Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

Jimmy, you are having ham, turkey, pizzagaina AND kielbasa??? For how many people? LOLOL!

Peep and Jimmy, would you please post your pizzagaina recipes in a new thread for that subject? And take pictures, if you can. I'd love to make that some day.

I'm having Chinese food on Easter - a tradition of one of my friends for decades and I told her I'd join her. I baked my monster ham last weekend and will have HB eggs and kielbasa some night next week.

I had a cousin ( God rest her soul ) that she and her friend, baked a Ham.

No Big Deal, Right?? .... Not Really, but.......
They prettied up in their fancy nighty wear, ( in the sixties they called them Barbie Wear )
and their bunny slippers, and, as they sat up in bed, they each had a paring knife, and sat the Ham Between them on a Tray, and they cut cut cut and picked that ham clean, whilst they watched TV. God rest her soul. Her friend died of a massive heart attack, and she died young ( 52 ) of a burst Aorta. "Gee, I wonder why ? ?"

SOoooo! Every time I carve the Ham....I think of cousin Glenda! .... That's a heck of a way to remember people, but I can remember better, if I relate them to F O O D !

There will be a vegitarian mac and cheese dish with tomatoes and a ham and potatoe casserole with fried Cure 81 ham on the side. I wish I had some fresh horseradish. There may be a side or two, just not sure what.

Great story, Jimmy! I can see myself doing that! I chop off a couple of slices for an "after school snack" almost every day when I come home from work. It IS addicting!

We do that here, but not as we sit in bed! hahahaha We sit it on a platter on the kitchen counter.

Tina yells at me for cutting all the good ham, ( the red sweet slices near the bone ) and I leave her the fat. I make sure I get the crispy fat on the outside.

Geeze... I'm getting hungry thinking of it!

Update to menu:

I found a nice small leg of lamb (just under 5 lbs with bone which I had the butcher debone) so no ham. The free 10 lb smoked ham shank is in the freezer. Can't wait to use the bone for split pea soup LOL
And the green beans looked nasty so out with them and asparagus are now on the menu.

A wonderful Easter day!

Got to spend some time in the back yard in the sun, listening to oldies radio.

My friend, Kathy, and I shared a special Chinese meal for Easter - a tradition that Kathy and her Dad used to share.

Lovely!

Looks excellent, Lee. I'm reminded of the Chritmas Story Chinese dinner.

I never got any pictures but we had ham, scolloped potatoes, scolloped corn, carrots with maple syrup, strawberry pie, and lemon bars.
