Happy Easter! and what is roast gammon? :D
Gammon is a specific type of ham that’s been cured and/or smoked in the same way bacon is. I slow-ish roasted it and then set it aside while the veggies roasted, and I used some of the grease from the gammon on the veggies.
The meat came off the bone stupid easy - I literally just had to use my fingers. So I wrapped the bone up in some foil and stuck it in the fridge - I’m thinking I can use it to flavor some sort of soup/stew thing later in the week. I have plenty of veggies left over from what I bought for today, so I really just have to decide what I want to make.
Oh yeah, and I went vaguely Italian-style with my spicing. Garlic salt, thyme, and sage. On everything. Meat and veg.
Even L, who doesn’t like a lot of stuff (she’s my pickiest), only complained about the sprouts. I was kind of expecting that anyway, so I just let that one roll off my back. I got her to eat potatoes without having to convince her, so that’s my Easter miracle for the day. lol
The kids were totally fine with forgoing eggs this year (and eggs here are just cheap-ass chocolate in the shape of an oversized egg; overpriced and overestimated, really) in favor of less expensive but just-as-good-if-not-better sweets. Just regular bags of sweets like Tangfastics and Gold-Bears and Kit-Kats. For what I could maybe spend getting 2 eggs I got enough sweets for all of us - including myself - to have a nice amount. Not too little, not too much.
I wish I’d thought of this ahead of time (I literally only thought of it last week), I could have slowly stockpiled quite a bit. £1 here, 50p there.
I think I might do something similar for Halloween. Trick-or-treating isn’t really a thing here, but maybe we can have a scary movie night with sweets & stuff. If they’re even here, that is. (There might be some sort of Halloween disco at school, or the community center might have some sort of Halloween-themed thing on; I don’t know, but it’s happened in Hendon, so it could happen here too.)
We’re having roast gammon with roast vegetables, stuffing, and gravy. I slow-ish roasted the gammon, and from what I’ve picked at… damn, I’m good. lol
Now if I could only get these three to stop fighting with each other.…
