easter bella

We had ham, glazed carrots and bacon potato salad. The ham was good. It was a spiral cut from Super Target. The carrots and potatoes were dishes I whipped up last minute because we took a long afternoon nap. I’m not a huge fan of ham or cooked carrots. I’m not sure what inspired this meal plan, but it was good. Really good! The potato salad was inspired by Tana. She’s all about potato salad. You can’t knit with her on a Saturday afternoon without coming home and thinking, “I need to make some potato salad.”

Glazed Carrots
1 lb frozen carrot coins, microwaved until warm
1/4 c brown sugar
1 T butter
1/4 t vanilla

Melt the butter and brown sugar in a sauce pan. Add the carrots. Stir until glazed. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Note: This is a lot less butter and brown sugar than most recipes call for, so don’t expect a super duper glaze. It’s light with a hint of sweetness.

Bacon Potato Salad
2 slices of turkey bacon cooked and chopped
4 baking potatoes microwaved in jackets
3 T light mayo
2 T light olive oil
salt and pepper

When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel and chop into 1 inch cubes. Combine with other ingredients. Serve while warm. Yum!

What did you have for Easter dinner? Do you have any special traditions? Did you make everything from scratch or cheat like we did? Or do you celebrate in a restaurant and let someone else cook? If you don’t celebrate Easter, do you have any traditions for when the rest of town is closed for Bunny Day?

    Mmmm – potato salad! Try adding some green onion and coarse mustard – lots of flavor – no fat!
