Spring has arrived and that means, beautiful weather, sunshine, outside time and of course, Easter! Easter is LITERALLY right around the corner (April 20!) and as a busy, working mom- I want to spend Easter enjoying the day and my daughter versus spending time in the kitchen alll day. Don't get me wrong- I love to cook but not on holidays. I remember eating a Honey Baked Ham for the first time a few years ago and for me, it set the standard on how a ham should taste. This Easter? It's a HoneyBaked Ham for Emma and I!
Did you know that they sell more than ham? You can even pick up a turkey and side dishes. There are so many delicious sides. I opted to grab a ham (I mean, it IS HoneyBaked Ham after all!) and macaroni and cheese, sweet potato souffle and cinnamon apple slices. I do plan to get a turkey one of these times. I can only imagine how amazing they are!
The ham. The beautiful, glorious ham. I literally sang "Ham! Glorious ham!" I am not kidding. My daughter thinks that I have lost it.
I have to admit something. I couldn't wait for Easter. Neither could Emma. I mean how can you wait when THIS is sitting in your fridge? Exactly. You see my point. Of course, I have to taste test before the big day... right? *whistles innocently* I picked up the four lb quarter ham and it's the perfect size for us and will gives lots n' lots of leftovers. Well... maybe we will have leftovers. Might have to buy another ham before Easter. Each ham is slowly smoked and is covered with their signature, sweet, and crunchy glaze
The sweet potato souffle is absolutely heavenly. It's a perfect balance of sweetness without being overly sweet and the pecans added a nice touch of crunch and they were nice and thick.
Cinnamon spiced apples and ham? Match made in hog heaven! Yum!
Here's the "test" plate. Ha. Oh man. This was so good. I am also NOT exaggerating when I tell you that Emma ate FIVE helpings. FIVE. Yes. F-I-V-E. My jaw dropped each time she asked for more and believe me, I am more than happy to pile more on because it's not often she loves something that much. She is not a heavy eater so yeah.. WINNING!
I am going to go back to our HoneyBaked Ham Store and buy more for Easter. Literally- super easy. No time in the oven. Eat the ham cold *sings to the angels*, pop the sides in the microwave, and a side salad and you have an easy, peasy and delicious dinner without all the time and energy used in the kitchen.
Oh and they are so smart- how about a bean soup mix to use with your leftover ham? Yep! I had to have it!
