When I was a boy, my father had a few meals that he really liked. And since he was very often the cook in our house, we got to eat his favorites quite often. On of them was thick sliced ham steak. It became one of my favorites, too.

Sometimes I look in the meat section of groceries for a ham steak. Usually, though, I find nothing or I find thin sliced "breakfast" ham. For many years, I thought it had gone the way of lamb chops -- another food that seems never to be in our groceries in San Diego.

I was out today to get food for dinner and there it was. The most beautiful, bone-in thick cut ham steak. I could not resist. So, tonight, I made mashed yams (cinnimon and butter), sauted onion and chunked mushrooms and that beautiful ham.

I was transported to my youth. I was exactly like I remember. Stacey was also thrilled. Scarlett has become on of the ham steak fans. And, the darling 3.5 year-old even cut her own meat.

Happy am I.
