In case you are still looking for ideas for your Easter menu and Easter weekend, here are a couple of suggestions.

What a wild ride it has been so far this year (understatement). We don’t have a playbook to follow for how to navigate cherished holidays and days we would typically get together as family and friends. This year we cannot gather in groups, but one thing is for certain: We need to keep hold of something, we need a through-line to connect us from our recent past to what we hope is our future.

That is food. We all have different things in our pantry and refrigerator — our stocks look as different as we all do. So today I offer a selection of ideas to celebrate Easter. You aren’t having a big family feast, but you could try a dish or two, depending on what you have on hand.

Or how about this idea for your Easter menu? Stretch your own personal Easter celebration out for several days, and simply try a new recipe or idea each day. No pressure. This Easter, more than ever, make it yours.

Thanks for sharing these ideas with us! I am always looking for new dishes for Easter, so it’s not the same every year.

I go through phases with them. For awhile I’ll make them every weekend, and then I slack off for a year!
