Easter Meals

Food for Thought: He is not here; He is risen.Luke 24:8

Tips: Decorate with Easter table ware and rabbits. Collect old Easter baskets and rabbits and plan to use with leftover cookies for shut-in and sick friends or family.


Stuffed Eggs

6 hard cooked eggs
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 t. pepper
1/2 t. salt

Boil eggs that are at room temperature for approximately 20 minutes. Place in cold water immediately to prevent green coating or oxidation around the yoke. When cold, peel. Cut each egg length-wise and scoop out yoke. Mash the yokes and mix with mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Refill egg whites with a piping decorator or teaspoon. Sprinkle paprika on top of each half.

Fresh Mustard Greens

If you have fresh greens in your garden, use them. Use approximately 4 lbs. fresh greens. Wash and cover with water. Add 2 cubes of beef bullion. Cook at least 1 hour. Place in a crock pot and keep warm until time to serve. Serve with fresh garden onions, if available.

Chicken Salad

4 boneless chicken breasts
1 hard cooked egg
1 c. mayonnaise
1 t. garlic salt
1/4 t. pepper
1/2 t. salt
lettuce leaves
1/4 c. chopped red pepper or pimento
1 cup of grapes, halved

Cook chicken breast covered in water until done, approximately 1 hour. Chop chicken. Chop boiled egg. Mix together. Add mayonnaise, garlic salt, season to taste with salt and pepper. Mix in red pepper and grapes. Serve on a bed of lettuce. Sprinkle paprika on top, if desire.

Easter Delights
(Peanut Butter and Cracker Cookies)

1 c. sugar
1 c. white corn syrup
1/2 c. peanut butter
4 cup cracker bits

Boil sugar and corn syrup until sugar dissolves, approximately 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add peanut butter and cracker bits. I used cheese-its bits. Stir all of this well and drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax or parchment paper.

From Nutritionist: This meal is a different choice for Easter celebration, yet easy to serve because it can be made ahead of time. Cook greens and place in a slow cooker on warm. Chicken Salad and stuffed eggs may be made ahead of time and placed in the refrigerator. The cookies take about 30 minutes total. Store in air tight containers for future use. For any left-overs store in air-tight containers and place in Easter baskets or boxes with pastel bows. Caution: If taking left-over chicken salad or eggs to someone, keep in a cooler until you take it out at their residence. May add a rabbit to complete the Easter theme. Deliver to shut-ins or the sick. The protein is found in the chicken and eggs. Vitamins and minerals are in the greens, lettuce and grapes. Arrange rolls in the shape of the cross and serve warm. Serve with plenty of ice tea. Diabetics will desre to substitute the cookie for fruit. The cook should save some grapes for them. Happy Easter everyone!
