Crockpot Easter Ham

It's going to be a unique Easter this year but it will be memorable nonetheless! This year it will be a small dinner for my husband, son and me but we'll be connected with our family as we enjoy celebrating virtually. I'll be making a ham with a few side dishes to pair them with, which will serve us well for the days to follow!

I've been relying a lot on my crockpot and electric pressure cooker for meals since I've been working remotely. Surprisingly, my time is much more limited despite working remotely at home since it's been much busier trying to conduct business virtually as opposed to in person.

However I am looking forward to taking a break this weekend to relax with my family and enjoy the simple things of just being present. From our home to yours, we wish you and your loved ones a blessed and delicious Easter holiday!
