Barb - Your brisket looks fantastic! I put 2 of the 'cracked' eggs in the container of pickled beets ~ they will probably be there long after the kids go home.

***********************

Norm, what can anyone say, but, WOW !!!

That is one gorgous feast! How was the lime jello salad? Your pineapple upside down cake looks really tasty and beautiful.

Oh, and who got to have the Spiderman treat??? It was yours, wasn't it???

Well.... the cooking production is in second gear now.

DD is here making the filling for the cream puff shells.
She just baked a few dozen cut-out Easter cookies. ( Shortbread cookies )

The eggs are all colored.... and I didn't get to do one!  No  No

That's ok.... I will eat plendy!

I am steaming the kielbasi smoked one. I will braise the fresh ring with onions.
Then tomorrow I can just pop them in the oven to re-heat!
The turkey is washed ( 21 lb. ) and in salt and ice water on the deck soaking.
Slow and Low 225ºF it goes covered with foil tight, at 2 this morning.

I am still up! .... DD left.... Tina abandoned me, and is sleeping in the recliner, and the TV is blasting  while playing Baptist services.
I cleaned all the pots and bowls.  Right now I will make a hot cocoa, and have a few cookies DD made, and then get a couple hours sleep.

Son Jimmy will not be here. He has a nasty cold and is running a fever. He doesn't want to eat, and
he said he didn't want to bring his germs here. We will send DIL home with food for him to eat when he feels better....  

I gotta set the alarm for 6:30 so I can drain the 4 pounds of water out of the pan that they inject to make the birds weigh more.

Our Easter Morning Brunch:



Mini Muffins:



Eggs in Potato Nests:



Grandma's plate:



As we were eating, Tori is asking, "what can we cook next, Grandma?"

I think it'll be a day long cooking session. She's really excited we are going to try making Molten Lava Cakes for dessert.

We're going to be pretty traditional with our meal....rack of lamb, roasted asparagus, probably roasted potatoes and since I can't eat anything white, I might do something with a sweet potato for me.  I made DH his favorite dessert already and he'll have that.  We usually do Pierogi Day on Palm Sunday but I had to cancel it this year so no Polish food this year.  For me it doesn't matter because I can't eat them either...although I would probably have one.

I still have a bottle of my homemade sauerkraut that I need to use up before the 5 gallons I just made are done fermenting.  Maybe I'll throw in some Polish sausage and sauerkraut.  We usually do that on Thanksgiving but maybe I'll need to change traditions and add it here.  It'll just be the two of us this year so I don't want too much food hanging around.

Here's our dessert:

Beth & Jimmy, thanks. Happy Easter everyone.

The lime jello was good.  Not sure there will be a clamor for me to make it again though.  When I got the little stuffed bunny for Cassie, I wanted to get something for Charlie too.  The Spiderman egg was the last one left on the shelf and it had the kind of candy Charlie likes,  those sweet tart candies and jelly beans.  He was a little embarassed that I got him a kids thing but there were no Transformer eggs. He collects Transformers.

As soon as I finished taking the pictures, Charlie picked up all the dishes and silverware and got out our everyday stuff because he didn't want to hand wash the good china and silver.  LOL.

Hahahaha, Norm ~ I *love* it! No matter how old they are, our kids are still kids.

Here's our Easter Buffet ~ 3 things were dropped from the menu, it was just too much.







and the 'best' (according to son-in-law and both grandchildren) was the Molten Lava Cakes for dessert

Jana ~ lovely menu. We're not lamb lovers so I've never made any. But it always smells so wonderful and the whole idea of the leg of lamb sounds like an absolutely wonderful meal. I love the cheesecake, especially since it's 'traditional' at your table. That makes it extra special.

Barb, your meal looks divine. Bet they'd let you sit in Temple if you wanted to! I especially like that you made a traditional kugel with the egg noodles & raisins.

Imelda ~ ham is but once a year....LOL! Your pies look so yummy. I love coconut custard, and the little 'personal' size are just the type I'd be able to sneak off the counter and have eaten before anyone noticed.

Jimmy, have you and Tina recovered? So much food and not enough time for naps between feedings!

Andrea & I decided the potatoes we made are going to be repeated again. I par-cooked the whole yukon gold potatoes until just cooked, cooled in a quick cold water rinse to handle and scraped the thin peels off. Sliced thick and layered with some par-cooked onion slices & chives. I let a bunch of thyme stems steep in heavy cream, half & half and butter for about 20 minutes on a very low temp. The cream mixture got poured over the potatoes and then baked until all bubbly and the fragrance filled the kitchen. The casserole sat on top of the stove for a good 20 minutes to 'set' and let the cream settle into the potatoes. Not low calorie, to be sure, but Easter is but once a year!

Boy, you can say THAT again:

"We are a small group but boy we can put out some great food.Everyones dinner and food just looks wonderful.."

LOL

Small but mighty!

But, on another note......is anyone else as exhausted as I am???

The kids just left for Orlando. They are spending their last 2 vacation nights in a hotel near the airport because they have a morning flight on Tuesday. Tomorrow they are going to go to the Space Museum. I hope the grandchildren have a couple days to sleep in before they have to return to school schedules.
