I was in the mood to make a nice dinner again. Something that I didn’t have for a very long time was in a oven grilled ham. So I bought a very nice ham (“beenham” it is called in Dutch). For all of the day the ham was resting in a marinade of olive oil, mustard, honey and a little whiskey (Not a single malt! Just a nice blended one).
I grilled the ham for 40 minutes on 200 degrees and after that an hour on 90 degrees.
To the ham I baked some chestnut mushrooms with some bacon and unions.
The potatoes were cut in pieces but with peel. They have been laying for at least 4 hours in a marinade of olive oil, rosemary and garlic (and of course some pepper and salt). They were baked shortly in rice oil on a high fire.
The salad was, I admit, ready bought, It contains garden peas, corn and paprika. Add a little mayonnaise, curry and pepper to it and it is delicious.
A nice dish of all kind olives was served to it all (for the olives a with garlic enriched olive oil was used).
On advice of Marion we had a very nice Bordeaux served with the ham.
Hmmm…. the parsley on the dish with ham is a bit overdone. Could have been a bit less :)
Tomorrow I plan to make dinner based on fish… :)
