I am making easter dinner for myself and my grown children. This year (well starting with last Thanksgiving) I have been healthy enough to make big dinners again after losting 100 lbs with MFP). And they are enjoying the wholesome cooking and their energetic Mom. So here is my list with sudo recipes. Sorry I eyeball everything!

Uncured ham cooked about 1 hour in oven for 350 with only cloves a a bit of water to keep from drying

Mashed yams with cinnamon to taste and a little bit maybe 2 tbls. olivio light

steamed broccoli they can put olivio light on their own to taste

steamed asparagus wonderful just plain

stuffed mushrooms with sauted in olive oil kale, onions, garlic, mixed with asiago cheese then baked while the ham is still cooking until soft

Kids are having a pie for desert but I am cooking apples into apple sauce (skin on) in the crock pot with some cinnamon and it makes the house smell great

    It's baked chicken here. I'm big on healthy versions of comfort food so we'll have green bean casserole that I've modified, carrots, sweet potato, baked potatoes, whole grain stuffing and yes even dinner rolls. I don't believe in denying myself so I go for a morning walk on holidays in case later I do want dessert or a glass of wine.

    We have to go to my parents for lunch tomorrow, and my mom is making turkey with cornbread dressing and I'm not sure what else. I will definitely need control to eat in moderation. Then tomorrow night I'm cooking for my own family since my husband has to work until 7pm. I've got ham, mashed potatoes, green beans and mac n cheese. Again....I will have to eat in moderation.

    Having my mom and stepdad over for Easter (my other siblings live far away and can't make it for Easter). Doing most of the cooking and we are having oven baked chicken seasoned with italian seasoning, roasted red potatoes coated in extra virgin olive oil, garlic, black pepper, and sea salt, a sweet potato casserole, and baby spinach sauteed with butter, garlic, and sea salt. Dessert will be easter candy and a GF buttermilk pie I am making tonight. Also we will all likely have a glass of wine with dinner.

    I'm taking my niece Mel out to Red Lobster. Other than that, nothing out of the ordinary. My family does not celebrate Easter.

    going to my inlaws where veggies are NEVER served, I will have to have my lunch jammed full of veggies to make up for it.

    we are having turkey, ham, scalloped potatoes, backed beans, and a ton of other unhealthy crap....

    I plan on sticking with the turkey (no gravy) and a bit of beans and potatoes and hope to god she gets a veggie tray so I can fill up on that.

    Tomorrow evening will be a dietary wasteland.
