Easier Easter Meal Ideas

Dreading cooking a big Easter dinner? Start a new tradition. Order your meal from your favorite restaurant, do a brunch or a pot luck. Enjoy family and friends and the special time it's meant to be without the stress. Don't spend hours in the kitchen or grocery store.  If you opt for the brunch idea, do half dinner items and mix in some breakfast foods. If the thought of people helping out with the meal made you all tingly inside, assign items to those you know can cook...well :-)  Most people won't mind bringing an item. Ask those guests to come at least 30 minutes prior to the rest of the guest so you can warm up any dishes and/or place them accordingly.
