Beth, I kept thinking about your commend all weekend. Who the heck decided to celebrate Jesus' resurrection by eating pork?! Every time I saw ham yesterday it made me laugh!

I have also had people ask me if I would eat ham! I never did understand why people serve pork to celebrate a Jewish man rising from the dead. Jesus ate fish, so that would be a bit more understandable.

We're having dinner at home. My husband is the cook in the family, and he's wonderful! He always makes sure there's plenty for me to eat. Other than the ham, he cooks everything vegetarian or vegan (no chicken stock in the dressing, or sour cream in the mashed potatoes). We'll have green beans, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes (no marshmellows!) a big green salad, rolls, deviled eggs (that's kind of a funny Easter food, isn't it?!)

Funny story not related to Easter, but related to holiday eating... We went to my mom's for Thanksgiving a couple years ago. She asked if I'd eat turkey. Ummmm... no. "Well, how about a ham? I could make you a ham." I was speechless. What part of VEGETARIAN do you not understand??? So, now, it's a huge joke with my hubby and kids. They love to tease me and say "but will you eat ham?"

I am brand new to being a Vegetarian leaning more toward being a Vegan. We are going over friends house for Easter Dinner. So I am taking a large salad to share and I am also making a dish made up of brown rice, lentils, mushrooms and onions in it. I will make enough to share incase anyone would like to try it. I will also be bring fresh fruit for desssert. My friend is also having other cooked vegetables so I know I will have enough choices to pick from.

What does your family do for Easter? Do you have a special dinner? If so, what do you take?
