The Easter Feast

Post by Hovannes » Sun Apr 14, 2019 7:37 am

What are you cooking this Easter Sunday? Or, what are your plans?

I'm cooking the feast for my odar in-laws this year, so kebabs are on the menu because I'm a Hye, and that's what Hyes do.
Eleven adults is the number I've been told to expect. 8)

So far the plans include a ham, and an Easter cake (coconut with a few jelly beans on top). I'm also thinking about ribs, but others are talking about a crawfish boil, so we'll see. We're expecting at least 12, but up to 16 or perhaps 18 for lunch here at our house is possible.

In the past we've gone kind of all out. We've had Beef wellington, rack of lamb.

This year we're doing tacos :chili:

Ok it's set. Ham, brisket, ribs, dirty rice, potato salad, rolls, green bean casserole, and red velvet cake with cream cheese icing. Plus whatever some of the guests bring. Worship with communion at 1045. Lunch is at 1230 +/-.

Well, I've cut the chicken kebabs and they are marinating in the fridge. Red onion, red and green bell peppers and brown mushrooms are ready for skewering tomorrow. The grille is charged and ready to be fired up. Beer--- Taco Truck lager from Dust Bowl brewing Co---and Chardonnay is chilling. A few bottles of red wine is in the holding pattern. A frightening amount of home made salsa fresca has been melding since yestereday. My daughter made choureg (Armenian version of challah) and my bride baked a brown sugar sour cream pound cake this afternoon. For my F-I-L I bought some macaroni salad---his favorite. The number of guests have climbed to 14.
