We had perfect weather this past weekend for Easter. Blue skies, flowering trees and temperatures in the high 60’s/low 70’s. Can’t believe it’s March! I hope your weekend was enjoyable too.
If you are like me, you have a lot of leftover ham! Even though I sent some home with my guests, I still have plenty. Here are three links for leftover ham inspiration.
One that I want to do this week is make Cuban Sandwiches. My recipe of the week features one from Alton Brown.
Recipe of the Week
If you have never had a Cuban Sandwich, you will need to make these. It’s a great way to use up leftover ham. Here’s a recipe from Alton Brown with a slight variation. Instead of pork, he uses deli turkey. A true Cuban sandwich has both ham and pork.
In all honesty, I may just forgo the second meat and make these sandwiches with just the ham. The pickles, mustard and provolone cheese will add plenty of flavor.
I love hot sandwiches and they are so easy to make in my Cuisinart Griddler. You can also make them in a George Foreman Grill or in a cast iron skillet on the stove with a second cast iron skillet used as a press on top of the sandwich.
Top New Perennials for 2016
If you like to garden this link is for you. Better Homes & Gardens shared their Top New Perennials for 2016. I love the beautiful shade of this pink ‘Petite Jenny’.
Room of the Week
I love this bright white kitchen found on the South Shore Decorating Blog. This smaller kitchen island adds counter space and the bar stools can easily slide under the island to create a workspace. I’m also a big fan of the gold accents with the gray and white marble.

Head on over to 1010 Park Place to see my Luscious Lemon Desserts post. I don’t know about you but I prefer lemon over chocolate! It’s so refreshing.
