Easter Weekend in Columbus, Ohio 2013 – Celebrate with Family and Food
Many of our residents throughout central Ohio will be celebrating Easter this weekend and in light of the holiday, we wanted to share some of our favorite Easter activities and recipes. Here are just a few of our favorites.
It’s very traditional to have an Easter egg hunts in many families, so how can you spice this up? If you’re using plastic eggs, hide prizes like candy, stickers and small toys within them. However, we prefer using real eggs because painting them becomes a fun, family experience in itself. Another way to get the family involved in making Easter decorations. Sure, you can just go to the store and buy decorations but making your own is a great opportunity to get creative and more fun for the kids.
In terms of recipes, here is our favorite:
Honey-Curry Glazed Lamb with Roasted Grapes and Cranberries
- 2 8-rib) lamb rib roasts (2 1/2 lb. each), trimmed

- 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper
- Roasted Grapes and Cranberries
- 5 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Garnish: fresh sorrel sprigs
1) Preheat oven to 425°. Sprinkle lamb on all sides with curry powder, salt, and pepper. Let stand 30 minutes.
2) Meanwhile, prepare Roasted Grapes and Cranberries as directed.
3) Cook lamb in 1 Tbsp. hot oil in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat 6 to 7 minutes, turning often to brown tops and sides. Place lamb, meat sides up, in skillet. Stir together honey and remaining 4 Tbsp. olive oil; brush mixture on tops and sides of lamb.
4) Bake at 425° for 15 to 18 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 130°. Remove lamb from oven; let stand 10 minutes. Cut into chops, and serve with Roasted Grapes and Cranberries. Garnish, if desired.
