Easter weekend was a busy one for us, but it was a good weekend. There was chatting, playing and of course cooking. I had wanted to take photo of me prepping dinner and setting it out, but well we wanted to eat, so other than the two photos posted, I have nothing to share. Safe to say I have learned my lesson and will take the time to take photos. Better planning is a new goal.
On Saturday, before dinner I set out some pepperoni, cheeses, gherkins, and fresh-baked bread (which I hope to share later this week.) For dinner we had ham cooked with pineapple and cherries with a pineapple brown sugar glaze. The sides we mashed sweet potatoes, butter and brown sugar roasted carrots and steamed broccoli. It was good! The dessert was a yummy cheese cake which had a very butter crust because I stink at doubling a recipe.
Then for Sunday dinner, we had a roasted leg of lamb with garlic and rosemary pesto. On the side we had balsamic brussels sprouts and spinach. We also had more fresh-baked bread.
So the meals were simple, but very flavorful and satisfying. It was nice to have some special meals, which in my goals for the week below you will see that one of my goals is to get creative with leftovers.
