I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. We had a lovely day and to top it off a DELICIOUS Easter dinner. Baked ham, homemade 5 cheese macaroni and cheese, bacon wrapped asparagus bundles, buttery corn on the cob, steamed green beans tossed in butter and garlic, sautéed cinnamon sugar pears, deviled eggs, and Parker House rolls. For dessert we had a Lemon Blueberry Cream Cheese pie. Peyton (my 8 year old) helped make the deviled eggs and filled them all by herself. We were very pleased with her finished product.
It was the first time we attempted the Lemon Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie. Presley (my 11 year old) gathered all the ingredients for me and then when I was still busy with other dishes proceeded to make the pie herself.
We celebrated my mom’s birthday yesterday as well since unfortunately she spent hers in the hospital in Arizona. She was proud of Presley’s first solo-made dessert, even with it’s store-bought crust.
We have lots of leftover ham but only enough of the other dishes for a lunch or two. So we won’t be having my favorite day after the holiday meal: LEFTOVERS! But we will be eating ham (and Easter eggs) for the rest of the week. So instead of giving you a daily menu full of leftover ham, I’m going to give you a list of all the delicious things you can make with that ham and let you choose for yourself. Or see Menu Monday 12-5-16 for other ideas.
