Happy Easter everyone!

Tonight is the first night of Passover for us-so I’m not going to serve ham.  LOL.

I did buy one though.  Every year I buy the one on sale.  This year though-it’s only hubby and I living here, so I’m going to have to have him weigh and measure up blocks of this 10 pound wonder and freeze it away.

Of course I’m saving the bone for  some soup at the tail end.

Since it is just the two of us and this ham-here are some of the dishes I’ll work into its use:

Spaghetti al Carbonara (ham, peas and cream sauce basically)

Stir-fried with asparagus over brown rice

Spinach salad-replacing the bacon with the ham of course

BBQ’d in steaks

Chopped up and made into a frittata

Sandwiches for hubby’s lunch

I’ll warm some in the oven with a honey-mustard glaze and serve with baked potatoes

When I’m really getting down to “why are we having this again?“-I’ll shred some potatoes, chop onions and make it into a hash brown dish and let hubby cover his share with some pepper jack cheese.

What are some of your favorite ways to serve your holiday ham?

Love it

    • Hope you had a lovely Sedar...of some kind!  Sounds like your Easter will be delish too!

      I am just not in the mood to do a big meal for the 3 of us this year.  I like your menu...I might just use it!

    • Trudy,

      The most fun Sedar we ever had was a few years ago when I was still working the day job-my parents didn’t come over but our daughter and family came, son and dil to be and I had a few minutes to literally throw together the meal. It normally takes a couple of days.

      Out of the blue-I took out the ham and had my husband grill it and served that w/ the tzimmes, charosets, purchased gefilte fish and asparagus.

      They all just stared at me!  I still get teased about the switch from either roasted leg of lamb or chicken to “tref” as my Yiddish in would say.  But I did notice that not one bite of the ham was leftover!

    • The E.D. & fundraiser at the non profit I work for are both Jewish and we’ve been discussing Sedar dinners for days now! all sounds good for me.

      Here’s a question.  Is it kosher (estatic) for a non-Jewish person to attend a family Sedar?

      I’ve been to Indian Diwali festivities, Muslim Ramadan dinners but never to a Jewish Sedar!  Would I be rude to invite myself sometime?

      Thanks for the insight!!  I don’t want to offend my friends.

    • I don’t think it would be rude-but I figure the more we learn about others the more we enjoy other cultures and religions and see the similarities rather than the differences!

      Jewish food tends to be on the sweet side-and you feel like sleeping for days afterwards.

      I tend to eat very light and healthy, so I’ve adapted a lot of our recipes to that.

      but if you can be part of a Sedar, I think you’d have a long, but interesting time.  Of course, it also depends on the “leader“-my FIL always made jokes and when he passed on and my husband did it-he always turned puns and would “passover” the parts he felt were needless!

      But in my home, there’s always room for one more at the table and certainly enough food to cover the event!

    • We don’t really eat ham on Easter.  Just whatever food I happen to cook, just nicer.  I haven’t decided it yet for this yearhappy
