Ok, time to get back to menu planning. I took the past few weeks off not only because we have been sick but also to clean out my fridge! I've been trying to buy as little as possible to get through the week so I can empty out my fridge and get it cleaned up before stocking it once again. We're down to the bare bones now, just a few fruits in my fruit bowl and a few leftover veggies from our family Easter dinner last night. I've made my grocery list and menu, now to get it cleaned before I have to go shopping this afternoon.
There are only about two times year that I buy ham. Now is one of those times; Christmas it the other. I don't buy ham for Easter dinner, since we usually eat with family, but I love to have it for some of our favorite meals. One of them is on this week's menu, Penne Pasta with Smoked Ham and Pepper Cream Sauce. If you haven't tried it, DO, you'll love it. Some more favorites are Split Pea Soup with Smoked Ham and Kale, and Ham and Swiss Sliders.
