My Semi-Casual Easter Menu

Posted by on Apr 6, 2012 in Easter Menu | 2 comments

This year I am giving my grandmother a break and hosting Easter this year. I have a small family, it will be a total of 7 adults and my 2 kiddos. Problem is I feel like I am barely keeping above water these days. I announced this at Christmas, so like anyone else, I am a semi-last minute person. I love to host and entertain, a trait I get from my grandmother. In fact there are not enough summer weekends for me to host all the parties I want to host, but then again it all sounds good now, right? Ok, so here is what I am serving for Easter. I’ll post recipes and pics afterwards.

Appetizer:
White Cannellini Bean Bruschetta Hummus

Dinner:
Cherry Honey Dijon Crusted Pork Tenderloin
Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Fennel and Fresh Herbs
Fresh Spring Green Bean Salad w Champagne Honey Dressing. This recipe has inspired me to recreate something different

For my sister: Small Ham Nugget from Wellshire Farms (it is cute, the size of a softball) made in a bed of roasted sweet potatoes, carrots and endive

Dessert:
Coconut Milk Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta to replace the Greek rice pudding my grandma makes each year

If time allows, I will make a Lemon Chia Seed Cake with a Cherry Glaze

What are you making for Easter or Passover?
