Ham For Easter?

I like ham. I do. But for some reason I cannot explain, we don't seem to ever have it except occasionally for Easter dinner. Do you have ham for Easter?
It sounds good to me:
Looks good, too - pineapple? Interesting - I think I'd like that, too:
I also like it with mustard - either on a sandwich, or just cold with a little slather of mustard on top:

What do you serve with it? I'm fond of potato casseroles - either scalloped potatoes or one of those casserole recipes that uses frozen hashed browns.
This magazine article has menu suggestions:
Angel food cake would be a nice, lighter dessert. And a fruit plate? Great idea:
Or, perhaps you agree that a gelatin salad would be a nice accompaniment to your brunch or dinner? This butterfly idea is pretty - but I wouldn't put vegetables in it like this recipe called for. Nope - fruit only in my gelatin salad,, please:

Need another dessert suggestion? Lemon meringue pie sounds just right for a springtime ending to a nice holiday meal:

So - what's on your menu? Please share! We would love to hear.....

I am not sure what is on our menu, since we are going to a sister-in-law's for dinner. However, I would like to share a way I like ham: Ham steak and cherry sauce. When I worked at the So Cal Auto Assoc in the early 70s they had it in the cafeteria, I could eat it every day. It was simply a nice slice of ham with what seemed like canned cherry pie filling on it. Wow it was good. I might take along some pie filling next Sunday if I hear she is having ham! Love T

I do like the Honey baked Ham, but they aren't cheap and not close by. Just getting a Ham at the local supermarket is usually good enough for me. I do like all the trimmings with a ham dinner!!

I like your new blog look. That ham looks so good. I agree with you on the jello and vegie thing. I too prefer fruit although my Grandma used to make a ribbon salad at Christmas and it had diced celery in it. I loved it. Yum.

well tina - here in cherry country - they put or use cherries in anything possible. we don't eat ham much anymore. johns mom always made an easter ham, hotcross buns, scalloped potatoes - you know - the works. she was a great cook. thats why john does the cooking in our family.

Best ham in the world is Coursey's from Arkansas. If you ever get a chance to order one from them (and you can online) you won't be disappointed. We get one every year for Christmas. Twyla
