It’s Good Friday

It’s Good Friday and past time to think about the menu for Easter Sunday.


Mine has been set for a couple of weeks. We are having several friends at our house for Easter Dinner and everyone is bringing a certain part of the dinner with them.


One friend is bringing a Smoked Ham from a local place that never fails to provide the best hams in town.

Our son and his wife are bringing the dyed eggs because I told him they would only find white eggs if it was left to me.

Another friend is bringing dessert and I am supplying the sides and drinks.


Side Dishes


It has been tradition to have Potato Salad with the Ham for Easter as long as I can remember. I will be making 5 lbs of potatoes into salad. Everyone knows to get to the bowl before my son. It’s nothing fancy

  • 5lbs russet potatoes boiled
  • 6 hard boiled eggs chopped
  • 3-5 Tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1-2 stalks celery finely chopped
  • salt to taste
  • enough mayonnaise to hold it all together

There you have it…..Nothing fancy. I won’t be able to eat this part.


The rest of the menu will be green beans (I am throwing in some white mushrooms) and carrots. OH…….and, of course, Easter eggs. carrots


Green Beans







For dessert, there will be……………..Come back tomorrow and find out.
