Week 167 Menu…and Happy Easter!

This morning I asked Anna (2) if she’d like some cereal, to which she replied, “No, thank you. Not today.” Could this be the reason?

    My favorites to eat with ham (besides cheese) are either asparagus or broccoli. Here is one simple casserole to help with ham leftovers:
    Ham ‘n Broccoli Bake
    * 1 1/2 cups chopped fresh broccoli
    * 4 slices cooked ham
    * 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
    * 2 cups basic white sauce
    * 2 teaspoons dry mustard
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * dash pepper
    * 1 tablespoon minced onion
    White Sauce
    * 2 tablespoons butter
    * 2 tablespoons flour
    * 1 cup milk
    * salt
    * white or black pepper
    Cook broccoli until almost tender; place in buttered casserole. Top with sliced ham. Make white sauce and add cheese to thickened sauce; cook over low heat until cheese has melted. Add remaining ingredients to the sauce; pour over ham and broccoli. Bake casserole at 400° for 20 to 25 minutes.
    Serves 4.
