It felt like several weeks had passed since we had had friends over for dinner even though only a week had passed. I got it in my head that I wanted to make a ham somewhere around mid-week. Luckily it is usually fairly inexpensive so the it doesn’t break the bank. Almost everything else in the meal was either a pantry staple or from our CSA share.

Eggplant, summer squash and tomato casserole.
Parker House rolls

Bought a ~9 pound ham. Cooked it for 3 hours at 325°F in an oven bag with 1/2 can of ginger ale added at the beginning. The ham came out very moist and tasty. Didn’t bother with a sauce or anything else.
The vegetable casserole used the sweeter machiaw eggplant and was basically a ratatouille. Jenith said she liked this dish.
