Easter Menu: Avocado & Pinto Bean Enchiladas + Apple Cherry Crisp

Have you planned your Easter menu yet?  If not, don't fret.  You see, this mama just realized Easter was approaching this weekend.

Yep, I learned when our middle daughter said earlier this week: "Sarah told me that the Easter Bunny comes in 6 days".
I replied: "oh. yes. that's right."...

But my mind was saying: "whaaat, eek!"

After my brief moment of panic, I got a few ideas together for our Easter weekend.  And though I haven't entirely planned my own menu, I thought I'd offer up some lesa-traditional recipes for your own Easter dinner (and possibly my own)!

Why not try my "Avocado & Pinto Bean Enchildas" from eat, drink & be vegan, as a main dish:

For sides, you could make a simple batch of brown rice or roasted potatoes (or sweet potatoes), along with a salad dressed with "Cumin-Cinnamon Vinaigrette" (also from ed&bv).

For dessert, something easy and light, such as my "Apple-Cherry Crisp" from The Everyday Vegan:

I recently made this crisp with an "Apple-Mango-Pear" adaptation, and it was wonderful:

Pair the crisp with a non-dairy vanilla ice cream, and you have a dessert fit to please your crew!

I have posted the recipes for the enchiladas and crisp for you to enjoy this Easter - or anytime.

So, tell me, have you planned your Easter dinner yet?

(p.s. Update on posting the list of edits for LTEV, I will do so and update it in my earlier post.  Check back in a day or two for the link.  Thanks.)

UPDATE! Let Them Eat Vegan - Release Date!

Update: Errata now published.

Hello my friends, thank you for hanging in with me for news on the revised printing of Let Them Eat Vegan.

At last, I can tell you that the official release date is May 1st!  Hurrah!

Any one that currently has a copy of LTEV, if you would like to exchange it for the new printing, you will have that option.  You can return it to the place of purchase, as accounts have been made aware and should honor return/replacement requests.

I will be back to announce a new "Buy-On" promotion program and date - if you can just hold on a little longer.

Thank you, and I truly hope to make the wait well worth it.
