repost from Holiday board re:easter menus


I just started putting it together today once I realized it's a month away and I have a lot going on the week before, not a lot of time to prep the day before, most I can make during the week which is nice.

So here's what I came up with so far. I'm hosting 15-20 people (not sure, one family may be out of town).


veggies/cheese/olives platter with crackers


jumbo shrimps/sauce

Dinner (keep in mind we are Lebanese so some dishes are a given for us)

Honey baked ham

chicken/rice/chickpeas/slivered almonds/onion dish


spinach pies

eggplant/zucchini/onion bake

yogurt/cucumber/mint salad

more hummus and pita bread (we typically do not do dinner rolls)

**I was going to do lamb instead of ham but honestly, I just don't want to add that to my oven/stovetop regime lol. I'd rather buy a nice ham at the honey baked ham store the day before. Is this enough food?

Dessert (I don't bake so this is where I call upon others to bring!)

I'll buy some assorted arabic sweets

my sister in law will bring a carrot cake

I will provide fruit

**is this enough?

  • I think it sounds like the perfect amount. 

    The chicken/rice thing sounds really good.  Do you have a recipe?

  • Hi!  Welcome ~Gorgeous menu - everything looks beautiful.  The Honey Baked Ham should be easy too.  Please share recipes... 

    Thank you~


  • Glad to hear it all sounds good.  I do have recipes, besides the chicken and rice anything else?  I need to find it though, it's been a while since I've made the chicken one.  The others are done mostly by my mind and family recipes but I can find them somewhere I'm sure.

  • Hi again!  These recipes would be of interest to me - however if you're really busy can understand not having time to type them all out.

    Thank you~

  • I will type them to you but it's after midnight and I just saw this post!  So I will follow up with them soon.  I love to share recipes!
