Many of you who are the organized, early planners probably have your Easter feast all figured out already, down to napkin colors, wine selection and which unlucky person has to sit next to crazy Uncle Teddy.
Then there are some of us who frantically throw things together at the last minute, hopping around the kitchen with pots going cling! clang! clunk! Slinging stuff in the oven, slinging it back out of the oven and having the kitchen look like a war zone.
Yes, that’s normally me.
But not this year. And it’s only because I’ll be celebrating Easter on the airplane from California to Florida. It was the cheapest airfare available and with a family of 4, I opted for lugging ham sandwiches on the plane vs. paying an extra $800 in fares.
So, my contribution to Easter this year will be to help you, my dear friends, with side dish ideas. It’s only Thursday, which means you have another 2 days left of planning!
Alright, so are some fabulous Easter side dish ideas that I’ve chosen for you …
