This year Greek Orthodox Easter falls on the same day as Easter, which is always nice. I'm looking forward to April 24th this year, for all obvious religious reasons but the preparation and cooking really rings my bells!
I already purchased the leg of lamb, which I plan to roast with all those wonderful Greek spices on the grill rotisserie. I'll put a drip pan under the lamb so I can capture the juices which will be used for the oven browned potatoes. Add a big Greek salad/dressing,
some homemade pita bread/tsaziki sauce, a homemade Easter Bread Braid and some scrumptous Greek desserts and I'll be all set. I'll probably make spanakopita as well-everyone always wants that. This year our neighbors are joining us for this celebration meal
as our grown kids and grands live on the east coast; a little too far for travel. If I knew more people in our neighborhood I would have dug a hole in the back yard, made a nice grill pit and roasted the whole lamb like my grandparents/parents did when I
was young. I always looked forward to that day and still do!
What are your plans for Easter dinner this year?
