- ham from freezer
- canned sweet potatoes
- canned green beans and cream of mushroom soup for a casserole
- rhubarb from the garden for a pie
- Easter candy
That covers most of the basics for easter dinner. I will be hoping for a good price on asparagus and potatoes.
Some of this menu plan an be made ahead and frozen; and some can be made a day or two before, and heated at the last minute. The sweet potato casserole actually freezes quite well, as do the baked pies. Green bean casserole can be assembled a day or two ahead. That leaves the ham and anything extra for Easter Sunday.
For Easter breakfast, I think I will keep it simple, some canned pineapple juice from the freezer, and an overnight crockpot casserole, using potatoes, eggs and turkey bacon (freezer, again).
