It's a tradition in our house to hold Easter dinner on Saturday night; I started that when the big kids started going off to college, and needed Sunday to travel back to school. Now that most everyone is an adult, it still works, giving them time to visit spouses' families on Easter, or just travel home early and relax before Monday takes over their worlds once again.
This year, I cooked a standing rib roast on Good Friday. It wasn't planned that way, it's just that I had an extra left over from Christmas. Don't try to puzzle out how I could just happen to have an extra 18 pound chunk of meat and bone in the freezer; it's one of life's great mysteries. Suffice to say that it was very much enjoyed.
Easter Dinner (on Saturday) was the traditional leg of lamb (actually, two legs of lamb, totaling 14 pounds), carved by Ryan, along with rolls and other lovely sides.
Of course, Tank and Natasha each had a beef rib bone on Saturday afternoon, and another on Sunday. Then Tank took home the remaining 4 rib bones, and Natasha took home the 2 lamb bones. Fair is fair.
I'd intended to post these pictures yesterday, but my wireless router died Sunday night, and it took me all of Monday to get it diagnosed and a new one ordered. Hooray for Amazon and their overnight delivery! Everything works again!
I hope you're all having a nice Tuesday; see you tomorrow for Cookbook Wednesday.
