Rack of Lamb Dinner Menu

 

Easter is a a family holiday that deserves a scrumptious dinner menu.  Many people serve ham on Easter – instead why not serve a savory rack of lamb?  This menu includes a rack of lamb with a wonderful combination of dishes for your Easter Dinner.

Lamb is a symbol in many religions.  In Christianity, the bible references the lamb as the sacrificial animal and represents the son of God.  In the Jewish community lamb is the Passover sacrifice and lamb is also served for the Pope’s traditional Easter dinner.  Traditionally a whole lamb was roasted, but it is perfectly acceptable to serve parts instead.

Serve before dinner in the living room

Gourmet Crab Dip
This is my version of the popular Crab Dip that can be found all over the internet.  This crab dip can be served either cold or hot with either crackers of bread.

 

Main Course:

Grilled Rack of Lamb with Pinot Noir Marinade
A very easy and delicious grilled rack of lamb.  The Pinot Noir wine tenderizes the lamb.

 

Side Dishes:

Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Garlic mashed potatoes are so good!  Especially great with a ham dinner.

Never-Fail Popovers
Imagine – perfect popovers that never fail!  The addition of baking powder is the secret to this recipe.

Asparagus Parmigiano
This is my favorite way to prepare and serve fresh asparagus.  It is so simple and so good

or

Green Beans with Toasted Hazelnuts
Fresh green beans are another favorite vegetable that makes a great side dish.

Salade de Menthe (Mint Salad)
A very refreshing salad.

 

Dessert:

Old-Fashioned Baked Custard
To me, baked custard is definitely a “comfort food.” I can eat these custards anytime of the day. I especially like them for breakfast – its a quick breakfast that provides your protein and calcium.

Golden Rules of Food Safety – IF IN DOUBT, THROW IT OUT! If you have any question in your mind about the freshness or safety of eating a food product, throw it out. It is better to be safe than sorry!

Picnic Safety Tips – There is nothing more American than the picnic. Picnics can take on many forms, such as the community picnic, friends and neighbors, tailgate parties, or ball games. There is also one sure thing at every picnic-lots of good food.

The important point is to have safe and healthy food, not food that can cause food borne illness. Always prepare and store food properly.

Summer Safety Tips – Summer is the time for barbecues and picnics. The biggest party crasher at summer picnic and buffets is food borne bacteria. You can’t see them and you can’t taste them, but you sure can feel them if illness occurs hours or days later.
