My MIL provides the ham entree, our job is the appetizer platter that goes out 2-ish hours before the meal, and we've gotten to the point where we just kill it.

One hard, flavorful cheese (Whole Foods Robusto or an aged sharp cheddar are favorites)
One soft cheese (Brie, Camembert, or fresh Mozzarella balls)
Goat cheese spread (a zesty goat cheese that's been coarsely mixed with a fruit preserve or honey and some sliced or crushed nuts, I prefer using fig jam and almonds)
Olives
Marinated roasted red pepper strips (We make these ourselves.  You roast and skin the red pepper, then soak the strips for 1-3 days in a mix of rice vinegar, cider vinegar, a little sugar and some spices)
Marinated artichokes
A seasoned sausage (sopressata for preference)
Prosciutto
Two varieties of crackers (usually Triscuits, which are especially good with the goat cheese spread, and some sort of lightly seasoned water crackers)

Ham and lamb? On Passover? Both forbidden. No wonder the Jews killed Jesus!

I'm not cooking but going to the kids, so the local hospitals are safe.

We always have what everyone called "Those Potatoes", pretty much just shredded parboiled potatoes with heavy cream poured over the top and paprika. Baked until top is golden.

Ham, fresh beans, Cherry Coke salad, and a homemade chocolate cake with cooked white frosting topped with coconut; but the potatoes are the main attraction.

Pizza. With shrooms and pepperoni. The way Jebus likes it.

The ex has the praxlings for the holiday this year so I'm spending the weekend unearthing the grill/smoker from its long winter nap.  I've got a skirt steak and some asparagus waiting for me to light a fire.

Corned beef. But might cook a ham to keep the Muslims and Jews away.

Easter? When's easter?

I'm considering making some merguez, does that count?

Enjoy!
(I have a tequila/lime/cumin marinade that I highly recommend for flank steaks if you are interested)

I don't think lamb is forbidden on Passover- traditionally the shank bone on the seder plate was a lamb shank

Same thing I would make for my Passover meal. A bacon double cheeseburger with a side of shrimp salad?

Technically, Christians should be eating Jesus and drinking his blood. Next year I will be selling a special tool to transubstantiate regular meat and wine! Ok, it might look like a small rock. But it works! Get one of these babies and you will chewing on Jesus prime rib in no time!

Doing a traditional Irish Easter.  Leg of lamb, parsnip and turnip, potato, etc...

Buying the meat tonight.
 
2017-04-14 02:57:37 PM  
I have no plans. Family hasn't said they're doing anything. Day off from work. No plans to cook anything. But a few years ago I made a rather large pork loin roast that I slow-cooked in the oven and brought over to a boozy gathering the nucular g.f.'s bff's were hosting. I'm pretty sure I brined it with apple cider and mustard.

/barely made a dent in the roast
//about half of it went to waste
///it was good though

sdd2000: sandbar67: Ham and lamb? On Passover? Both forbidden. No wonder the Jews killed Jesus!

Traditionally, Jews will not eat any roasted meat on Passover, and certainly not a whole roasted lamb.  This is because Jews cannot sacrifice a paschal lamb at the Temple site (either because there is no Temple currently or because, you know, Jews can't exactly go to the proper site of the sacrifice).  Lamb may not be technically forbidden, but a nice Roasted Leg of Lamb is probably a no no.

And, yes, there is a roasted shank bone on the Seder plate that came from the back of the freezer and has been used year in and year out for 10 years.  That's just for its ceremonial purpose.

Ham is always verbotten.

Oh look, it's the Thursday Food Thread on Friday.

Just another day now but when my daughter was still at home (or when I was a child) we generally had a baked ham with a crushed pineapple/brown sugar/mustard glaze, scalloped potatoes, asparagus.

The last time I "celebrated" Easter with family, etc, my mother died the next day.

Anyway, deviled eggs.

You had better go back and dig up and talk to my great-great uncles who had been Kohanim Rabbi's in the old country. I very much remember one of their nephews (my great uncle who owned several meat packing facilities (on of which was Kosher) providing the lamb for the first night of Pasach.

Roast lamb (6 hours on low on the grill anyone who opens it while cooking gets killed)
Roasted Brussel Sprouts with bacon and wine.
Mashed Potatoes made with enough roasted garlic to kill every vampire in a 50 mile radius.
And a Cob Salad

Vegetarian option is a sweet potato gnocchi with some roasted squash an sprouts. Because I am not an asshole.

Desert will be homemade rum ice cream for the adults. Kids get make your own cookie, cookie bar.

Jews still perform sacrifices?

The only Easter tradition that I've been holding to the last few years is Easter Margaritas. Which really should be more of a thing.
