    If you celebrate Easter what do you eat? I'm hosting for the first time this year (27, gulp) and am wondering what other people generally serve.

    So far I have a babka, a butterflied leg of lamb that we will do on the grill, a brown sugar ham, a pineapple stuffing/cassarole, roasted potatoes, asparagus, a green salad, homemade rolls and I haven't decided if/what else I need.

    Dessert will be a coconut cream pie that my Mom is making and a fiadone (which is like Italian cheesecake).

    What do you eat? Recipies? Also, do you dress up/dress your kids up for that day? I bought my boys their first ties that match their sisters dress (thanks Etsy) and am excited to dress them up on that day, even though we don't go to church What are your traditions?

    Ham, and of course the egg hunt. Hot cross buns are a delish Easter treat (except I leave out the candied fruit and just use raisins). We don't dress the kids up. If we had people coming or went to church then yeah I'd dress them up, but we aren't doing either so not much point really.

    Ham and some sort of sweet easter bread. It's cauliflower season so lots of that and butternut squash. Wish it was that butterflied lamb though, that sounds fab.

    We generally dress the kids up but my son has grown two inches in two months so he's outgrown his old duds and no time to get him anything before Easter from overseas. I think he'll wear his school uniform to the baptism we're going to. First time in Catholic church since I came out as an atheist, I'm feeling a little trepidation.

    I don't mean to poke fun, but that sounds so funny - 'cauliflower season'. Probably because cauliflower always seems to be in season in my grocery store. But I guess when I say "corn's in season" people might find that funny too.

    The only thing we do special over Easter is hot cross buns and fish and chips for tea on Good Friday. Though lamb is promoted heavily here for easter as well, just not as much as seafood.

    Ham is the only real must.

    Well.....we are true southerners. We have smoked BBQ ribs, potato salad, squash, sliced tomatoes, green beans, deviled eggs, and garlic bread. Every year. And for dessert we usually have some sort of cheesecake. Mmmmmm!!!!

    And as for how we dress.....well, I always buy the girls new Easter dresses to wear to church. But once we get to my in-laws house they usually want to change into something more comfortable - so shorts and a tanktop it is!

    We dress up as do the kiddos. My inlaws do not and it is their turn for dinner this year. Both sides usually have ham and chicken (for me..I hate ham). We color eggs and eat them but other than that nothing specific. My family has "egg fights" with the eggs where we hit one egg over the other until there is a winner.
