Easter Menu 2009

A Japanese friend was asking how we celebrated Easter this year. She is a Japanese Christian, but our church really doesn't have a lot of traditions around Easter at this point, so she really didn't know how to celebrate.

So, I told her I'd post on the blog here about the menu part of our celebrations. For all reading, this is not necessarily a traditional Easter spread!!! But it was special for our day, easy to make, and yummy! I'll get recipes posted as soon as possible!

  • Italian Sausage and Cheese Bread (instead of ham and scalloped potatoes!)
  • Hot Cross Buns (A TRUE Easter food - the cross symbol reminds us of the cross Jesus died on! Thanks for the inspiration, Heather!)
  • Raspberry and Blueberry Clafoutis - can't wait to read THAT recipe, I'm sure!
  • Strawberry Jello (jelly) with a ton of strawberries and a bit of banana in it. - I grew up on this!
  • Rice Krispie treats cut in egg shapes for decorating - I'll post some tips and pics.
  • Mugicha - barley tea, and Iced Tea

It was a simple menu because I could make it all the day before, and just enjoy our friends.

Oh my goodness, my stomach is growling at the thought of that sausage and cheese bread! Yummers! Can't wait for that recipe and the other dishes, too.
