Orthodox Easter Menu Ideas

My friend Carla asked me to come up with menu ideas for Orthodox Easter which is this Sunday.  She lives in Jordan and said that Ham and Lamb aren't common foods there - so I came up with suggestions that do not involve those meats.

Artichoke Dip - my family serves this at every holiday
Asparagus Wrapped in Prosciutto - this is what I brought to Easter dinner this year
Jam and Brie Phyllo Cups - very very quick and easy

Chicken Piccata  - this lemony dish seems springy to me
Chicken with Honey Curry Sauce - an easy to make crowd pleaser
Woody's Pork Tenderloin - easiest recipe I know - see recipe below - I will post a photo soon
Chicken Tetrazzini - feeds a crowd

Low Fat Carrot Cake Cupcakes -carrots, Easter, makes sense to me
Low Fat Chocolate Pie - very easy, very good
Nutella Cheesecake - quick, easy, and involves Nutella.

Woody's Pork Tenderloin

You will need:
Pork Tenderloin
1 cup Red Wine
1 cup Worcestershire Sauce
1 cup Soy Sauce

Step 1:
The night before combine the wine, worcestershire sauce, and soy sauce in an oven safe glass pan.  Then add the pork and let marinate over night.

Step 2:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  While the oven is preheating, take the pork out of the fridge and let it and the glass pan come to room temperature.  I have been told that placing a cold dish right in the oven might result in it breaking.  Then place the pork it in the oven with the marinade and cook at 350 for about 30-45 min. Basically until it is done. 

* This goes very well with mashed or roasted potatoes
