Ham, Green Salad, Deviled Eggs, Green Beans with Olive Oil. Snacks such as olives, cheeses, celery with cream cheese, chopped brocolli and cauliflower. For dessert, carb-free jello with whipped topping. This is what I will be having. Something for everyone.( Forgot the ranch dip.)

I'm thinking we'll stay home this year for Easter. So we've got a ham in the freezer I should take out and defrost. Maybe some green beans. And a lettuce salad for us. Potatoes for the girls. I'll have to check the carb count on some other stuff but so far I think that's what I'm going to plan. Going to try and stay away from the pistacchio salad (I believe it's also called watergate salad and other names as well. lol)

How do you make the mock cauliflower mashed potatoes? I haven't tried them . Are they tasty? I do eat cauliflower, so would probably like this. Thanks.
