Easter Dinner Recap

Wow! What a special Easter week this was! Good Friday’s service was such a blessing as we were reminded of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross in our place. Then Sunday we rejoiced and worshiped and sang and had sweet fellowship with our church family as well as our physical family.

After our morning service we gathered in our home with our girls and their families, and also some dear friends. My daughters and I collaborated on the meal, and it was so much fun to work together and put out a spread we all enjoyed. Here’s the menu:

Glazed Ham
Gourmet Potatoes
Corn Saute’
Green Salad with peaches and Craisins
Deviled Eggs
Cheddar Biscuits
Coconut Cake ~ Chocolate Fudge Pie

My contribution was the cake, ham and potatoes. These Gourmet potatoes have a long history in our family. They are perfect for a busy meal because they are all made up ahead of time and then just slid into the oven to bake for 30 minutes.

Gourmet Potatoes
6 medium potatoes
2 C shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 C butter
1 1/2 C sour cream (I used light)
1/3 C chopped onion
1 t. salt
paprika

Peel the potatoes. Leave them whole. Cook in boiling water ’til tender. Cool.
Shred potatoes coarsely. In medium-sized saucepan, melt butter and cheese. Stir ’til melted. Remove from heat; blend in sour cream, onions and salt. Fold in potatoes and pour into a 2 qt. casserole dish.
Sprinkle with paprika on top. Refrigerate overnight. Bake @ 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

The meal was all so good, and it was such a blessing having help with the meal. What fun it was to work together in the kitchen with my girls.

Teach your daughters to cook! It is so rewarding! Do you enjoy having help while you’re cooking? Have you taught your daughters to cook, too? I’d love ot hear!

  1. I taught my daughter to cook and bake when she was just a girl, and now she is a fantastic cook, and makes pies from scratch as good or better than mine! We have a lot of fun sharing recipes with each other and cooking together when we are together (which isn’t often because she lives a couple states away). Your meal sounds delicious! We went outside the box this year and grilled steaks!
