What to Have for Easter Dinner

My son and I were discussing the Easter Sunday dinner menu like we do for most holiday family dinners since we both love to cook and usually end up making most of the meal together.

This year we are having a bit of a dilemma as we cannot come to an agreement on what type of meat to serve.

He wants prime rib, he always wants prime rib and I think a nice ham or turkey would be nice, but I am leaning towards the ham as we’ve been eating turkey since Thanksgiving and frankly, I’m getting sick of it if that’s even possible.

I find it so much easier and less work to cook a ham than a turkey with stuffing, cranberries, mashed potatoes, glazed carrots, brussels sprouts, and mashed turnip. You don’t have to stuff a ham, peel and cut up turnips or rutabagas, peel the potatoes, make up the stuffing to stuff the turkey … and so on.

Well looks like it’s now down to two different types of meat to serve, what do you think prime rib or ham?

The prompt this week is “Type”.

  2. the carnivore says prime rib*
    or perhaps something like pancakes (Low on bad karma!! Pancakes! They’re good for dinner too!)

    *sure they both qualify, ‘cept the beef has more a satisfying taken-down-after-a-chase-over-a-sun-baked-savanah feel…. good eats!**

    • Yes prime rib is my favorite but the rest of the family, exluding my son who loves to cook, would rather see me cook over a hot stove all day. 🙂 Just kidding.

  4. Well, I’m probably doing turkey–for sandwiches, not all the other traditional turkey sides 🙂 Of your 2 choices, I’m not a ham person much…so I’d choose prime rib 🙂 But who knows–when I go shopping, I’ll buy whatever’s the best deal 🙂

    Ham. That rabbit is certainly staying low and not wanting to be considered part of the menu. 🙂
