Spring/Easter Dinner Planning

I love to plan. I make lists, Pinterest boards, save photos and links, this is a full on part of my OCD and I’m okay with it (mostly). One of my most favourite things to plan is holiday meals. I usually start planning out the menu a few weeks in advance and I just do it in my notes app on my iPhone. I plan the courses, as well as make a grocery list of all the things I need for the recipes and we’re ready to go come the holidays. This year I really wanted to do a Spring Equinox dinner but pregnancy ended up getting in the way, I’m having a real hard time eating a lot of the time and sometimes things are too crazy when you want to do something. So this year I’m just combining the two for Easter and doing a Spring/Easter celebration meal! This year Easter is April 16th and I’m sharing my ideas below.

Artichoke Tartlets from A Kitchen in France by Mimi Thorisson

Main Dish
Black Pig Pork Chops from French Country Cooking by Mimi Thorisson

Side Dishes
Garlic Mashed Potatoes from A Kitchen in France Mimi Thorisson

I’m not entirely decided on this yet. I’m thinking either Frozen Citrus Mousse or Strawberry Shortcake Sundaes, both from Dessert of the Day by Williams-Sonoma
