Our Easter Dinner 2012

Happy Easter!  Hope you all are getting to enjoy Resurrection Sunday with your family and/or friends!  Since we couldn't spend our with family, we had a couple of friends over for an Easter Dinner after Church.  We ate  food, talked and also played some Pictionary Man, so it was a great time had by all.  Here's what I served...
 You also get a glimpse into my (rather cluttered but it works) kitchen and, for today, buffet line.
 Roasted veggies.  (Summer squash, Zucchini, Onions, Carrots and Garlic with a ~ 1t. EVOO drizzled over then and sprinkled with touch of 21 Seasoning Salute from Trader Joes.  Roasted for ~1 hour at 375 degrees.)
 Hasselback Potatoes (although I baked these for 1 hr. at 375 today instead of microwaving them like my recipe), and Baked Chicken breasts with 21 Seasoning Salute.
 7 Layer Salad.  (Secret family recipe.  Soooo good.  I can hardly ever get enough!  In fact, I'm gonna go have some more...)
 Fresh Squeezed Lemonade in my new Mason Jar Style Drink Dispenser from World Market.  (You can see it here.)  I'm a little nervous abotu the spout because it's just plastic, but hopefully it will be fine.  Love the look, love the glass, loved the price and had been eyeing them elsewhere in the past...
I also served Hot Cross Buns (what Easter Dinner is complete without them?) and a Trifle of layered homemade chocolate cake, strawberries and cool whip (forgot to get a pic of it though.)  Oh and I made a sugar egg this year, as pictured above, a couple weeks ago.  I realized it wasn't nearly as fun to make them without my Mom though. :(

We had a great morning at Church celebrating the fact that He is risen and a good lunch with friends.  Hope you all are having a happy Easter too!  :)


  1. Yum!! Everything looks great!!! Wish we could have been there - the trifle sounds yummy! And, we'll have to do Sugar Eggs together again sometime. :)

    1. Thanks! SO wish you could have been here too! Trifle was because I had made a mistake with the original dessert--and it turned out well, even though I don't think I'd ever had one before! :) And yep, we'll definitely have to do Sugar Eggs together again! :)
