My Favorite….

….Meal for Easter Dinner….

I’ve always had or made a ham dinner for Easter.  I do have to say that ham is my favorite thing to have at Easter.

For a long time now I’ve made a spiral ham with mashed potatoes, carrots, & cabbage.  Which is a great meal to have anytime of the year.

This past Easter I made a boiled dinner, something that I haven’t had or made in over 12 years!!!!

I can’t believe it’s been that long since I’ve had this dinner.  If I had a choice of a boiled dinner or make a spiral ham, I would definitely have a boiled dinner.

It’s so easy to make & delicious!

Here’s what I did to make this long forgotten meal.


10 lb smoked shoulder (or any size you like)

4 small bags baby Ukon Gold potatoes (these were great b/c there was no need to cut them (unless they are a little on the large side)

1 bag of baby carrots

1 medium size cabbage

Directions:  cut the larger pieces of fat off of the smoked shoulder & place in a large stock pot, fill with enough water to cover the smoked shoulder; bring to a boil; once it comes to a boil drain out the water & refill with new water; bring to a boil again & drain the water.

While the smoked shoulder is coming to another boil, you can get the carrots, potatoes, & cabbage ready.  If you find that the baby carrots are on the large side, feel free to cut them in half or you can just leave them as is.  For the potatoes, I didn’t have to cut up many of them b/c they are already a great size.  There were a few that I did cut in half just so they didn’t take all day to cook.  I took the outer layer of the cabbage off, cut it in half & then cut the halves into four pieces each.

After you’ve drained the smoked shoulder for the second time, place it back into the pan.  Then add the potatoes, carrots, & cabbage into the pot & fill with enough water to cover everything; bring to a boil & lower heat to medium & cook until the cabbage, carrots, & potatoes are cooked.  Take everything out of the pan & enjoy with some Apple Cider Vinegar & your favorite Mustard.

I’m definitely going to make this again.  Sooner rather than later I really do enjoy this meal.

What did you make for your Easter Dinner?

Love, Peace, & Happiness
