Easter was ok. I was a little disappointed in a couple areas, but our guests were extremely happy. It was a beautiful day eventhough storms were predeicted. The ham was especialy nice. I roasted 5 whole hams on the bone which we carved in the kitchen and served with grilled peaches and peach beautiful sauce, 12 whole prime ribs, 100 pounds of mashed potatoes, 100 pounds of sweet potatoes, 80 pounds of asparagus. Vegetables and dip, cheese, and marinated olives were set at each table, along with our homemade breads-strawberry, white, and special for the hot cross buns. Service was family style, and desserts were strawberry shortcake and Easter egg nest fudge brownies. People loved the sweet potatoes-they are Mrs. Gallagher's favorite recipe. It was very much like an old farm house dinner which I think is perfect for holidays.
