Easter Menu?

I'm spending today prepping for the Easter dinner that may not happen. :) Between everyone in my family, there are about 4 different illnesses going around. Lovely. We have two of them but seem to be on the mend after a rough night of fever and stomach illness for one of the boys. It's a beautiful day and we are hoping that tomorrow's brunch/dinner will happen!

I've been going back and forth on the menu a bit but I think this is where it landed (there will be 17 of us):

Appetizer:
Assorted Cheeses w/crackers, apples, and pears

Menu:
Baked Glazed Ham
Egg Casserole (1 - zucchini, pepper, onion, and cheddar & 1 - spinach, mushroom, and swiss)
Potatoes (scalloped or roasted - my SIL is making them)
Asparagus & Tomato Mixed Green Salad
Cucumber Salad
Fruit Salad
Bread Basket

Dessert:
Carrot Cupcakes
Lemon Cupcakes
Mini Cheesecakes w/balsamic strawberries
Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookies

Beverages:
Juices
Coffee
Tea

We'll see if I get everything done. :) It's 11:15 and I have yet to start. I need to go grocery shopping later (we opted to wait and see how people were feeling today). Andrew is helping my sister and BIL in move this morning. It's a full weekend. Easter baskets and Easter outfits are just about ready to go and I'll have some help with the food contributions and house preparations.

We are rejoicing in the knowledge that Christ is risen and for the wonderful plan of salvation!

Happy Easter, everyone!

Oh no! i'm so sorry about the illnesses. I hope things work out and you can still have your meal -- it's no fun at all to cancel.

I'm working on mine too -- 17 as well. Sometimes it seems like a never ending list....

Do you have a good way to make ham? Mine always turn out too dry. Hope your family feels better! Happy Easter!

Hey Leah,

This time, I baked it in an oven bag with great results! I glazed it (I'll put the recipe up on the recipe blog sometime this week) for the last 15 minutes or so.

Hope that helps!

It's good to see that the illness didn't interfere with the good times.
