What’s on the Menu Monday

Welcome to

What’s on the Menu Monday!

We can start off the week swapping ideas for dinner for the week, or just share a couple great recipes.  Whatever floats your boat.

I have wanted to make a ham since Christmas, but since it’s just Mike, Haley, my Father in Law, and me, I did not want to make a ginormous 7+ pound ham.  Last Christmas there were like 9 of us and we didn’t even eat the whole thing.  But I really wanted to make a ham.  Then one of my neighbors told me I can buy a much smaller ham, like 3 pounds.  Whoa, who knew?  Well I didn’t and I was thrilled.  So I got one at Hy-Vee, 2.5 lbs for $6.99.  This is the recipe I used.  Since I didn’t have a 7 lb ham, I changed the serving size to 7 and used those measurements.  I used crushed pinapple instead of rings because, well, that’s what I had. Also, I felt it was cooking way too slowly so I upped the temp to 400.  I use a meat thermometer, so I don’t know how long I cooked it, but I read somewhere 15 mins per pound.  Since it’s already cooked and technically you’re just warming it up you don’t have to worry about under cooked meat. The last 5 degrees I put the oven on broil and it was Awesome!  My husband, who keeps telling me he doesn’t like ham but who enjoys it whenever I make it, loved it.  Definitely going to make this again.

    I love your blog so much!! Ham is a funny food, people will say they don’t like it but everyone seems to love it when it’s served. Go figure. Great job, Baby. I love you.
