I'd say buy a pork, what is it part called, the one that is from rear leg? Season it a night before, stuff it with som ecloves of garlic, and in the morning put it in the oven before going to church. Cooke it covered at about 325-350.
Make mashed potato ahead of time, takes only few minutes to worm it up in the oven. If you put mushrooms on the botom of the pork, bu the time you come home you'll have an awesome gravy for mashed potatoe with mushrooms. It will be supper yummy.

Are you talking about "Southern Maryland Stuffed Ham"?
Corned Ham stuffed with cabbage, kale, onions and spices?

Hi Patty, No not a true Southern Md corned ham, just a fresh ham prepared the same way with kale, collards, mustard greens ect....
I would like to try it one day though. I think that I may be able to order one from the grocery store if I give them enough notice.

I accidently stuffed a fresh ham once. Really they are just a pork roast. It diffently not the same. Just take a ride down to St. Mary's County and pick one up. You probably can get one in Charles County also.

Can you give me some suggestions for dishes that can be prepared early? We will all be going to Church and I won't get home until 1p.m. or so and will be having people over at 3pm.

Any help will be appreciated.

Since it is the first holiday in spring/summer, I would go with the picnic theme. Deviled Eggs, Potato Salad, Cole Slaw, Macaroni Salad, Baked Beans, Three Bean Salad ect., all of which can be made in advance.Baked Ham and/or a Oven Stuffer Roaster for the meats. IMHO

All these can be prepared ahead and cooked/reheated or served cold/room temperature

Ham

Turkey

Rolls / rye bread

Deviled eggs

chilled asparagus

beets

apple sauce

scallooped potatoes

quiche / mini quiches

Fritata

anything you can serve out of a crock pot can be kept warm (soup, stew, cabbage)

cake or cookies for desert

Hi Patty,
I'm sorry I just saw your post. I don't have a recipe a friend is bringing the cake. I'll ask her but I'm not sure if she will share, Fingers crossed
