The Easter Basket of special foods (described below) is arranged on Holy Saturday and taken to church, where a special blessing ceremony with prayers and sprinkling with Holy Water, is performed by the parish priest. The blessed food is served on Easter Sunday Brunch, once the fast is broken after the morning Easter Liturgy.
If you would like to put together a meal that is easy to prepare, but looks complicated, you will love this recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu.
You can use plain chicken breast, but I prefer a more flavored taste, so I marinate it for an hour, or overnight, in an Italian Salad Dressing. For simplicity and ease, I also use Campbell’s Cream of Chicken or Cream of Mushroom soup, for the sauce.
My spinach is thriving this year, so my first harvest produced enough tender fresh leaves to make two spinach omelettes for breakfast, and a salad for dinner.
If you are looking for a light lunch or dinner idea, Chef’s Salad does the trick.
Mini Quiches are perfect addition to your family’s breakfast menu, or a group brunch.
You can make them vegetarian, or add your favorite meat, such as bacon chips, cooked ground turkey, ham, Italian Sausage, etc.
