Saturday dinner – 04/10/2010

Dinner this week came together really well with Ted deep frying stuff and me handling the sides and bread duty. After dinner we deep fried more things – dough wrapped Oreos, Hersey’s minatures, Lindt chocolate rabbits. And just dough. Very tasty.

Menu
Ted’s chicken fingers with homemade barbeque or honey mustard sauces
Roasted potato wedges
Green Beans
Buttermilk biscuits

Oatmeal Easter Rabbit cookies
the aforementioned fried dough

Easter lunch 2010

Sixteen people had Easter lunch at our place this year – 9 adults & 7 children. That’s by far the largest number we’ve had over for a sit down meal. Thankfully the weather was wonderful so we set the kids up on the deck outside with paper plates piled with food. The adults sat at the inside table, within earshot yet relatively peaceful.

Menu
Crackers & assorted cheeses
Black olive jam, cream cheese & rosemary boule

Baked Ham
Mashed Potatoes
Grilled asparagus with lemon zest
Glazed carrots
Green salad (from my sister)
