Forget Cookin' - It's a #HoneyBakedEaster This Year!

This post was sponsored by HoneyBaked Ham, however all opinions expressed are 100% my own. 

We have a unique situation this Easter.  We won't have any family around, since they've all been in and out the last month or so for the birth of our third (and final) daughter, whom we loving call, "The Bookend."

So, instead of fussing around the kitchen, toting a newborn and two toddlers in attempt to cook an Easter dinner, I'm taking the easy, and delicious way OUT... 

HoneyBaked Ham

Since I'm still recovering from the birth of our third bambino, I told my hubby all about HoneyBaked Ham's current In-Store Specials, and sent him to the Plano, TX location on the way home from work today to pick up our meal, with a coupons in hand!

 Here is what he picked out for our Easter Dinner: 

Main Dish: Half Ham

Now, I'm not sure what we are going to do with 7lbs of ham, but I foresee lots of ham sandwiches in my children's near future. 

There's just something about that deliciously sweet and savory crunchy glaze that makes the whole house sing of holiday memories. 

This ham was super easy to prepare, just throw a tent of aluminum foil over the top and throw it in a 275 oven for 10 minutes per pound, if you want it warm.  Of course, this bad boy is just as good cold, in my book. 

My almost 2 and 3 year old chowed down their portions of the ham, so it's a BIG WIN in my book. All the adults loved it as well.

Sides: Spinach Artichoke Dip & Sweet Potato Souffle

Let's start with the Sweet Potato Souffle. Wow, talk about a sweet home cooking sort of comforting side. 

We all loved the crumble top to create a little necessary texture contrast to the silky sweet sweet potato puree below. If we're being picky, it was teetering on the almost too sweet scale, and is probably better as a dessert than a side.

Second, came the Spinach Artichoke Dip. Unfortunately, we went wrong here somehow. 

I'm not sure if it was our cooking method (oven) or if it had thawed a little too much on the way home, but this dish ended up as a soupy mess.  I couldn't get it to "gel" together at all, as you can see in the photo, it's practically half full of water. 

McKinney Mommas' Note: My advice would be to try another side instead of the Spinach Artichoke Dip, as even despite the watery consistency issue, the flavor was honestly a little too similar to cracking open a boring old can of spinach.

....and for dessert? Rum Cake!

We waited till the kids were asleep, then sliced up a couple of pieces of this Rum Cake with a glass of milk. O-M-....okay I can't bring myself to use that acronym, it's WAY too trendy for me - heh, heh, but you get the idea.

You can really taste the sweet rum coming through this dense, and heavenly dessert.  A little on the expensive side, at $25, but it's sure to be a crowd pleaser, with a little coffee on the side after a delicious HoneyBaked Easter Dinner! 

Are you wondering how YOU can relax and make memories this Easter, instead of slave away in the kitchen all day? 

I'll tell you!
