Easter 07

Here are a few photos from Easter. I took a limited number of pictures because as service begins, it simply gets too busy to be photographing everything and managing the kitchen at the same time. Our hams were locally grown in Monroe county and cured at Schubert's in Milstadt IL. I bought five whole hams, each feeding fifty, and there were not any leftovers. We fed 220 guests and then the staff. We also roasted prime rib.

The restaurant's owner, Suzie Gallagher, had the restaurant beautifully decorated with eggs, Victorian Easter cut-outs, Easter grass, and baskets galore. It was so cold it didn't really seem like Easter, still everyone wore their pastel colors and the ladies exposed their shoulders in bright little sun dresses-they must have been freezing.

It was cold for Easter here in Plano also. Went to sunrise service, (outside) it was pretty cold. Your ham looked great!!! We had already planned on 'picnic' type food for Easter, fried chicken, fried catfish, cole slaw, potato salad, broccoli-rice salad. I smoked some chicken on Saturday for those wishing to avoid the fried foods. I brined the chicken Saturday night and fried everything in my turkey fryer, it turned out fabulous.

We went ot a REALLY good restaraunt last week here in town, Jasper's. Here's a link, I had the bone-in ribeye, Yo had the bourbon creamed corn, which I thought was especially noteworthy. come to Plano and we'll take you out!!!!!

P.S. Did the ribs make it to you????
