Jane: Easter Dinner

Here's our Easter dinner table. Note Grandma's crocheted table cloth. The boys figured out there are 320 medallions in it!

Here's our menu, with recipes.

Appleton spiral sliced ham (Appleton hams are very good--get them at Aldi)
Corn Casserole
Asparagus with lime and garlic
rye bread
lime chiffon pie

Corn Casserole (here it is, Gabi!)
1 can corn
1 can cream-style corn
2 Tbsp. melted butter
8 oz. sour cream
1 box Jiffy corn muffin mix
2 eggs

Mix thoroughly. Pour into 8x10 glass pan or casserole dish. Bake 50 minutes at 350.

Asparagus with lime/garlic (got this idea from the Thai restaurant at Cedar/Lee)
Slice one large garlic clove into 2 Tbsp. lime juice. Steam asparagus. Pour marinade over and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes before serving.

Lime Chiffon Pie
Mix together 8 oz. can sweetened condensed milk and 6 oz. can thawed limeade concentrate. Add 2 drops green food coloring (optional). Fold in 8 oz. Cool whip. Pile into graham cracker crust. Serves 8. (Cut slices small: it's very sweet!)
