Christian or not, Easter marks a new beginning with spring each year. That is also reason to celebrate. And then there is just the plain, old fun of decorating eggs, dressing up in pretty pastels, watching excited kids do an egg hunt, arranging beautiful baskets, & sharing a nice meal. Easter is just pretty. I am also going to be working on some creative candy & Easter basket fillers, which I hope to share on my Facebook page. As with my Thanksgiving and Christmas menus, I hope this holiday menu will be inspiring to you too:
Sardines are fantastic for you. Give it a google. To make the olives AIP, skip the crushed red pepper.
I've never made lamb chops before, so wish me luck with that one. To make the sweet potato puffs AIP, skip the egg whites. I think I will be skipping the booze in the prosciutto and melon salad, but I'm not sure how I'll replace the flavor. Any thoughts?
The cupcakes are a Paleo treat for my husband & daughter (alas, they do not meet AIP standards). My plan is to do some sort of cute Easter decorating of the cupcakes. I'll be substituting honey for the sugar in the vanilla roasted pear recipe.
