussel sprouts in a horseradish cream sauce, carrots, rolls, and finishing with a chocolste ganache and raspberry torte and because I have healthier versions and small portions of everything I should be within an acceptable calorie range especially considering I'm under today. The lobster was a last minute add in because my hubby found some good ones at a reasonable price.

    Whatever I can get at the airport as my beloved brother passed away unexpectedly this week and I have to fly out of state tomorrow afternoon. My son in law will cook dinner for the ones that couldn't go as he is a great cook. Happy Easter and God bless you all. Stay safe and have a wonderful day.
