Such a Ham!

You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces — just good from fresh ingredients.
~Julia Child

Dinner tonight was just a little something that I threw together.  I made some au gratin potatoes then added ham and asparagus.  Bake it all together and, oh YUM, I must say it was delicious!



I cut up the rest of the Easter ham and divided them evenly into three different meal portions.  I'll freeze them to use for another time.

Sadly, there are no more leftovers. Whatever shall I make for dinner tomorrow?

    We are having Tilapia, rice, and broccoli.
    But I'd rather eat leftovers of your leftovers. : )

    1. Connie, I do love when there is extra to make a brand new meal. I was a little worried that the asparagus would come out weird but they were just right!

  5. Dear Gina,

    I am sorry to be so behind in catching up with posts here. I loved reading about your Easter and that marvelous dinner you so lovingly prepared for your family. I am sure it was delicious. Ham and asparagus just seem right together, don't they?

    I received a sweet Easter card in the mail on Monday. My hubby had gotten the mail and said you have a card from...and he named the state. I immediately thought of a young mother that I know in that state. I looked at the envelope and the writing and kept saying, "hmmm, I wonder who this could be from?" Finally he said, "You know, Dear, if you open the envelope you can find out." :) He's such a smart man! :)
