Growing up, an Easter feast was a seasonal given. Some large cut of meat, plenty of Champagne (we're Episcopalian after all, so when I say plenty, I do mean plenty) and all the trappings of a celebration meal. Somehow, though, despite the Easter Bunny's best efforts, I just never felt very excited about it. Without much of a sweet tooth, the Easter basket wasn't such an exciting thing for me, and though I loved wearing a really poofy princess dress with all the trimmings to church, that pretty much felt like the highlight of the day.
This year, I want to revive Easter dinner, to start my own Easter tradition! This is my dream menu -- springy and delicous, and with plenty of green on the table, I think it sounds just about perfect.
What's in your traditional Easter dinner?
If you're anything like me, Easter will leave you with some half eaten (usually headless, certainly earless) chocolate bunnies. You might try baking them into these:
Happy Easter, bunnies!
