Easter holiday is in 1 week and most of us start cooking this week. We have all traditions to keep, recipes from our grandmothers to prepare and menu to make. Time will pass so fast next week so make a list this weekend with all the dishes you think about making for Easter. It will help you next week a lot. Add for every meal on the list, the time to prepare and the ingredients, so you will know when to make it.
My list for Easter is almost the same each year. Here goes some traditional food we will definitely serve on Easter.
Traditional red eggs (and colored)
Borsch or sour meatball soup
Cozonac – sweet bread with poppy seeds or walnuts
Pasca – Cheese or chocolate cake
I will also add to the menu new recipes and not so traditional. I will make smaller portions than usually. Our families make too much food on Easter and Christmas. Visiting friends, you will get the same menu over and over again. It is nice to have something fresh and new to serve your guests beside your traditional recipes.
I start asking my family to make less food every day. We need to be aware of wasted food, especially on holidays.
Try Half Hasselback potatoes for your potatoes.
For dessert you can try something different with
Pasca you can replace it with Raw vegan cheesecake with clementine. It will be a light dessert after all the heavy menu.
