Easter Dinner

How do you do Easter after a heart attack, without a ham but still having it feel like a celebration?

I tweaked the menu some, with more of a focus on how to make foods lower fat and lower sodium.

Salad - organic greens tossed with broccoli and carrots.

Fruit salad – strawberries, peaches, and pineapples tossed together.

Garlic beer bread – I didn’t have the time or energy to make yeast rolls, so this worked.

Deviled eggs – I hesitated on this one, but my family loves them, and I can eat one in moderation; I’ve avoided real eggs all week to save room for one.

Twice-baked potatoes – I used Yukon potatoes this year and cut the butter/margarine entirely. My son made these with fat substitutes. We’ll see how they taste.

Sauteed veggies – Zucchini sauteed with green and red peppers with onion.

Butterflied pork chops cooked with apples and cranberries – this is a new recipe and an experiment.

Low fat chocolate cake – this is an experiment too. I tried making a chocolate cake mix with a can of 7-up instead of the fats and oils. I’ve tried a strawberry cake with this and liked the results. So we’ll see if chocolate is edible.

 


Wow. It's Quiet Here...
