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.

I have nothing planned. There is a duck in the freezer needs some attention and may do it. I'm ushering the 0800 service so have the rest of the day to cook.

My friend, Kathy, and I had my take on a Polish Easter dinner at my house last night.

Kathy's Easter meal tradition is Chinese. We'll have that at her house tonight (photos later).

Last night's Polish menu:

Roast lamb
Blue Seal kielbasa (from Chicopee, MA)
Pittsfield rye bread (from Pittsfield, MA)
Colored eggs
Horseradish (Farmer's brand)
Buttered and dilled cabbage that was boiled in water with a couple of splashes of vinegar

These are the pics I just got.
The ham was from Kroger and just delicious, the whipped cream cheese and chive potatoes (look Shermie, I used the mixer lol).. the ham gravy is wonderful and of course the green bean casserole.
I'll post dessert and others later.
That plate was all I could handle for now.

We kept it simple - emotional day. I did a Smithfield (applewood smoked) half ham in the Dutch oven, baked potato, deviled eggs, and pickled beets. The ham was one of the best we've had and will go back to WinCo tomorrow to see if any are left.

I spend a new bottle of Beaver Brand Horseradish and it's not for the young.

Thanks Lee.
Looks like ham sandwiches, ham salad and ham and bean soup in the future.
That is a gorgeous tasting ham.
I'll never buy another brand but Kroger.

Last night I took the beet juice from several jars of pickled beets and put them in with 11 leftover hard boiled eggs. Someone put a raw egg in the the hard boiled - April Fools on me? I'll leave them sit in the juice for a week or two before trying them.

Christmas we had a Hormel ham and it was excellent. WinCo didn't have them for Easter so got the Smithfield. It was smoked with applewood and excellent.
