Well we did it! Dan and I successfully had my Aunt, Uncle and their two kids over for supper with nothing bad happening and supper turned out to be wonderful! I left work an hour early to come home and clean up, finish supper, shovel the sidewalk, etc. I’m glad I did though, supper was ready pretty much just on time. The ham was simple just put in a bit of water and pepper, baked it at 325F for 2 1/2 hours… but then there was these… these new baby potatoes that I found in the store..
Dilly Baby Potatoes
1 lb baby potatoes
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 1/2 – 2 tbsp dried dill
Boil the potatoes for about 15 minutes or until done. Meanwhile in a small pot, melt the butter on low heat so it doesn’t burn. Add the dill and cook while stirring for 5 minutes. Pour over the potatoes to coat. Serve immediately.
I didn’t use all the butter/dill sauce.. but these potatoes were to die for! They pop in your mouth when you bite into them and then they just melt. My Aunt and I were putting away dishes and we couldn’t stop eating them!
The pie turned out great.. soo good with vanilla ice cream… thanks Dan!
So yes, I think it was a very successful supper. I didn’t even realize that my two cousins love ham.. hmm.. its a good thing thats what I made!
I just have such a hard time with my Aunt, because of the way she brought up her kids, they are very spoiled. And they are terrified of dogs, which is weird because they used to have a huge dog that loved to lick and bark.. and if their mom didn’t encourage them to be scared of the dog I’m sure they would be fine… Kato is after all just a puppy.
