Our Easter dinner turned out just as I'd hoped. We had baked ham, sweet potatoes, steamed and buttered Italian green beans, homemade macaroni and cheese, iced tea. Fresh homemade strawberry pie completed our feast. Yummy with plenty of leftovers.

I made linguine Alfredo and Caesar salad, served with Valpolicella. It was really good. I got Stirling to grate the Parmigiano Regiano (60 grams for the Caesar salad and 30 for the Alfredo). It goes fairly quickly with the microplane, but I have been having off and on problems with my wrists and don't want to risk them with all that grating, especially since it's still tax season in Canada.

Jalapeño pomegranate glazed ham, scalloped potatoes, steamed broccoli for DH and steamed asparagus for me.
Green salad too. Not to fancy, but it's just the two of us and I am still recuperating from pinched nerves in my back, it will have to do. Maybe ice cream for dessert. Lots of good sounding meals out there.

Hang in there Dawg and Dawg's DH, you'll be home soon :)

I can't remember the last time I didn't make the usual ham, potato/cheese/sour cream casserole, asparagus or green beans and this wicked floofy pineapple yellow cake concoction.

We went out for Easter brunch: First, a decadent pastry tray, then..."Northwest Salmon Benedict - House alder smoked wild Alaskan salmon, poached free range eggs, scratch made hollandaise, tomato-basil relish, grilled local asparagus, rosemary potatoes"

Drinks were "rosemary infused gin, fresh grapefruit and lemon, finished with sparkling wine and a drop of crème de violette"

It was wonderful, and now DH says we need to have ham etc. next weekend, lol.

Mmmmm! This ham was so tasty and not salty at all, a big plus, and the first asparagus from the garden was delicious!Click image for larger version

All of these food choices sound amazing, especially for such a special occasion. As for me, my family had steak, with roasted potatoes and broccoli. For dessert we had some Salvadorean cheesecake. Salvadorean cheesecake is a the bread most commonly ate in El Salvador.

I have never tried to bake ham before (although it does taste pretty good) , is there a special way of preparing the ham before baking it?
