Had originally planned a ham meal with the usual sides, but we got a call from Glenn's daughter who lives nearby. "Come to our house. We're having ham." How could we turn that down, plus we'll get to spend some time with the two granddaughters whom we haven't seen since about Christmastime?

Our ham will keep.

Here we are hosting six members of my wife's family covering 4 generations, from her 92 year old father to her sister's daughter and her (the daughter's) 9 year old son.

We are having a citrus jalapeņo glazed ham, roasted glazed carrots, scalloped potatoes au gratin with cheddar and Swiss cheese, asparagus (don't know what preparation as it is being brought by my sister-in-law), rum cake for dessert.

Final menu is: mixed greens with strawberries and oranges (goat cheese or Feta optional), ham, roasted carrots, roasted red and gold potatoes, asparagus with lemon zest and Parmesan cheese, and steamed broccoli (my BIL's absolutely favorite veggie). Dessert? All depends on what/if my SIL is bringing. Leaving it all up to here. And if she chooses "no dessert"? My taste buds might not be happy, but I'm sure my hips will thank her.

Not sure if any food pics will show up, but at least you can tell I have things ready for yummies.

Happy Easter, everybunny!

We had a mail delivery yesterday. But our mail comes at 11 a.m. A lot of companies allow their employees to take leave of their job between the hours of 12 noon and three p.m. for religious purposes on Good Friday. A lot of employees do not return to work. Even Non-Christians.

We are having deep fried scallops with FF. I decided to make my own fries this time. I have already blanched them. Quick and easy. I forgot all about it being Easter this soon. I like it better when it is in April. Still too chilly for the kids to show off their Easter finery.
