    Default Easter dinner

    Has anyone made any plans yet? I just talked to my mom. She doesn't want
    any candy this year. Yay! Now I just hope she sticks to that! I told her
    I would make a big batch of baked apples with cinnamon and just the minimum
    amount of sugar. I don't want to use artificial sweetener because then some
    people wouldn't eat it. Plus I don't really like using it. I will drink it
    in soda but I don't like it in most foods.

    I don't know what all else we're having. One year I made chef Gordon
    Ramsey's potato and onion dish. I can't remember the name. Thinly sliced
    Yukon Gold potatoes, slices of white onion, dampened with vegetable broth
    and olive oil and baked until brown. I added a lot more onion to lower the
    carb count. It was really good!

    Yep, I'm making leg of lamb for me and my brother Tom. Will make something
    else for dh who doesn't care for lamb, but haven't decided what yet. Maybe a
    Costco rotisserie chicken purchased the day before. :-) Will make a nice
    salad and lots of asparagus to go with it. Strawberries for me and
    shortcake with the strawberries for them. My brother is bringing a jug of
    homemade Kahlua so I will have a small drink of that with him, and maybe
    even a tomato beer. The kids won't be here this year, so maybe I'll have
    two...or not.

    oh goodie. I guess we should all prepare for your inevitable rant about
    something irritating or disgusting that happened at the meal

    We had our traditional spring New England Boiled Dinner last Sunday. My
    niece was with me that weekend, so I planned the dinner for Sunday
    evening to coincide with when she'd need to go home. Her parents came
    down for the dinner and took her home, saving me some travel with her on
    the bus/subway.

    On Easter weekend I'm roasting myself a turkey because it's on sale and
    I love leftover turkey. So do my cats, and I recently cleaned out one
    of my freezers, so I have plenty of room for containers of turkey stock
    and the like.

    We just made our plans. My mom bought a ham at the new Whole Foods. I
    don't eat ham so she is making a hamburger patty for me. Anyone know if
    Omaha Steaks has pink slime in it? I hope not. I will be making those
    Gordon Ramsey's potatoes. I got a new baking dish today to make them in.
    All of my other baking dishes are a tad small and the roasting pan I made
    them in last time is really too large. I will also be doing some green
    beans. I want to roast them but need a recipe. I found one that sounded
    good but they were bundled with bacon and my mom said she thought nobody
    would eat those. My family is so blah. And ya'll thought *I* was a picky
    eater. Putting black pepper on those babies will be taking a risk. They
    loves them some bland food! I also got some dried beans at Whole Foods that
    are Jacob's Cattle Trout beans. I didn't really want to buy dried beans
    because it seems I am the only one who eats them but Angela wanted to scoop
    them up. I am hoping if I serve them, somebody will try them. The
    directions said to soak overnight then boil for 45 minutes in salted water.
    I will also be making the baked apple slices with a slight amount of sugar
    and some cinnamon.

    My mom will be making deviled eggs and assorted raw veggies. She will be
    telling my brother to bring pies. *sigh* At least one will be a sugar free
    pie.
