I fixed the ham I’d gotten on clearance a few months ago (and froze) for most of us. We did not locate a turkey ham, so we got the turkey pastrami from the deli for Michael. Unfortunately we did not have any sukrin gold fiber syrup, so we combined the sukrin gold “brown sugar” with mustard for the topping. It was good.
I’d planned to get some Dreamfields’ spaghetti and break it up before cooking in ham broth to make noodles but our stores were out of stock. Thankfully I coerced my hubby into stopping at store on the other side of town on his commute. He came home with 4 boxes!
We had caulitaters in the stead of mashed potatoes, and fried green beans, which are always a hit at our dinner table.
I made a double batch of PayOff Day Candies, which were gone in 24 hours. (I cut each ‘bar’ into 3 or 4 pieces to encourage slower eatage. ) I made the Easter Story Cookies, which I wrote about here. I also made Carolyn’s Boston Cream Poke Cake (from AllDayIDreamAboutFood and Swerve website) but it was too warm the first evening and then still wasn’t my favorite the next day when it was completely chilled. I think I’d like a THM Trifle better.
Of course the ham is a gift that keeps on giving. So we had Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole a few days later and lovely leftovers for several lunches.
I mention this now because it is after the holiday is over that I like to stop and see what worked and what didn’t so that I can make notes, in my bullet journal, for next year and thought maybe there were others that were making their notes as well.
Until next time, God bless,
