easter sunday

We had a really lovely Easter. We went to my brother-in-law's house. The parent-in-laws were there plus assorted other in-laws on his side. 19 people in all, lots of kids, great conversation, good food.

It was so much fun to watch the kids running around looking for their eggs. Part of the hilarity was trying to keep the dogs from bowling over kids and stepping on eggs while they were excitedly racing around with the kids.

I made my crockpot ham roast which was a big hit. Everyone loves it everytime I make it.

1 precooked spiral ham
12 oz apricot jam
1/2 C. raisins
2 T. vinegar
1/4 C. brown sugar
2 T. flour

Mix ingredients below ham together and pour over ham. Cook on low 4 hours, slice and serve. When the ham is cooked you can remove it from the crockpot and make a gravy by thickening with cornstarch and cooking the sauce on high for 15 minutes.

The leftovers, if there are any, make a great ham sandwich.

Looks like a tasty dish, and simple to make. I'll save this for future reference the next time I need to make a crockpot dish. Right now, we don't use it very much because we have very little counter space in the kitchen in our dinky apartment.
