This is a first for me.
Sure, I've done Thanksgiving and Christmas, but never an Easter. Gird your loins, people.
For those of you looking to go all Martha on Easter, you can see a sampling of menus here. I'm particularly intrigued by this "Easy Easter Dinner"...
...because nothing says "Easy" like hosting your first-ever Easter for the in-laws, right?!
Here's my menu:
Green bean casserole
Au gratin potatoes
Bread and butter
Magic jello mousse
Carrot cake cupcakes
Easter M&M cookies
The Little Guy and I will be tackling the cupcakes and maybe even some Easter candy this week. For your viewing (and salivating pleasure), here's the Easter dessert I came up with last year:
It's a coconut cake covered with peanut M&Ms and candy bunnies. I called it "Easter Island." You can read all about it here. While that was fun, I'm going to try something new this year. Stay tuned!
