Yep, just the two of us so I've got the ham enjoying the oven. Letting it cook low and slow all afternoon. Should be just about perfect by mealtime.

I made a sweet potato casserole yesterday that'll go in to finish baking about 30 minutes before serving time and we'll have the last of the Italian green beans from the freezer as another side.

Just finished putting the coconut buttercream icing and coconut on the Coconut Pineapple Cake we're having for dessert. Omigosh, the icing is to die for!!!!!

Just the two of us. DD, SIL and granddaughter live 3 hrs away. Just too long of a day in the car for an 18mo old and there is not a Monday holiday here so they have to do it in one day.
So.....we are having Salmon with brown sugar/smoke glaze. Creamed new potatoes and peas, and a salad of spring greens and strawberries or maybe pears. DH's Rhubarb crisp with vanilla ice cream for dessert.

dessert is a couple of mini fruitti di boscos.

I made the full works for dinner, Brown sugar & honey ham, scalloped potatoes, honey-butter carrots, asparagus, rolls and Babaka bread. For dessert, mascarpone cheesecake with strawberries or home-made chocolate sauce and whipped cream.

This was dinner.... oh, and we had some unexpected guests show up for dinner.

Looks like you need to call the exterminator... you have a bad infestation.
