LOL discuss the menu.  Don't do it, although it already sounds like you aren't lol

We are not allowed to host any holiday.  I told DH the other day since they won't let us, I think I will just pick one and send out invitations to it.  They can come if they want or not.

It's funny. The more I think about it, I guess people do eat different things at Easter... We always ate ham (DH told me his family always ate ham too), but I guess some people do lamb.

Well, I am making ham, yummy potato casserole, green bean casserole, and corn. MIL is bringing rolls and jello cake. And I will make sure DH remembers to make the iced tea so there isn't a repeat of last time. *eyeroll* lol

Dear Lord, please do not let her bring that other jello thing she makes with the carrots that makes me want to gag because there won't be enough other people to distract her and she will notice that I don't eat it.
Amen! lol

Easter at my Landlady's in Italy consisted of veal (which I don't eat) and rabbit (which I didn't know I was eating at the time). (Sigh....)

Your menu sounds yummy to me.

The only lamb I would eat would have to be chocolate and hollow on the inside

It's true, my IL's do a turkey at Easter.  I'm so glad they don't do lamb.  I knew a lady who would actually get a real-live baby lamb in the spring and feed it and care for it and let her kids play with it and then butcher it and eat it for Easter.  Ugh-ugh-ugh!

I would really like to eat something called "yummy potato casserole" - I really hope that's the actual name, if not, it should be.

Scoop, you just made me gag.  That is foul, omg.

I have a pet rabbit. He doesn't like me anymore. Since I got married he doesn't get enough attention and lets me know it. Plus he can't be left to run and play because of our Rottie whom I am sure would LOVE to have rabbit for Easter lol

That's what the recipe was titled when it was given to me. :-)

Bag a frozen hashbrowns put into a casserole. Mix up a can of cream of chicken soup with a half cup of sour cream and 8 oz. of cheddar cheese. Pour this over the hash browns and bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.

I always put extra cheddar on the top. And this time I am going to dice onion and green pepper to put in it. It is delicious. :-)

This is our comfort food staple around here. I've been being bad and crushing potato chips and putting it on top too. Because, sour cream and hashbrowns aren't bad enough. : )

LOL, Holli I just logged in to say the same thing.  We crush up salt and pepper chips and bake on top.  Sooooooo good.

As someone who usually only makes a recipe from scratch; my food snobbery has been placed aside to make this dish. It's great.

Plus, my MIL loves it when I make it. Zero sum...I get to cook...and she is happy to eat.  ;)

LaurieS

ok... I'll trust you guys on this one and I'll try it.
