This almost did not happen. I was not planning on making Easter dinner for the shelter. They get hams donated and they prepare Easter dinner for all the homeless and the elderly in the area. They have tons of volunteers and they do this all on Good Friday. I assumed it was all taken care of. However, The Blog Tech was volunteering that day and he texted me telling me that all the guys were asking what I was making and when I would be bringing it. So, I jumped into action and made my super duper ham recipe. I made 3 of them. You can find the recipe here: http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/search?q=ham
This does make the world's best ham.
1 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
2-1/4 tsp. rapid rise yeast
1/2 cup shortening
3-1/2 to 3-3/4 cups flour
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
Mix this all together until you have a smooth dough. Cover and let rise until doubled. Roll this out into a large rectangle.
We packed everything up and delivered it to the shelter for Saturday's dinner. My daughter leaves today to start her new job tomorrow. My son is going to dinner at his girlfriend's parents. I am sick of cooking Easter food so we are going out to eat Korean tonight!
