On the Menu

I volunteered to bring the main dish and sides for church tomorrow. This is what’s on the menu:

Spiral-Sliced Ham
Pioneer Woman’s Do-Ahead Mashed Potatoes
Sweet Potatoes (with butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon)
Peas and Carrots
Whole-Wheat Bread
Fresh Fruit Salad (pineapple, apple, and banana chunks, with bowls of chopped walnuts, sweetened dried coconut, and sweetened dried cranberries on the side for toppings)
Dessert (made by someone else in the church)

There’s really not a ton of preparation involved. The most time-consuming thing was peeling ten pounds of potatoes, which my sweet husband did for me. The mashed and sweet potatoes are made, and just need to be heated tomorrow. The ham is pre-cooked, so it just needs to be heated through as well. I will steam the peas and carrots and mix them with butter and salt right before it’s time to go. Same for chopping up the fruit for the salad. The bread’s easy, too–I’m just going to make it in the bread machine, cut it in chunks, and serve it hot with butter.
