Asian inspired gefüllte fish - cilantro, spring onions, toasted sesame seeds.
Avgolemono - Greek egg/lemon chicken soup - You can find a good starting point in Jewish Holiday Cooking by Joan Nathan, although mine is more Turkish than Greek (shhh!)
Braised beef roast with carrots and pearl potatoes and home preserved peaches
Heart of palm and marinated artichoke salad
Apio made with 2 kinds of celery and artichokes - another starting point for this is Taste of Tradition
3 kinds of macaroons - almond/cocoa; chocolate coconut, white macaroons with pecans. The cocoa one is based on Mama Leah's Jewish Kitchen, but made kosher le pesach by making my own confectioners sugar with ultrafine sugar and potato starch.
Nut torte with coffee filling - weather permitting
3 kinds of charoses - Iraqi with coconut, figs, dates, apples, raisins; mango/apple (my version of Janos Wilder's from Joan Nathan's Jewish Cooking in America; and a Georgia version of standard Ashkenazi apple/pecan.

We do the same menu each year, and I'd be happy to share my menu for the day (with recipes to come later).
I'd also like to hear about how each family celebrates Passover.
I do the second seder each year and plan to host about 20 people this year in my teeny, tiny house. People literally walk in the door and have to sit down. :) We are three generations of three families. We make up a division of labor before the big day - thankfully!
Two kinds of charoseth (Sephardic, Ashkenazic)
Fresh garden salad (tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, etc,) with dressing
Gefilte fish with Tulkoff's red horseradish
Hardboiled eggs (marinated in salt water)
Matzo ball soup
Vegetarian dish (changes from year to year - usually made with quinoa)
Steamed spring vegetable (Broccoli or asparagus)
Homemade macaroons (one side has been dipped in chocolate)
One thing we have found is that the only desserts I bother with are ice pops and chocolates. Cakes are either bad or only eaten by my, not by dh and the kids. The children love to help make rocky road chocolates for Pesach--we melt chocolate in a double boiler, mix in minimarshmallows and chopped almonds, spread on foil, and cool; then break into bite-sized pieces. Much cheaper and more fun than the expensive Barton's chocs.
Plus with Pesach starting motzei Shabbos this year, I need to have all the 3 days' cooking really done in advance (yes, I can cook on yom tov, but it's much easier to know it's done and I can sit at seders, go to shul, etc).
Keep the ideas coming, those who are ahead of me!
Please, we have to get through Purim first
Right you are! So are you baking hamantaschen? If so, what flavors? I'm doing poppy seed, cherry and apricot this year.
At this point I won't bother baking any as we'll get so many on Friday from everyone else. Our shalach manos we'll be giving are big cookie baskets (with little grape juice bottles too), so I've been baking and freezing batch after batch of cookies for the last 3 weeks.
Actually now I need to come up with a Purim seudah menu--our synagogue seudah was just cancelled so suddenly I need to make one at home this year when I wasn't planning on it. I guess I'll probably make deli roll, bourekas, and a salad with fruit and nuts, with dessert provided by all the neighbors' shalach manos gifts!
...and I'm against chocolate hamataschen. I'll only make ones filled with fruit or nuts. If anyone wants ones with chocolate filling, they have to come, help me bake, and fill the hamantaschen themselves. :)
Chag sameach to all!
Chicken and Egg frittata
Potato- Meat Pie
Figs in orange juice
Pear and leaf salad
Sweet potato salad
Spinach with pine nuts and raisins
Almond and walnut macaroons
-still tinkering but have done about 2/3 of the shopping.
