Menu Suggestions For An Easter Dinner Party
An Easter party is relatively easier to plan (and execute, hopefully) than the dinner, on the same day. The dinner must consist something for each guest as, Easter is a fun occasion, and you do not want anyone going home feeling morose.
Do you? Well if you have had a certain grudge maybe! But seriously, you should try and plan the dinner dishes, as such it contains some of the guest’s likings. It might be hard to inject some personal touch (and liking) to the preparation and dinner, but guests are the first priority. As there is a wide variety of dishes, you are allowed to choose from, it might be a bother.
Going With Tradition
Glazed Ham and mashed potatoes, along with fresh vegetables (seasonal) is known as the traditional Easter meal. Well, can you blame anyone? The combination, of the two, is so good that it is popular with a varied number of age groups. It is advised that you buy the vegetables straight from a farmer’s market (if one is available nearby). Doing so will ensure that the vegetables are fresher, than the ones available at supermarkets.
You must be thinking, ‘Really?”. Our answer is yes, really! A meal not always has to be one, which takes you in a roller ride (but it rocks!), or feeding on which results in an extended time clearing your bowels, etc. If your family consists of health freaks, or that you are very much dedicated to your work (and cannot afford a full day in the bathroom!) a healthy meal may be the choice you should prefer. Have lean cuts of meats (fishes, pork, beefs, etc.), fresh vegetables and fruits. When cooking these (or having something ‘oil-cooked’), make sure the oil is low on saturated and high on unsaturated fat.
As is mentioned above, ham and potatoes are a traditional meal and most of your guests will be expecting the same. But you do not have to prepare them as mentioned above (i.e. glazed and mashed). Flip the coin on the other side and prepare the same as barbeque. Grill the meats and pour on them fruit preserves, or sauce, etc. Potatoes, and other side dishes, can also be grilled and presented in a different way.
Keeping the mood of Easter, you may prepare something out of carrots. You know, carrot equals to bunnies equals to Easter! You may also drop in other fruits, in your dessert, to add to the taste. Having a fruit dessert will also ensure a healthy finishing to an otherwise ‘generous’ meal. If you know, you will have children as guests, you may also prepare Easter eggs and cupcakes for them.
Easter brings a fun, and festive, mood. Do not keep your meals bordered within tradition and/or what you usually do. Mix things up and create something that evokes fun and tastes ‘funky’. Know what your invited guests like and then create them with an added personal touch. Hope this helped and that you will be having a different but much more fun Easter than you had last year.
