On night three of the “while dad’s away” meal plan, dinner was based on another kid favorite – ham steak.
Glazed with honey mustard and broiled for a few minutes, ham steak is always a hit. The boys also liked the sides: pineapple chunks and some scary orange Jo-Jo potatoes leftover from a deli stop. The “adult” side of dinner was asparagus roasted with a bit of olive oil, then drizzled afterwards with orange zest and a tablespoon or so of freshly squeezed juice from the same navel orange. I made sure the boys left room on their plate for a few stalks if for no other reason than to color the plate beyond pink, yellow and orange.
