We had a wonderful Easter yesterday. Joe and family came up about an hour before dinner was to be ready so Joe and Holly hid the eggs they brought up and ours were already hidden so Luke and Laura had plenty of time to hunt up all the eggs, or at least most of them. Just now I went out on the top deck and looking down on the back yard I could see one egg they missed. Then we all sat down to a honey-mustard glazed ham dinner. It was the best ham I have ever baked. The glaze is put on the last hour of baking and put on every 15 minutes so there was a lot of glaze. After you let the ham rest for 15 minutes you take the glaze that is in the bottom of the pan and boil it down just a little and use it on the slices of the ham. There was quite a little glaze left so I looked at the next recipe on the web site and it was for homey-mustard glazed chicken. I saved the glaze and today I took a package of chicken thighs and a package of frozen lettuce. All I needed to add was some garlic. The chicken come out great and tasted more like ham than chicken so it gives me another way to serve chicken. I got my Sunday chores done this morning so now I can just sit and knit and watch the squirrels come up to lick the old butter churn. We ended yesterday by weeding the lower garden and we got that finished. This week Norman will till that garden and we can start planting it. Next week Joe will not be coming up so when he comes the following week he can help plant that garden unless we have good weather and we get the garden all planted.
Everything is growing well. The peaches are setting the apple trees are in bloom and it looks like we will get some Winesap apples this year, for the first time. The pears are blooming and the grapes are leafing out. Soon I will be able tell if we have a good crop of those. Have a good day.
