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?


This is written for Six Sentence Story.

The prompt this week is “Type”.

    Ham. But I’m biased because I don’t like prime rib. And I love turkey, too, but you can’t make turkey without making mashed potatoes and dressing and gravy and rolls and pumpkin pie at the minimum. I got the bright idea to do Thanksgiving in July a couple of years ago, which was fun EXCEPT I think the kitchen was about 120 degrees by the time I was through, so won’t be doing that again as long as I live in an old, drafty house!

    • It will more than likely end up being ham as I really don’t want to do all the cooking involved with turkey. I too have made a turkey in the summer and yes it’s awful when the kitchen heats up, especially when you don’t have A/C.

  2. Prime Rib. I am not a ham person, just a ham 😀

  3. I love both, but rarely have prime rib, so I’d wish for that!

  4. Easter Sunday is always National Baked Ham with Pineapple Day, if that helps you decide. Tell him he can make you a Prime Rib for Mother’s Day.
