Easter Dinner is Covered with HoneyBaked Ham- #HoneyBakedEaster $50 g/c #Giveaway (20 winners!)

HoneyBaked_Holiday_2013I participated in a campaign for HoneyBaked Ham. I received a gift card to facilitate my shopping trip. All thoughts expressed are my own.

The holidays always bring feelings of excitement, but none more than those holidays which bring the family together.  I love my huge family and always look forward to the holiday get-togethers for 2 main reasons; first, because it means the whole family will be together, and second, because it means I get to eat a lot of delicious food!  What I do not look forward to, however, is the stress of cooking.  It would be wonderful to just have the meal prepared for me so all I have to worry about is eating and enjoying the time with my family.  While I don’t have to cook the entire holiday meal (we ladies got smart pretty quick and started signing up to each bring a few different things and take the burden off of one person) I still have to spend time cooking.  As much as I love cooking, even making two of the holiday dishes for a large group of people can be tiring.

I’ve gotten smart now, though.  Before this past Christmas I don’t know that I had ever had HoneyBaked Ham. Crazy, right?  I had no idea what I was missing out on, or how much easier it could be if I’d just let THEM do the work for me!  Whether I sign up to bring the meat or a few of the sides for the holiday meal, HoneyBaked Ham has my back.

Perhaps you’re like I was- clueless as to how amazingly easy and delicious HoneyBaked Ham makes holiday meals.  Let me tell you a bit about how it works at HoneyBaked Ham (you’ll thank me)!

Their meats are fully cooked, so all you need to do to have it ready is to warm it up a bit. At the HoneyBaked Ham store they always have food on hand, but if you have a special request, or if you’re worried about having the right size ham, turkey, or roast for your Easter dinner you can call a few days ahead and place your order.  Additionally, HoneyBaked Ham has quite a few delicious homestyle sides, breads, and desserts available in store for purchase to round out your meal. 

Plenty of sides in storeOur family always has sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, and green bean casserole at every holiday meal, and so I was thrilled to see that the HoneyBaked Ham store has those available!  They also have Potatoes au Gratin, Broccoli Rice Casserole, Macaroni and Cheese, and Cinnamon Apples if you prefer.

Recently we were able to head over to our local HoneyBaked Ham store (shout out to the Paradise Valley HoneyBaked Ham store- you guys rock!) to grab a delicious ham and sides- It’s good to know exactly what we want for our Easter dinner!

Paradise Valley StoreSince we’d been able to try a few of the sides at Christmastime, I knew there were a few we loved and had to have again this time- Macaroni and Cheese and Sweet Potato Souffle- and then I grabbed a few new ones to try- Broccoli and Rice Casserole and Garlic Mashed Potatoes.  The ham we’d had at Christmastime was the boneless ham, so this time I wanted to try the bone-in ham to see if the flavor was any different.  Of course I was thrilled knowing it would take me literally no effort to prepare dinner for the night other than warming the food in the oven, and the entire family was excited to get to have delicious HoneyBaked Ham again for dinner!

HoneyBaked Ham and sides HoneyBaked Ham complete mealEverything was delicious, of course, and we also found that we really preferred the bone-in ham vs the boneless ham. While both are delicious (and have the signature honeybaked crunchy goodness our family loves), the bone-in was more moist and flavorful (especially the pieces nearest the bone).  Although everyone was plenty full, the food was so good we kept eating until there was only a bit of the Broccoli and Rice Casserole and a small amount of ham left (okay, and a bit of sweet potato souffle left that I hid so I could have leftovers the next day- shhhh).  The kids loved everything so much they were making sure everyone got equal amounts of what was left- no fair if someone got to finish the last spoonful and someone else didn’t get to have more! ๐Ÿ˜‰ As I expected, plates were cleaned, seconds and thirds were had, bellies were filled, and people were happy.

clean plateOf course all of that eating meant clean-up was easy for me too. I tossed what was left of the casserole into a tupperware for later, put the ham bone and the chunk of ham in a bag to use for beans or split pea soup later (can’t wait!) and that was it! 

So do yourself a favor for Easter dinner this year- Head over to your local HoneyBaked Ham store, grab all the fixin’s you need for your Easter dinner, and then prepare yourself for a relaxing, stress-free family dinner.  If your family isn’t feeling up for a big meal, try one of their party trays!  Once you’ve experienced the ease and deliciousness of HoneyBaked Ham, your holidays won’t ever be the same!
