Easter, what are you doing?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created April 24, 2011 at 2:03 PM

What is everyone making for easter dinner? Are you cooking your own, or going to make the best of someone else's food? Are you cheating, or staying strictly paleo?

Bonus Question: Are you celebrating in a paleo way? My family is going for a long walk, like we do every year.

Come on people. If you are going to cheat, cheat with some good quality stuff, not Boston Market or Reese's!

I had my Reese's peanut butter bunny last night, because I figured I'd get all my "bad" eating in all at once. Sadly, it wasn't as good as I remembered.

I ust cheated and had some Boston Market mac n cheese...and about 15 minutes later I'm phlegmy, getting a headache and I feel awful! And it feels like it burned my tongue! Not cuz it was hot, but the taste was so salty/intense! Maybe it's mental.

where there is an argument? I absolutely understand that it was well meant and would never suggest mean spirit. I do not feel offended. But I am quite sensitive to inclusive/exclusive language. Being a minority often makes you more sensitive. And I pay attention to the language also when it is not about me or it's not me who is excluded. Can't see how my argument could be seen as an argument? Every moment might be a chance to learn sensitivity to diversity.

That's what Easter is to me actually. Some of my family goes to church, but there are several of us who aren't religious.

I didn't mean to assume that, or seem as if I was. I used general pronouns like everyone and you, and thought that it would be understood that I was referring to the Christians who this would apply to. I'm sorry if I offended you or anyone else.

We celebrate Easter as more of a celebration of spring traditions rather than a religious holiday. I'm not affiliated with any religion. We are having the last ham in the freezer from our pastured pork stash, some carrots and potatoes, something green, and the inevitable Easter basket goodies. It is one day out of 365 so guilt about sugar consumption is not really a problem. I'll try not to overconsume though - so hard to break the sugar habit!

I'm making a big ol' Australian leg of lamb, maybe some baconnaise deviled eggs. My gym's closed today, so I'm going to do some bodyweight exercises in the neighborhood park.

being a secular humanist and mysticism really gets my goat, I just came back from getting my 200 signatures against hydraulic fracturing since "cheney is still alive and kicking - and he wants YOU dead before he kicks the bucket" (a quote by me) = can't stand the SOB ! that's what I did for Earth Day (my association with the other "E" holiday! :)

I am getting the turkey ready as we speak - making an organic, local farm raised turkey (I actually visited our turkey a week ago). We are having oyster stuffing, crab casserole, bok choy braised in bacon fat, and I have the Food Lover's Primal Palate's carrot cake in the oven right now it smells absolutely delightful).

We were going to be outside in our yard gardening while the turkey was in the oven - but it decided to rain, so no gardening for us today - maybe some spring cleaning before our family arrives.

We're not practicing christians, but we do love an excuse to get together as a large family around that table and enjoy some great food and some laughs! So Happy Easter and Happy Family Celebrations!

Grassfed t-bones on the grill with something green and butternut squash. I told my mom to bring whatever dessert she and her boyfriend want to eat. If I'm feeling it, I'll have some but not overly focused on it. This is a big change from past years where I would be craving dessert. Now, I am indifferent towards it. I wish they would hurry and get here. Those steaks look darned good and my belly is growling.

I'll still be strictly gluten-free (celiac), but I'll otherwise be cheating because I know there will be 2 GF deserts that were specially made with care. I'll feel lousy later from the sugar but nothing close to how lousy I'd feel if I ate gluten! Anyway, if it weren't for the deserts, everything would be very healthy - our host sprang for a very expensive beef roast (can't remember what cut) and there will be some simple, barely-adulterated veggies. I made fresh mozzarella last night to bring over, garnished with dried tomatoes soaking in whey. These get-togethers with indulgent foods aren't very often, so I don't beat myself up over them and just let myself enjoy. It's easy to get back to basics when it's all I have in the house!

This is the first Easter I won't be eating hot cross buns. This is a little difficult. Otherwise there are so many eAster feast options that I will be able to have, that I don't believe I will feel too left out of the feast. My children will be eating far less chocolate than in previous years, but will still have some good quality stuff. The Easter bunny has gone paleo ;)

I made a version of my grandma's Easter cheese with coconut milk instead of milk. Here's a basic recipe:

For those who never had Easter cheese, it tastes awesome sliced and fried with bacon or ham.

I'm sure I'll cheat with something.

Many extra http://www.tiffanyukonlinejewelry.net/tuk7-tiffany-rings.html individuals would suit on customized clothing makers if they could purchase them http://www.tiffanyukonlinejewelry.net/tuk7-tiffany-pendants.html at wholesale prices, merely since the expenses at customized boutiques are away from achieve to many people. Wholesale http://www.tiffanyukonlinejewelry.net/tuk7-tiffany-sets.html Abercrombie and Fitch clothing, for example, could possibly be the kind of clothing many youthful http://www.tiffanyukonlinejewelry.net/tuk7-tiffany-accessories-gifts-for-him.html adults would adore to find. They adore the brand, the look, along using the http://www.tiffanyukonlinejewelry.net/tuk7-tiffany-bangles.html fit, but occasionally the expenses are away from reach.

"What is everyone making for easter dinner"

How about not assuming we are all practicing Christians here?
