I will be eating part of an Australian Lamb Leg with other goodies. Probably salad, maybe some potatoes and maybe some dark chocolate. Not sure what else. I will be in Chicago with my parents visiting my brother.
i think i may finally bust the bank account and get a lamb chop......but rib eye packs are $5.99 this week and that's unheard of at the place i get meat. whichever, it will be on the grill by the pool!
We are going to a friend's house. She is making a spiral ham. We normally have lamb, but I don't think they are lamb eaters. We might get some lamb and cook it next weekend instead. I am thinking about making a roast beef to bring with us or something. Then veggies and a bit of chocolate.
Man. I dont understand people that dont eat lamb. I have lamb 3-4x's a week.. I love it haha..
Roasted Leg of Lamb, Spiral ham, roasted yukon gold potatoes with fennel, green salad and as many Reese's Eggs I can jam in my pie whole without hurling!
I suspect this will be an unpleasant experience.. I know because you know those bags of cadbury mini eggs? Not the creme eggs but the fudgey ones.. yeah.. whole bag.. dark chocolate ones straight to the face.. it was rather uncomfortable and I was hungover the next day haha..
It'll actually be tonight: roast leg of texas lamb in dad's smoker or the firepit, baconated spinach, romanesco cauliflower (everyone else is eating white beans instead of the cauli), green salad, thermonuclear garlic smashed taters (family specialty) wine, more wine, even more wine, and the innards of a choco pudding pie.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

I'm making a spiral cut ham, primalized au gratin potatoes, asparagus with hollandaise, a salad or some other kind of green vegetable. We don't really eat desserts in our house so probably won't have one.
I'm not doing anything special for Easter, but I made brunch for my mom and husband today. I fried up some local potatoes in butter with a sliced green pepper and then dumped in some smoked pulled pork (no sauce, just smoked with salt and pepper) and let that crisp up a bit. Topped it with fried eggs, tomato, and avocado. Then I made chocolate souffles (grain-free) for dessert. I had 7 egg whites I needed to use for something after making a big batch of custard for my Dr. Who premier party tonight.
I just had it a few hours back. We had a leg of lamb, roast veges (I ate a little pumpkin and sweet potato) and steamed broccoli and carrot (I ate lots). I also cheated with some gravy. We didn't do dessert (too much chocolate around) and I had (over the course of the day) about 2 ounces of dark chocolate.
My daughter is studying to be a wildlife biologist, so she's a huge animal lover, but she's all for eating meat. Her favorite phrase is "My ancestors didn't fight their way to the top of the food chain for me to be a vegetarian". However, she does draw the line at baby animals. So, we don't eat lamb for Easter when she's here. So our dinner will be:
Mashed potatoes (with lots of Irish butter and cream)
Salad Greens w/ Strawberries, Kiwi's, walnuts and a balsamic vinegar/olive oil dressing
And green beans sauteed in coconut oil with bacon.
I'm having a total binge day. Hubby & Grokling are chowing down on candy, I am chowing down on Primal goodies. Lots of fruit, leftovers, hard boiled eggs, and of course tonght the ever exciting and enticing ham shank with yummy marrow. Baked sweet potato on the side. Viva la Easter!
Oh you mean OTHER than the dozens of easter eggs my kids insisted on coloring but now refuse to eat? They like scrambled but are not fans of hardboiled.
I wasnt planning a big easter dinner - not Christian so it is a bunny holiday here, but I happen to HAVE a huge roast that must be cooked today so very very rare roast beef with horseradish, sweet potatoes and whatever veggies I happen to have on hand. I also have an open bottle of Temperanillo in the wine fridge that ought to be finished off. Darn.
MTA: because it is rare I dont have more to say

We took an extra-long bike ride today, so we're having ours tomorrow. It's Rosemary-Garlic Roasted Leg of Lamb, sauteed bok choy, sweet potatoes with LOTS of butter, and possibly asparagus with hollandaise sauce.
