Easter Dinner and Our Menu Plan

Easter is this Sunday! It’s so late this year, it seems like it we already celebrated it. Part of our families Easter tradition is Ham Dinner. I suppose because my Mom used to always fix it…you know, turkey on Thanksgiving and ham on Easter.

I have cooked many Easter Dinners over the 20+ years of marriage, but I have only cooked a spiral ham a few times. I don’t do anything fancy with it, just add a little brown sugar, a handful of cloves and pineapple. So when Walmart challenged me to cook a Spiral Sliced Ham with all the fixins’, I knew exactly what I wanted to cook.

Here are some of the ingredients we used…

  • Smithfield Spiral Sliced Ham
  • Betty Crocker Au Gratin Potatoes
  • Green Giant Green Beans
  • Del Monte Pineapple Chunks {watch my video showing you how Walmart is committed to saving you money}
  • Crescent Rolls

And of course, we had to have dessert…

Easy Strawberry Pie…YUM!

Since we still have the rest of the week before Easter, here is Our Menu Plan

Monday ~  NYC…making Mini Meatloafs ahead for the family to eat

Tuesday ~  Tuna Casserole

Wednesday ~  Sloppy Joes, Chips, Salad

Thursday ~  Baked Ziti, Parmesan Knots, Salad

Friday ~  Pizza

Saturday ~  Honey Lime Grilled Chicken {recipe from Mommy’s Kitchen}, Rice

Sunday ~ Happy Easter

    Here Lamb would be more traditional for Easter, and this year I’m going with traditional with a twist, Greek lamb with herbs and garlic.
    That strawberry pie looks yummy.

    I, too, am glad for the return of fabric at WM. I worked at WM for 2 1/2 years and most of it was in
    fabric department. I was surprised at how many people still sewed. They had some great fabric – good sources for supplying their stores. People were amazed at the stock and the prices.

    Also, I don’t agree with everything WM does but it is a great source of employment, especially for those who have lost their source of income. I worked in a position helping people find jobs and I sent many people to WM because if you can pass a drug test you can get a job. They even worked with my schedule and my needs as a single mom. Don’t say bad things about WM to me.
    I am MOST happy about the fabric!!!

    Very nice start with the Smithfield Ham! I’m glad to see that Smithfield meats has made fairly significant inroads in the Midwest. They are the largest ham (and other pork and food products) producer iin the world, started in Smithfield, Virginia in 1936, and they still use many of the early curing and seasoning processes for preserving pork that have been used for many, many years.
    I grew up in southeastern Virginia for the first 20 years of my life, and Smithfield products were an everyday part of our menus.
    The rest of the menu looks pretty traditional, and I usually do more “from scatch” cooking than “from boxes” but I am definitely going to check out that Strawberry Pie recipe!

    Ham for Christmas and ham potpie with a good ham broth for the cut out dough squares. Good winter stick to the ribs meal. So for Easter it’s Top or Bottom round roast, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole and fresh candied sweet potatoes!

    I use to do all my shopping at Walmart, but lately I’ve noticed their prices are getting as high as any other store. I try to compare prices with my receipts from my last purchase. Also,I’d like to know where they get their meats. Does anybody know?
