  • I normally cook Ham, collard greens, macaroni and cheese and rolls. This year I am incorporating more fresh fruits and veggies in my diet. I was thinking about maybe Ham for them withsliced Pineapples/cherries on top, (chicken breast for me) with a broccoli casserole,a fruit salad, parsley potatoes...Im still trying to work it out lol
