    This is my first easter with IC as well. My Ic started on April 20 of last year. THis year for easter I will make beef stew using tenderloin steak in a slow cooker and tapioca pudding for desert. OOWW my mom is making chili beans and my grandma is making her famous potatoe salad and of course cake for desert. I can't have flour or wheat so no cake and cookies and candy for me.

    sodium nitrate????

    I just checked the ham my husband brought home from work. It says cured with water and less than 2%: salt, sodium phosphate, a few other things, and sodium nitrate is listed last. I'm wondering if this small amount is enough to create a flare. Any thoughts?????

    Some grocery stores now do carry nitrate/nitrite and preservative-free spiral sliced hams. If you can tolerate them, they certainly are another option.

    Another good desert which is IC friendly is blueberry cheesecake..
    And if you can tolerate cheese we always have baked mac and cheese.. I do fine with it but just in case I always take my prelief with me...

    For Easter my mom is serving Lamb! I have never had it before, but I'm not sure if it is safe for me. I am highly sensative to the diet (I just look at a soda and cringe ) so I didn't know if Lamb would cause me to Flare. Any thoughts on the matter would be great!! Although, I might just bring a piece of chicken breast and not risk it, I sure do love chicken!

    Its just us at home, but I always go all out for it, this way we have left overs for the week. I'm going to make a roast, mash potatos, and some veggies. Probably a dessert, what kind, haven't gotten that far yet, will decide when I go to the store tonight.

    For family gatherings like Thanksgiving or Xmas, we've been doing roast chicken with rosemary. (My mom & I both have IC) For sides, mashed potatoes, steamed green beans, sweet potatoes with brown sugar & butter, rolls. For dessert, I've made zucchini/carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, a white cake with coconut vanilla frosting, or blueberry pound cake. I just posted a recipe for coconut cream pie too, that's a great dessert.

    For easter, my family always has a very big potluck. Basically, I load up on the sides that I can eat and just forgo the ham. If you have a big family like mine, you could bring an IC friendly veggie option (like veggie lasagna with the white sauce instead of the red). We have a few vegetarians in the family, so thats generally an options at our gatherings. When its offered, I eat that.

    Thanks for the reminder. I have not even thought about this yet. I do know the white choc. fudge pie I posted earlier this month. It was so bladder friendly

    I like the idea of cornish hens. It's something different and IC safe. I will take a beef roast to our family gathering so everyone will have a choice.

    You should be able to get a organic, preservatic free turkey or ham from an organic foods store. It will probably be a little more expensive, but it may be worth it.

    You could also just go without meat on Easter, and take a couple of IC friendly sides with you, and just eat those. (taking sides with you will also be very inconspicous)

    You can buy turkey pieces over where they sell chicken pieces. Or you can cook a whole chicken or Cornish game hens.

    Dawn,
    To be honest I haven't really even thought about what we're doing for Easter dinner yet. I have my first hydro on Wednesday so I'm just trying to get through that. My family usually has ham for Christmas dinner though and we were given a ham by my hubby's uncle. I had ham for everybody else and made a turkey breast for myself. I didn't even look to see if it had any of that solution in it but if it did it didn't bother me.
