Welcome to the end of my Easter weekend. I'm so full. And I only got 2 bits of chocolate! I'm full of ham, mustard tatties, prime rib, turkey, eggs bennie, french toast,bacon, sausage, mussels and what can best be described as warm fried dough balls of yumminess. Oh and lets not forget the carrot cake and apple pie. All of that was just my intake during the last 2 days! Good Friday we had a lovely whole rainbow trout with steamed carrots and turnip with curry cabbage followed with the first serving of fresh homemade carrot cake.
The ham I cooked up today was one I got from our local market and it was perfection in a smoked dress. While it was quite a bit more expensive than just grabbing a ham from the grocery store the taste more than outweighed the extra cost. I really do want to get all my special occasion meats/roasts from local farmers. It's hard to afford it for everyday meats but wowzers is it worth it for holidays/special occasions.
Now my life will be filled with fruits, veggies and well, leftover ham.... Is it sad that I'm already thinking about a snacking on the leftover ham and it's not even cooled off enough to go into the fridge yet?! Lord give me strength! (oh damn, I should have gotten some cauliflower this weekend to make this great ham and cauliflower casserole recipe)
