I shared our Easter dinner plans with you last week. Since then the girls had their own ideas and before I knew it our menu had changed up a bit and we were able to make our hard work evolve into a meal prep session as well. It couldn't have worked any better.
While the ham baked in the oven the girls peeled a dozen hard boiled eggs so my oldest daughter could make deviled eggs. They youngest sliced up mushrooms and diced up part of a leftover onion and sliced four leftover green onions.
I chopped up a bag of frozen cauliflower florets and used the green onions, some bacon bits, sour cream and sharp cheddar to make loaded cauliflower. I also cleaned up a bunch of asparagus, drizzled it with olive oil and sprinkled it with herbs and spices to roast in the oven.
The sliced mushrooms and onions were put in a pan with olive oil and sauteed. I added frozen green beans, chopped garlic and soy sauce to those and once this was cooked drizzled some toasted sesame oil over the top.
My youngest daughter fixed up a quick relish plate with olives and baby dills. I heated up a small can of pork & beans in a small dish in the microwave for my oldest daughter. She loves those.
It was pretty much all Keto, except for my daughter's pork & beans, and very delicious. We have plenty of leftovers to carry us through the entire week and beyond with that big ham. Loads of yummy side dishes and we didn't miss the mac & cheese or dinner rolls that we usually have on Easter at all.
How was your Easter meal? Are you still eating up leftovers too?
