    Easter 2012

    What are you making, if you're hosting?
    I'm doing a spiral ham, scalloped potatoes, corn casserole, Italian green beans with potatoes and bacon, assorted salads and bread. I could use ideas for another side dish.

    What's in your corn casserole? I need a new side and the thought of broccoli again makes me want to hurl (even though my kids love it).

    We always do that potato dish with the sour cream and green onions. YUM! Since it's just me for Easter, I don't think I'll be cooking a big meal. I am tempted to check out deals on hams at the grocery store. It doesn't feel like Easter without a ham!

    Re: Easter 2012

    Husband/daddy left on deployment 2 weeks ago to the Middle East (8 to 10 months) and he's the one who loves to cook big dinners around the house. We (the buddy and me) are going to make cupcakes and that's about it. But I do have a surprise Easter basket for him that dad put together before he left. He's 9 this year and is hyper-aware of the fact that he's growing up and only has so much time left for these things (according to him).

    The husband loves to experiment, there is no telling what that man would have made if he were home this year. He spends weeks pouring over websites and cookbooks to try something new.

    Growing up in Louisiana, we always made Cajun inspired dishes. Check this one out:

    It's more of a Thanksgiving dish but it's so tasty.

    Re: Easter 2012

    Your kids love broccoli? You must have done something right. I'm not a huge Paula Deen fan but I do make her corn casserole every Easter.
    Ingredients

    1 (15 1/4-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
    1 (14 3/4-ounce) can cream-style corn
    1 (8-ounce) package corn muffin mix (recommended: Jiffy)
    1 cup sour cream
    1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
    1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar

    Directions

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    In a large bowl, stir together the 2 cans of corn, corn muffin mix, sour cream, and melted butter. Pour into a greased 9 by 13-inch casserole dish. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and top with Cheddar. Return to oven for 5 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Let stand for at least 5 minutes and then serve warm.

    Had to sign back in because I realized that I didn't respond to your post Harmony.
    Have a blessed holiday and I hope that your guy is back by your side soon.

    Ha! I found that online yesterday! But it is apparently impossible to find corn muffin mix (also looked for cornbread mix, if such a thing exists) in north central Canada. So I'm using Stovetop cornbread stuffing instead. Keep your fingers crossed for my dish. Thanks Bunny.

    My hubby is making moussaka for the first time I think he found the recipe in Food & Wine magazine?
    We don't do any of the tradional Easter food. Except maybe chocolate from Trader Joe's.
