You have that spiral ham, and now you have to think about Easter sides and Easter desserts.
Here are some ideas to help make Easter Dinner Special.
Refresh with White Sangria or Strawberry Sangria with Lime and Basil
Try pasta as a side dish. This classic Genovese basil, potato and green bean spaghetti works so well with ham.
