OK, it isn't traditional but it is things I like!

Oh, for appetizer I have some fresh pears I will be slicing.
count your blessings! Some wish they had that choice!! Sounds really great! Just to enjoy the stillness is a pleasure and one seldom has that.

Thanks for sharing and we will all be thinking of you.

I was going to make a ham, but for some reason that doesn't sound good to me.

I might make Mark his own little meatloaf. There are a few chicken legs in the freezer. That sounds better to me than ham. I'll put some kind of a crunchy coating on them. With that, we'll have the same sides... scalloped potatoes and corn or green beans.

I know I'm weird. We just have ham every year, and I just felt like a change.

I picked up a spiral sliced ham, will make biscuits, not sure what else. My son goes back to college (2 hr. south), I go back to school (2 hr. north) this afternoon. I have scotch eggs in the oven now for a nibble before church, will get my mise en place for the biscuits to throw together after.
oh, there's the alarm clock now, better get going....

Thanks.. Just thought I would let everyone know, the sirloin roast came out perfect. Nicely crusted, pink and juicy inside... The baked sweet potato along with the vinegar slaw made for a nice balance of all the flavors and who doesn't love croissant rolls. I'm too full for desert right now, I'll have that later as a snack.

It's just be and the dh tonight so I am thinking of making a small roasted chicken and some asparagus or green beans and bacon. We purchased a cherry cheesecake from the local bakery so that's for dessert.

Easter lunch turned out amazing! Simple ham shank, scalloped potatoes, carrots and salad, but being such a rainy awful day here it just seemed to go down nicely! I've said it before, but I will say it again, while I won't give up my catering, I am really enjoying getting back to "down-home cooking" for my Dad and DH. And I never tire of hearing "as good as your Mother's", because she was a very good cook.
