Sunday Dinner

Baked Ham With Cumberland Sauce
Oven Roasted Potatoes (good recipe here~I do similar with mine)
Broccoli-Cauliflower Casserole
Almost No Bake Dessert

Baked Ham With Cumberland Sauce

5 lb Ham
1/2 c Brown sugar
1 t Dry mustard
Whole cloves*

Cumberland sauce

1 c Currant jelly
1/4 c Orange juice
1/4 c Lemon juice
1/4 c Apple juice
2 T Honey
1 T Cornstarch

Remove skin from ham; score the surface with shallow diagonal
cuts, making diamond shapes. Mix brown sugar and mustard;
rub into fat of ham. Insert a whole clove in center of each diamond.
Place ham in a large roaster with a baking rack. Bake,
uncovered at 325~ for 20 - 22 minutes per pound. For
sauce, combine all the ingredients in a medium
saucepan. Cook over medium heat until thickened,
stirring often. Serve over the slice ham.

*Note: If you don't want to deal with the whole cloves, a teaspoon ground mixed
into the brown sugar will give the same flavor.

Broccoli-Cauliflower Casserole

3 eggs
1 lb. cottage cheese
3 Tbsp. flour
10 oz. pkg. frozen cauliflower and broccoli
1 small can water chestnuts
bacon bits

Mix eggs, cottage cheese and flour until well blended. Fold in the remaining ingredients
and pour into a well-greased casserole. Cover with shredded colby or cheddar cheese
to taste.
Bake one hour at 350. Covered with foil for first half hour.

*Almost No Bake Dessert

1/2 c Margarine, melted
1 c Pecans, chopped
1 1/2 c Graham wafer crumbs
8 oz Cream cheese
4 c Cool whip, divided, thawed
3 oz Chocolate instant pudding
3 oz Vanilla instant pudding
3 c Milk
1 Unsweetened chocolate square
1 c Icing sugar

Mix well margarine, pecans and graham wafer crumbs and
pat into 9x13 in pan. Bake at 350 degrees
till lightly brown, about 20 minutes. Cool completely.
Beat together cream cheese, icing sugar and 1 cup
of Cool Whip. Spoon onto baked layer. Mix both puddings
with milk and beat as per package directions. Let
pudding almost thicken and pour over second layer. Put
remainder of Cool Whip on top and swirl melted
chocolate throughout topping.

*Mom has a version of this called something else, I've seen a few, she makes hers with pistachio pudding and it's really good.

Prayer for Today

I met my husband in a 12-Step program and the first part of this prayer is used
there. Many people have never seen the prayer in it's entirety. There are lines
that are different from the original text but the basic meaning remains the same.

The Serenity Prayer
Reverend Reinhold Niebuhr

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can; and
the wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardship as the pathway to peace.

Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it.

Trusting that He will make all things right, if I surrender to His will.
That I may be reasonably happy in this life,
and supremely happy with Him forever in the next.
