Growing up, I was very much in to traditions. Ask my mother. I would have a hissy fit if she even thought about making anything other than lasagna on Christmas Eve and we had to have her honeyed peas on Thanksgiving or the holiday just wouldn’t be complete.
Well, this year, I just couldn’t get in the Easter spirit since I couldn’t have the traditional Easter Ham since it’s on my no-no list. We talked about doing a turkey or lamb or some other alternative but when it boiled right down to it, I was having a hissy fit about not having ham so I decided to boycott the entire day.
Luckily, I wasn’t alone in the endeavor!
Dad, Huz, and I debated on what to do to boycott the traditions surrounding Easter and decided that the furthest thing off would naturally be eating out of the garbage can.
So there was chicken, ribs, brisket, corn on the cob, slaw, beans, fries, and corn muffins.
I loaded up a plate with chicken, corn, some slaw, and a corn muffin. All were fantastic.
The boys plates looked a little bit different.
Meat, meat, and more meat!
It was a great dinner and I wouldn’t have our hamless Easter any other way.
