Easter 2014 Menu and a Visit from the Easter Beagle

Easter is almost here, which means it's time for me to dust off my copy of It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown so I can watch it with my son. After that we pack our suitcases and get ready for the long road trip back home to visit with friends and family. Unfortunately this year we've had a last minute change of plans, we'll still curl up on the couch and watch our traditional holiday movie, but we won't be making the trip home. This is only the second time I've found myself in charge of Easter, so I don't have a pre-planned menu to fall back on. We'll be having ham garnished with pineapple and maraschino cherries as well as some lighter side dishes full of fresh veggies. If you're still looking for something light and simple to help round out your holiday meal, make sure you check out the side dishes below and don't forget about our fabulous Lemon Meringue Pie for dessert.
