i just eat as i do any other day? And should this not be re-titled "Whats for Easter Dinner Pagan's?" ?

Hypocracy is rife

One of our family favorites was this simple but delicious recipe for Hot Curried Fruit. It is a wonderful accompaniment to your glazed ham. You can use most any kind of canned fruit, but do be aware of mixing pleasing colors and textures, too. This can be put together the night before, covered and refrigerated and heated the next day either in a crockpot for several hours on low or in the oven for about 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees.

Hot Curried Fruit

1 large can pineapple chunks (drain and reserve juice) 1 regular can pears, halved (drain and reserve juice) 1 regular can peaches, halved (or can substitute apricots) (drain and reserve juice) 1/2 c. maraschino cherries 1/3 c. butter, melted 1/2 c. brown sugar 1 1/2 tsp. curry powder 1 tbsp. lemon juice

Place drained fruit in a sprayed 9x13 pan (or equivalent) with cut sides of the fruit facing down. Drop maraschino cherries on top in a pretty pattern. Mix half of the reserved fruit juices, melted butter, brown sugar, curry powder, and lemon juice in a saucepan and heat until brown sugar is melted, stirring carefully. Pour butter/sugar mixture on top of fruit. Bake for 35-45 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve warm or cooled. This is wonderful with ham.MySpace Layouts...

Not Religious

But i'll be making my own yummy japanese style chicken cutlet curry

Recipe for those interested, not to honk my own horn but its amazing:



For the chicken:

200g chicken
100g flour (seasoned with salt and pepper)
1 egg, beaten
200g breadcrumbs
100 ml vegetable oil

For the sauce:

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 onion, peeled & chopped
5 garlic cloves, peeled
1 carrot, peeled & chopped
2 tablespoons plain flour
1 tablespoon curry powder
600ml chicken stock
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons honey
½ teaspoon garam masala


1. Heat the oil in a pan. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 2 minutes, then add the carrot and cook slowly for 10 minutes, with the lid on, stirring occasionally.

2. Stir in the flour and curry powder and cook for one minute. Add the chicken stock, then the soy sauce and the honey. Bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, and simmer for 20 minutes.

3. Add the garam masala and pass through a sieve to make a smooth sauce.

For the chicken:

1. Lay the (seasoned) flour, egg and breadcrumbs on to separate plates. Coat the chicken with the flour, the egg and the breadcrumbs.

2. Heat the oil in a frying pan, then fry the chicken for 5 minutes on each side.

3. Remove from the pan and drain on kitchen paper.

Serve on rice with the sauce on top.

I just celebrate the family and easter bunny thing. Nothing religious.
We're doing something different this year and are going to a brunch.
Getting ready to leave soon.
I haven't been to a brunch since I was about 8.

So we will be eating everything you could think of most likely.

my wife did some sort of glaze with spicy mustard and pineapple juice (rubbed on) and topped with a couple pineapple rings (canned pineapple). Then cooked it on the grill wrapped in tin foil for 2 hours at 375. Braising the juices over it.

Not a thick glaze - i guess just enough to seep down into the juice as it cooks.

Still trying to figure out what the heck to do with a ham without Vernor's....

Pineapple, brown sugar and cloves is good... but no Vernor's. :?
