Ham, Potatoes, and Asparagus
I hadn't planned on posting tonight, but I just had to share our fabulous, super easy dinner that we had tonight. I baked a ham last week when my family was over for Christmas. There was plenty of leftovers and I used a bit more tonight. I took a hunk of the ham and cubed it. For the four of us, I had six small red potatoes and cut them into cubes as well. I was wandering the veggie section of Harris Teeter, thinking broccoli but they didn't look very good and I saw the asparagus. We love asparagus here! Perfect. Grabbed a bunch of asparagus. After they were washed and the woody ends broken off, I cut them in half. Put the ham, potatoes, and asparagus onto a rimmed baking sheet, toss with a bit of olive oil and pepper. Cook at 425* for about 25 minutes. You want the potatoes to get soft, but you don't want the asparagus to get too overdone. I served it with pumpernickel bread and it was all delicious.
