Easter is just days away and I think I have it all planned. I will be making a ham. Yes, you read it correct. A ham. A pig. An animal.
This is the first Easter with my Gaga in heaven - she always made ham. I can't help but be sentimental. I loved that woman to pieces. So, a ham it is.
I also found a wonderful dish for an early brunch to use the dyed Easter eggs that won't have us consuming a ton of Deviled Eggs. But, if you know me, I can't resist making Deviled Eggs on a 'religious' holiday. >:)
I will also be making the pears with cream cheese and jelly beans my Gaga always made. I know, from that description it is kind of hard to envision what the hell that is. But I promise you - it's fuckinfantastical!
Homemade potatoes au gratin will be made and green beans with dinner rolls. Bam. Easter on a plate.
I won't be attending church or anything - duh. I don't 'do' organized religion - sorry if that's a news flash to anyone. I will be spending it with my family. I will be setting an Easter table, cooking scrumptious food and enjoying the day with my family.
For dessert we're making a creamy strawberry pie and possibly some Peeps cupcakes.
