Pause. Read. Process.

It’s true.

Dinner ninja secret- No bone, pre-cooked ham is a life saver. #HoneyBakedEaster #sponsored

Buy anyways… I bet you are wondering about my dinner ninja secret. Hook a girl up with a drumroll and I will tell you all about it.


When I throw an elaborate party, entertain a large group of people, or just don’t have the time to prepare something worthy enough to share the table with my party decorations, I cheat. OK, maybe cheat is the wrong word. How about… ummm… I take a shortcut? Shortcuts seem to be more widely accepted in mainstream blogging. Even if the act of cheating is a shortcut…

Just sayin’.

So, I headed out to the Flint HoneyBaked Ham location because I needed real food in my belly after the mess of nonsense I consumed during Michael’s birthday party. It was bad. Like, I look pregnant bad. Even though I wasn’t heading out there with an event like Easter dinner in mind, I was overwhelmed with 4 deadlines mushed in between 2 birthday parties, and I was able to get in and out in under 10 minutes. Yes!

I guess what I’m trying to say is that it is also okay to cheat when life gets all sorts of crazy.

Dinner ninja secret- Impress your guests with a coconut cake that leaves them wondering how much time you spent in the kitchen. #HoneyBakedEaster #sponsored

I picked up ham, mashed potatoes (to die for!), green beans, and a cake for less than $75, out the door. Could we have gotten by without the cake? You betcha. Except… Michael was all sad panda because I didn’t make him a birthday cake, and who hosts Easter dinner without dessert? Just. No!

Michael sure isn’t complaining with this week’s shortcut because he knows he would have dined on leftover party food, like chips and Hot Pockets, all week. It took a while but we sort of know how to handle the each other when one of us in the middle of a deadline.

And now you know how to become a dinner ninja. You’re welcome.
