Would it be wrong to serve Hasenpfeffer for Easter Dinner? 
I like Elmer Keith; I married his daughter :wink:

    Why not?
    Apparently free thought is punished, and conformity is required, while peckerless cowards run the show.

    Do any of you have a traditional Easter Dinner that you have every year? When I was younger it seemed that most families had specific meals that they enjoyed on certain holidays where nowadays society seems to have moved away from a lot of traditions that we maintained in the past. Easter dinner for us was always baked ham, fresh baked horseradish, and hard boiled eggs. The menu never made sense to me until I was older and realized that my parents grew up without refrigeration and meat was a huge luxury and preserved meat like ham was considered a delicacy to poor country people. Ham was probably the most extravagant meal that they could have at the time and the leftovers would keep well without refrigeration.

    Being brought up in a Seventh-Day Adventist family , ham was a no-go, usually Easter dinner was based around roasted chicken....after I joined the Army and discovered the joys of pork, the holiday meal was based on a baked ham and sweet potatoes...

    We have a local pork producer that opened up their own retail shop, their self produced hams are the best, the kids ask for them, otherwise we vary the side dishes, gotta have mashed potatoes though, it is hard to beat ham gravy on mashed potatoes.

    We did just a basic boneless ham-- I got no problem doing a bone in, but I can take 1/3 of the boneless and slice it for my lunches for a week and still have plenty of ham left to serve the whole family for Easter. Then I made up 2 pork shoulders-- seasoned them real nice then roasted them in the oven at 275 degrees for 12 hours. The skin and bones will get browned up some more in the oven later and along with some white Bum Wine and various vegetable peels and ends, get turned into a nice pot of pork stock. The left over meat will become sandwiches and the rest frozen, thawed and used along with the stock to make a nice pot of pozole.

    Then I made some loaves of rosemary bread, stuffing/dressing, mashed potatoes, baked beans, asparagus, green beans with bacon, homemade meatballs with a tomato based meat sauce and Easter pasta from scratch...

    Growing up, we always went on a picnic to a lake or Cochise Stronghold every Easter.  Usually had burgers, beans, tater or macaroni salad, coleslaw and deviled eggs.  Since then I had to work most Easter Sundays until I retired.

    Ribeye, cucumber salad, baked potato, home made tangerine sorbet with home made almond cookies.

    My wife is Jewish. I'm glad I married outside of my family norm (4 gens of Southern Baptist preachers and their wives), otherwise it'd be another canned ham with pineapple goop burnt onto the top. And chocolate pie.

    (I do miss the chocolate pie).  ;)

    We do that exact menu here a time or two a month. Took me while to warm up to feta cheese, but I'm glad I did.

    Was the duck smiling at you?



    We did the usual Ham, scalloped potatoes, sweet potatoes, dressing, corn, noodles, deviled eggs, and dinner rolls.

    We don't do a whole ham. Just get 3-4 slices at the meat market down the block. One thing I did different this year was to make a whole chicken with the dressing in it. Dressing was much better and middle stepson doesn't care for ham so he had chicken......

    :p  Wife and I are also the heretics of the group. Dinner last night came from the local Chinese Buffet restaurant. It was pretty good though.
