Recipes for an Easter Feast
Over the years, I have fallen into a tradition of preparing a rather predictable, and somewhat formal, Easter brunch. While brunch is a lovely way to mark this special day, I’ve decided to shake it up a bit this year. Why not hold off and offer a meal to cap off the holiday in casual style? No Easter attire required.

We can argue over what exactly “supper” means. Most sources agree that it is a light evening meal. Some insist that it follows a midday dinner. Some suggest that we sing for it. I’m blending some new and old ideas to make a light evening meal that is substantial enough to be the main meal. It’s going to be served after the hubbub of the holiday wanes, and every chocolate egg has been found. I won’t take out my china and silver for it. I will serve it family style at the kitchen table. Singing for it will be optional.

The meal suggested is meant to honor seasonal favorites while keeping things fairly simple. (And you can also use these recipes as inspiration for other spring events often centered around food, including Mother’s Day and graduation.)
