We found a small ham at the store yesterday. We have some fresh green beans and bacon. Some potatoes (will probably be mashed with butter and garlic, but maybe baked with some grated parmesan cheese). And we have ingredients for cheesy corn. Mrs FredS is gluten free but I bought a cherry pie.

She fell an hurt herself this morning. I always give these things 24 hours before considering going to the hospital, so, at best I'll do all the cooking tomorrow. At worse, I'll be sitting around the ER while she's being x-rayed.

Prayers for your Mrs. I hope she’s OK. Maybe she’ll rise like the resurrection tomorrow morning. Yeah, OK, bad joke. :clown:

Anyway, I found some Porterhouse steaks in the freezer. I will grill those with asparagus and make mashed potatoes. My wife will make something for desert. We’re having a Zoom family gathering and birthday celebration too. The family in New Zealand, North Carolina, California and Texas is Zooming and celebrating together. This should be interesting.

Yep. And prayers, Fred.

We also found and bought a small ham. Will bake some corn, bread, cook a pot of rice, warm a can of green beans, and make peach cobbler. Will be making a couple deliveries tomorrow, to my father in law, and to my wife's cousin.

I'd normally roast a leg of lamb to be eaten with my parish sometime around 2am on Easter morning after our midnight service.

This year, I've got no idea. I'd go ahead an roast some leg of lamb for my own consumption, but it would only go to waste after a few days seeing as how I'd be the only one eating it and even a small leg is likely to be too much to finish quickly.

Maybe I'll get some ground lamb and do burgers or something.

Being Orthodox, I've got another week to decide :D

Lamb chops? Small roast?

I hate to see traditions go. We'll be having our yearly feast but without a houseful of people. Bittersweet. Sort of our collective Passover, I suppose. I'm tempted to eat it standing up.

I've contemplated doing a small roast. It will depend on the size of lamb legs I can find after tomorrow. The good thing about the years we celebrate Easter later than the Western Christians is getting really good sale prices on leg of lamb... and Easter candies. The bad is that quite often, ya'll already got all the good stuff :D

Out of curiosity, given how eastern Mediterranean that list is, are you a member of one of the Eastern Catholic parishes?

Antidoron (the non-Eucharistic bread we hand out during communion and at the end of Liturgy) or one of the many traditional Easter breads we make once Lent is over and we can cook with eggs again? I'll be missing out on both this year, but am planning on a fat stack of French toast for Easter brunch as a consolation prize :D

I hang with the Italians, Irish, Mexicans, Portuguese, Filipinos, and Poles as the closest Armenian Catholic church to me is in a town far, far away.

Both, and I've really enjoyed the experience both times. In Italian, we say of a good hearted person, "He's as good as bread." Don't tell anyone, but Orthodox bread is demonstrably better.
