I gotta say, I’m pretty much all over the place, today. Yesterday it was a down-home dish of Easy Cheesy Chili Mac and today? Today, I’m going to Bulgaria, in my mind at least, and serving up Bulgarian Cheese Pot – Сирене по шопски в гювече. If you are from Bulgaria or know Bulgarian, please feel free to correct my translation if it isn’t correct! Google translation has not always done me right!
There’s no doubt summer is here, even in Minnesota, where for the most part it’s been cool. And there’s no doubt Father’s day is just around the corner, too, this Sunday. Father’s day always makes me think about being outside, maybe barbecuing, and barbecuing makes me think about ribs. I mean other than a big T-bone there’s not much more manly than Ribs! And if you’re looking for something different, take a peek at these Spicy Jerk Ribs with Sweet Chutney Glaze.
Well, I’m still in Atlanta, still waiting for my daughter’s wedding and getting all the treatment. A mani/pedi, a massage, cheese and wine. Directions on how to drive and park. (Kids, ugh.) Lemme tell ya, though, this is the life. These Cider Glazed Ribs I made a while back are all but a whisper of a memory, now, but I think they’d be fabulous on Memorial Day Weekend.
Any time I bake a ham, I like to make soup with the bone, but if that ham is made in the late spring, say for Easter or Mother’s Day, you’ll probably want an option that is a little lighter than some of the traditional bean, pea or cheesy potato soups. How about a soup like Old Fashioned Ham Bone Soup? It can be made on the stove top or in the Instant Pot.
There are just a handful of holidays at our house that are graced with a ham. Sometimes Thanksgiving, often Christmas, maybe a holiday party, Easter for sure, and now and then, Mother’s Day. That’s where this Honey Mustard Glazed Ham is coming in.
