We’re Greek Orthodox and it’s always leg of lamb and rice.

For Good Friday, I’m having split-pea soup with vegetables. I just got it out of the freezer; the note on the bag says it originated on March 25.

It is also my mom’s 80th birthday and since my dad has Parkinson’s and can’t leave the ranch, we’re having an authentic chuck wagon (from the 1800’s) cook a supper from scratch for the whole family of 50+ people in the pasture behind the house. Chicken fried steak, beans, potatoes, peach cobbler, etc. Then an Easter egg hunt the next day. It is also my mom and dad’s 60th wedding anniversary. I don’t expect he’ll be with us next year, but I have been fearing the same for a couple of years now. Have to make the most of the time we have left with them.

My son and his family are coming to our house. Everyone’s favorite “special” dinner is turkey, yams, mashed potatoes, carrots, something or other in the green veggie category (salad, sweet peas or green beans), punch with white grape juice concentrate and ginger ale. My grandson is wearing braces, so we’ll probably have pineapple upside down cake (his favorite) instead of pecan pie (my favorite). And, of course, deviled eggs. He likes to help make them - we put the yolks, Miracle White, mustard and a little bit of juice from a jar of my daughter’s bread-and-butter pickles into a zip lock bag. Then he mashes until they’re well mixed, we cut a corner off of the bag, and squeeze into the egg white halves. Sometimes we sprinkle with paprika, sometimes not.

Going back to my old church for Easter services, apparently Westboro is planning on picketing there this weekend.

Honey baked ham. Hopefully enough for leftovers (HA!!) for sandwiches for later in the week. My brother and I will fight over the bone for split-pea soup.

We’ll also have asparagus (I live in California and it is now coming in), a green salad, cut up fresh fruit, “happy hour” before dinner (usually raw veggies and dips but chips for the kids), home-made crescent rolls, NOT from one of those pop containers, and for dessert, most likely a coconut cake.

Can’t wait!!

That looks like the ham my grandmother used to bake!! — Even the dishes look familiar.

We ate like that every Sunday after church when my grandparents were still alive...I miss it so...

Just looking forward to spending the weekend with my very excellent and lovely lady (also a FReeper), who unfortunately lives two hours away.

My daughter's school (private Catholic) is putting on a "Living Stations of the Cross," so I'm taking vacation from work to attend that.

Tomorrow is also our wedding anniversary, but we'll end up celebrating on Saturday evening...already have some reservations, and will look forward to a good meal and the company of my wife.

Sunday, we'll attend Mass in the morning, and then my in-laws are stopping by for a traditional dinner fare.

I am taking a picnic Easter lunch to visit our 2 college kids. Menu will be ham, cold chicken, deviled eggs, pasta salad, fruit salad, homemade pound cake, sliced strawberries with whipped cream...

This will result in many left-overs so taking containers to leave it all with them!

We’ve never done this before - kids winding down semester with lots going on this weekend, my foster dog recovering from amputation - don’t want to leave her alone - so we can all be together, eat outside, etc. Praying for a pretty day!

I make them nearly exactly the same way, but use actual sweet pickle relish instead of just the juice. And I have one of those pampered chef decorator things that I use to squirt the filling into the egg halves for a “pretty” touch.

I’m slow...I’ve been using a spoon to get the filling into the eggs. I’ll be squishing this year! hahaha

Barbecued chicken, potato salad, baked beans, & corn on the cob. Lemon-lime Jello cake (some people call it “poke cake”) with lemon Dream Whip frosting for dessert.
(& Russell Stover Easter goodies, olives, & cashews to graze on)

You’re welcome - it was one of the few useful bits of information from one of those endlessly forwarded “try this!” e-mail messages. Oops. “Miracle White” should be “Miracle Whip”!

Mass tonight, eating leftover homemade hot and sour soup I made yesterday. Good Friday fast and church in the afternoon. Saturday not sure maybe leg of lamb on the charcoal rotisserie grill. Sunday we are going to a brunch, where I’ll probably be pretty much be eating shrimp and salmon and maybe a slice of prime rib. Hope all of you have a blessed Easter.

Dinner and Maundy Thursday foot-washing service. Stations of the Cross Tomorrow. Recitation of Genesis Chapter 1 from memory on Saturday evening service and then ringing in the resurrection with bells and flower guild rushing in and dressing the altar for Easter.

Then Easter Service where I will serve as sub-deacon and Mrs. Theknow and I renew our vows after 40 years of marriage followed by ham and lamb at youngest daughter's house with extended family, swimming with grandsons in her pool and shooting water cannons at each other.

And lots of wine!

Forgot to mention, we will be doing an Easter Duckbill Platypus egg hunt. Our oldest girl once asked why we have an Easter Bunny when bunnies do not lay eggs, so I told her it was to divert attention away from the Easter Duckbill Platypus that is the real egg layer.

Surprise Easter gifts have ever since been from "Bill."

My youngest son will be home from college for the weekend. My oldest son, daughter-in-law, sister, brother-in-law any my mom will all be over for ham (and/or meatballs). After church service of course.

I’m somewhere in the house we’ll watch hockey too.
