Cooking Times Dilemma

I'm embarrassed because I should be able to figure this out but I'm stumped! I have three things to cook in the oven on Easter and each has a different cooking time and temp. And I have one oven!

Here are the items:

Ham--about 50 minutes at 325, then an additional 8-10 minutes at 425 (for the glaze)

Potato side dish--60 minutes at 350

Roasted carrots--450 for 15 minutes or until carrots are lightly browned

I already have about all of the ingredients I need to make these things so I hate to change my menu. Any ideas on how I can make all of these things work???

Thanks!

Cook the ham and potatoes together at 325-350. (or somewhere in between). Put the potatoes in first then add the ham 10-15 minutes later.

Cook the carrots and the glazed ham together at 425-450 (or somewhere in between). Take the ham out then leave the carrots in for the extra time.

These minor temp differences won't matter.

I agree with Andy - Be creative with your cook temperatures, and when to input to the oven the individual items. I have had a lot of meals turn out great with good timing and temperature change. Just takes practice. Casper
