The General has used Sinclair Foods’ Baked Potato Salad with Sour Cream for over 10 years. It always gets rave reviews at all of our parties that we have catered. More times than not people in attendance will ask us for the recipe. TLW got smart and started telling folks that it is an old family recipe…(just not our family’s.) Such is the case with ideas…or TG wishes he had thought about it. In Paula Deen’s latest book, “Paula Deen Celebrates!: Best Dishes and Best Wishes for the Best Times of Your Life” (Paula Deen, Martha Nesbit) she talks about decorating for Easter using sod grass on the buffet table. Here are a couple of variations if you don’t want mess with the sod: try TLW’s favorite, wheat grass which is edible or try my idea which to get some astroturf and decorate with Easter eggs, baskets, bunnies, etc.
Paula also has a wonderful recipe for ham (p.77). She calls it Peanut Butter Glazed Ham. Now since we live in the same city as Paula, we don’t want to get into trouble by publishing the whole recipe. Some of the ingredients are chicken broth, creamy peanut butter, and honey. Sounds yummy doesn’t it?
She also gives a recipe for ham salad (p.83) which uses the leftover ham from your Easter dinner.
