    3/4 pound of apples (the sweeter the better)
    2 1/2 cups mayonaise
    3/4 pound of knob celery
    1 cup of cream
    half a lemon

    grate the celery and apples on a large rasp or grater. Mince the innards of your half lemon. mix up the apples, celery, lemon, and cream. (you can salt this if you want, too), chill and mix in the mayo just before serving it.

    I don't know what it's called (probably just apple celery salad), but I guess it's been in the family for a while and is onne of our "traditional" easter dishes.

    Easter Egg Dyeing recipe

    Need: 1 dozen eggs
    White vinegar
    Paas dyeing kit
    Water
    Large Pot
    Stove

    Place cool water in large pot on stove. Add dozen eggs. Bring water and eggs to a boil. While waiting for water to burn, go back to the store and buy the hollow plasic eggs, they keep better anyway when you've forgotten where you've hidden the eggs. They also wont smell up the place.

    My family's traditional holiday (any holiday) dinner:
    • BBQ - Usually mutton instead of pork for Easter; secret family recipe.
    • Pinto beans - standard big-pot BBQ style recipe
    • German-style potato salad - standard recipe
    • Cooked cheese with homemade bread - some weird concoction of flour, milk, cheese and just the right temperature. I haven't mastered this one yet.
    • Green Beans (from the garden or a can - never frozen) cooked with a bit of bacon
    • Some other random vegetables - whatever is ripe in the garden at the time.
    • Pea pie - made from unripened Texas mustang grapes, not actual peas
    • Some other random deserts
    • Water, Sweet Tea and bring-your-own-alcohol
      • Smirnoff & Diet Coke (me)
      • Shiner Bock beer (dad & brother)
      • Wild Turkey & Dr. Pepper (uncle)
      • Bud Lite (uncle)
      • Wine Coolers (both aunts)
      • Bacardi & Coke or Smirnoff Twisted (sisters)
    • German polka & 40's & 50's country dance-hall music (just as important as the food)

    Most every family has its own recipe, and the comparing of different potato salads that one has sampled is a more hotly contested subject of debate than you perhaps realize. :rolleyes:

    One big ass ham. Of which I will personally eat the entire outer layer of fat,
    or crackling as it's known. And then I'll go blind for a few hours.

    In this part of Texas, if it's old and German, you can bet my great great grandparents had something to do with it. All the BBQ caterers in the area use the same recipe, or buy that yellow "mustard" gloop from Sysco. I doubt it's a coincidence.

    Hoffbrauhaus's (in Vegas) potato salad tastes exactly like Grandma's - so much so that I got homesick.

    Uh... no. New Braunfels is an hour or three away.

    It's just a teenie tiny little community out in the middle of flat pasture land where just about everyone is a cousin to some degree. Think "Lake Woebegone" minus anything resembling winter, and with more cows and less humor.

    Back to the topic of this thread: I'm looking for the pea pie recipe now. It's "unique"...

    Shell dyed Easter eggs. Cut in half. Scoop out yolk. Mash yoke with mayonaise, dry mustard, and sweet pickle relish. Return to halved egg. If you really want to, garnish with paprika.

    Froehliche Ostern
