Default Easter Dinner Dishes

I'm trying to decide what to fix for Easter dinner. I will have ham, but it has been so cold and rainy here and there is nothing fresh in the garden. My asparagus is not even up yet. I want something cheerful and Springy on the table. What are some family favorites that make it to your Easter dinner table? There will be only 4 or 5 of us after we have attended sunrise services, breakfast at church, and then our regular Sunday services.

Having ham also. Adding a Caesar salad, sweet potatoes, baked beans, and steamed snow pea pods and cauliflower. We'll have angel food cake with berry sauce for dessert. Only be 3 of us this year! DS and family/friends (usually 6 or 7) are heading out of town.

Tiny new potatoes say spring to me but you can usually get them in the supermarket now. I year I did the bunny cake for dessert, it turned out cute .You do a round cake, cut it in half and ice it with cool whip and use jelly beans for the features. I used a styrofoam plate for the ears and whiskers.image.jpeg

My kids always request Broccoli and Cauliflower salad. It goes well with ham. Hot dinner rolls, spuds, ham gravy.

Tartan, I made that cake for many years. ;-) Easter is the only time I enjoy Jello "fluff" salad.

We are having ham, corn, lima beans, scalloped potatoes, rolls, deviled eggs, fruit salad and sweet potato souffle. http://www.geniuskitchen.com/recipe/...souffle-149328. We love this. The only change I make is to put 1/2 cup brown sugar in the casserole instead of 1 cup of regular sugar. I will have 30 people this year. This potato dish is also delicious. https://www.cinnamonspiceandeverythi...H26XfQ2UZXT.32. I just put the whole thing in a casserole dish and bake it that way.

I know that this is such a mid-west 1950 suggestions but how about a spring like jello. In a ring mold full of fruit like pineapple, mandarin oranges or pears all arranged in a pattern. It is a light dish and those gem tones of clear jello are spring like.
