I never accomplished it and probably never will but I'm getting close because I've discovered the art of pre-planning, cooking ahead and organization.
My family isn't that sophisticated to care, we're a very down to earth bunch and honestly they wouldn't be happy sitting at a formal dinner but I still like to set up a wonderful buffet of flavorful tasty dishes.
My Easter Menu is simple this year. Mr. Saylor loves to buy some special HUGE ham that will produce leftovers for weeks ahead. I'm in charge of the sides. Past years I've made two meats but this year we're sticking with the ham and ham alone.
My Easter Dinner:
Roasted Brussell Sprouts w/bacon
Mashed Potatoes w/Gravy
Green beans w/Almonds
Mini bundt cakes
Dirt pudding cups for the kids
I've got my new table cover, my new table runner, my forced Hyacinth bulbs are all set, can't wait to see how it all turns out!
A Blessed Easter to all.
