Well, I made it through hosting my first family holiday…Easter! 

There were nine of us total, which is a pretty small crowd for my normally large family gatherings. The food was fantastic. I made a ham, of course! (See picture…it was just too pretty not to take a picture of it!) I also made riced potatoes, plain steamed green beans, roasted asparagus with balsamic vinegar and a little shredded parmesan cheese, roasted sweet potatoes, Jell-O and strawberry shortcake for dessert. Everything was pretty healthy, yet super delicious. I was so excited. And my family loved the meal. Or at least they said they did anyway! It’s neat to know that you can make a holiday meal and make it healthy. Now, they want me to host Thanksgiving! I said, "No thanks!" : – )
