I was walking through the Union Square Greenmarket in Manhattan on Monday, where farmers were aggressively recommending (via posters and verbally) that we order or hams today before they're all gone.
It made me want to put together a Bourbon-brown sugar glaze and get a ham in the oven. What are you making this year? Lamb? Ham?
One of my favorite Easter dishes is John Barricelli's Easter Pie. It's packed with eggs, cheese and 1 1/2 pounds of spinach -- he made it on the Martha Show, and I've never enjoyed a simultaneously rich and healthy dish. You can find it in Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook on p. 275-6.
What are you planning for Easter?

Ham and venison, zucchini casserole, deviled eggs, new potatoes, red pepper cornbread stuffing, gravy, greens, and I'm still trying to come up with a couple more vegetable choices.

A Polish member of our extended family usually brings Mazurek and Baba for Easter Sunday tea and she makes Beetroot and Horseradish relish for her Jewish mother-in-law's Passover meal. Here are a couple of Polish recipes.
