I firmly believe that Easter Sunday is the biggest cause for celebration all year long! As a Christian, my hope and joy are firmly rooted in the events of Easter weekend – the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus!
After preparing my heart in the weeks leading up to Easter and worshiping at church on Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday…it’s only appropriate to finish off the celebration with a delicious Easter lunch.
This week is a busy one – I’m starting a new work schedule and Paul is doing quite a bit of traveling each day for his job. I don’t think I’ll be super interested in spending all day in the kitchen on Sunday, so I’ve put together a very simple make-ahead menu that will be delicious!
Ina Garten has no problem serving store-bought entrees, especially when they’re presented in a lovely serving dish and mixed in with a few made-from-scratch items. If it works for Ina, it works for me. 🙂 I’ll set a pretty table and serve these things with pride!
