Resurrection Celebration Meal

This Sunday we will celebrate Resurrection Day with worship which will culminate as we partake of the Lord's Supper. What a glorious morning it promises to be! When we arrive back home we will enjoy a festive meal gathered around the table. Our menu for our celebration is as follows:

Resurrection Sunday Menu

Baked Ham
Cheesy Potato Casserole
Buttered Carrots
Pear Salad
Relish Tray
Iced Tea
Lemon Fluff

Here are a few of the recipes that I will be using:

Cheesy Potato Casserole

1 bag ORE-IDA® Country Style HASH BROWNS [26 oz]
1 can Cream of Potato Soup
1 can Cream of Onion Soup
2 cups Sour Cream
1½ tsp Salt
¼ tsp Pepper
2 cups Cheddar Cheese [grated]

¼ cup Butter or margarine [melted]
2 cup Corn Flakes [crushed]

Mix soups, sour cream, salt, pepper, and cheese in a large mixing bowl.

Add grated potatoes and stir to combine.

Place in a greased 13" by 9" pan.

Top with butter and Corn flakes mixed together.

Bake at 350 deg. for 45 minutes until bubbly around the edges.

Pear Salad

Canned pear halves (chilled)
8 oz. Cream Cheese
Maraschino Cherries

Soften cream cheese. Whip with mixer. Little by little, add juice from the pears, mixing all the while. Add enough juice to make the consistency of a very thick gravy. Mix until smooth. Place two pear halves into individual serving bowls, pour cream cheese sauce over halves,and top with a cherry.

Lemon Fluff

1 c. flour
1 stick margarine
1/2 c. grated nuts

Combine and press into 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Cool.

1 - 8 oz. pkg cream cheese
1 c. Cool Whip
1 c. powdered sugar
2 small pkg. instant lemon pudding
3 c. milk

Mix cream cheese, Cool Whip, and powdered sugar.
Spread over cooled crust. Mix pudding with milk. Pour over cream cheese mixture. Top with remaining Cool Whip. Chill.

Hi~Greetings for Yahweh's Retreat on Hatteras Island!

I think even my boys (who don't care much for hash browns) would like that recipe! They love cheese.

I found your blog on a "bunny trail" (linking) and am looking forward to returning.

I also wanted to invite you to stop by my blog:

Betty, If you do try it, I think that you will love it. It is a recipe that is requested often in our home. Happy Easter to you, too.

Vanessa, Welcome! So very interesting that I found your blog last night on a bunny trail as well. I think perhaps from Lula's Hardt? In any case, I'm glad that you found me, and I'll look forward to your return!

Thanks for your comments Tracy. Yes I see you have comment moderation and after your experience I can see why.
Did not understand your "never had to not ocmment" ???
All the rest does make sense yes. In fact came over to visit you and ended up visiting 'beach girl'. It is fatal when I start doing this late at night.

Wish I had been at lunch with you yesterday.

How do you reply to comments on your own blog. I had only thought one could have comments coming into but not going out also?

Your menu looks delicious! What time is supper?

We'll be 'just us three' this Easter which is the norm since we don't have family nearby. We plan to have a simple feast and gathering of hearts..besides church we'll sup, enjoy a bikeride through the miles of bike paths in our town, read the word together, etc.

Blessings to you this precious Easter...

Thanks for the pear salad idea! I've been wanting to make a light and easy dessert for a while, and this looks just right.

Tracy said...

Lunch with you would have been wonderful, I am sure! And tea , too!

Yummy! Sounds delicious, I am drooling! I love anything that has cheese and potato in the same name. Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!

It looks like you had a delicious Easter meal.

We had cheesy hash browns and ham for our Easter meal.

I'm going to copy your recipes again. Thanks for sharing.
