I offered to host easter at my house.. and cook! First off I am still at the beginning stage of cooking. Dh says they probably won't show up but still if I cook either way I will still have left overs. Any ways any ideas on what I can cook that is easy?

The spiral sliced hams are super easy. Just put it in a deep pan and reheat in the oven for about an hour to hour and a half at 325-350. Heat a little olive oil in a nonstick skillet. Add either canned or frozen green beans with a little soy sauce and minced garlic and heat until warm. Use idahoan instant potatoes if you like or au gratin, add crescent rolls and its an easy meal.

Yup, Ham is super easy and does the work itself! Potato or rice pilaf as side are great and veggie or garden salad are a snap to make. Plan ahead and start the item that takes the longest, first and so on down the line. Buy a dessert, it doesn't all have to be homemade, that's what I do ;)

ham....i have thrown mine in the oven or the crockpot. I was always intimidated by ham but it was super easy....i just followed the directions on the package for the oven temp and how many minutes of cooking time per pound. Then i had lots left for ham and beans later and chopped up some for pizza toppings.

Sweet potato casserole or mashed potatoes go well. Dinner rolls. A salad. And pick a veggie. Done. :) Oh, and dessert of course!

 The day before, make a dessert. Boxed brownies or lemon bars would be good, or buy a dessert at the bakery. Cook your ham in an oven bag. So simple. The directions are on the wrapper inside. You find them near the plastic storage bags in the grocery. Make mashed potatoes of scalloped potatoes from a box. Green beans with almonds sprinkled on top, and frozen rolls to heat up.

I agree, this is all we're having as well.

Quoting OliviaW.:

Ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn or green beans plus biscuits.
