Backyard Easter

Last spring, I found an abandoned robin’s nest in our backyard.  I’ve kept it all this time and decided to turn it into my Easter table centerpiece.  I love finding and using stuff from my yard to decorate in the house.  I think it turned out pretty cute — what do you think?

I also made a fresh ham for the first time.  I used a ham we had from the local farm we get our meat from once a year.  I’d only ever had the pre-cooked hams from the grocery store, so I didn’t know what to expect.   Who knew a fresh ham isn’t pink and salty at all and tastes and looks a lot like a pork loin.   It was delicious!

As good as the ham was, the hit of the dinner table was the caramelized onion and three cheese scalloped potatoes.  Yum!

Hope you had a wonderful Easter!
