Saturday - Happy Easter (one day early)!!!

Mixed olives and rosemary crostini

Ham (heat and serve)
Roasted potato slices with homemade aioli
Steamed asparagus with lemon

Hot tea
M and I are celebrating Easter (at least the dinner part) one night early. Our family is leaving for a week long trip on Monday morning, and it seemed weird to do the big dinner right before a trip. This way we can have ham sandwiches tomorrow after T's egg hunt. Regardless, because this is right before a trip and it's just us, this is a pretty scaled back holiday meal for our house. It feels festive even though it's very low key. There are no recipes to post for tonight (yes, it's that scaled back). You warm the ham, blend minced garlic, lemon, salt, and pepper into some mayonnaise to make aioli, roast potatoes, and steam asparagus. Very easy. I hope all of you who are celebrating around now enjoy your feasts!

Prep Notes
Difficulty: Easy
Chopping: Potatoes
Time: 50 minutes, mostly unattended as potatoes roast
Make ahead: Yep. I like roast potatoes best fresh, but they can sit and be re-warmed if need be.

J: "Easter Vigil = easy, festive, and sinfully yummy!"
M: "Happy Easter!"
