Change of plan, decided against lamb, instead it's crispy roast duck, with rhubarb and ginger confit and bakers potatoes

Right now, a prime rib roast is cooking in my oven. As far as side dishes, I was thinking of steamed vegetables (broccoli, carrots) and either boiled finger potatoes or rice pilaf. French silk ice cream for dessert. Yum!

I went to Burger King for a chicken sandwich. For supper, its leftover beans and rice warmed up.

Hello all. Hope everyone had lovely a lovely Easter. I sure have missed chatting while the computer is on the fritz. I thought I was headed in the right direction with the thing but hit another wall. Today I was going to ask a neighbor for some help but they have a relative in the hospital so I will give it another whirl tonight or Wednesday. (Tomorrow is tax -- ugh!). I am on the library computer today. Fortunately it's close to my house.

Easter turned out to be a wonderful day and meal. The plans weren't definite until Tuesday but everything worked out fine. I ate with friends and we had 16 people. Everyone is a wonderful cook. Some of the people present ran a Stuckey's for a while and also had a local restaurant many years ago. Here is the yummy menu: ham, potato salad, macaroni salad (my contribution), congealed salad (lime with cream cheese and pecans), green beans, broccoli casserole, deviled eggs, cheese and fruit platter, mixed green salad, lemon meringue pie (the one with Eagle Brand milk), chocolate cream pie and Easter bunny cupcakes with cream cheese frosting (my contribution). We had two little ones for the egg hunt and beautiful weather. Tonight there are some wonderful leftovers in my fridge. I'll chat with everyone soon.

It was just me and SO. We dined on honey ham, shells and cheese, green beans with slivered almonds, and biscuits. Simple but delicious! Bonus was the leftovers for lunch today (YUM) and decadent afternoon treat of buttered biscuit with honey drizzled over it.

We were on a budget too, I bought a ham butt for $7.50 at our local grocery store. (someone mentioned Aldi's, we don't have that here) I used a recipe called "Monte's ham", it was absolutely delicious! We also had homemade cheesy scalloped potatoes, and sauteed snow peas. For dessert, a "hummingbird" cake. There were only 6 of us, and we're still eating leftover ham. To the OP, what did you finally decide?

Monte's Ham

The recipe is all over the internet, but there's one link. For a smaller ham, I just reduce the cooking time, and cut the glaze ingredients in half. I also add a pinch of ground cloves instead if using whole cloves. The glaze is sooooo good.

Sounds great and I think I have used this recipe before, but under a different title. Thanks for posting!
