Friday Friend Recipe #106 -- Ham Roll Ups or Lutheran Sushi

My Friday Friend Cookbook Countdown #106!

Tracy's Ham Roll-Ups or  Lutheran Sushi
and you know all the whys and wherefores of this countdown, right? Homemade cookbook, friends contributed, Handyman said I couldn't/wouldn't do it, I'll show him, yadda yadda yadda....

Believe it or not---Ham Roll ups are hard to photograph, but it's one of the easiest appetizers ever and it is always very  popular,
The nickname Lutheran Sushi makes me laugh---but when you think about it--I guess you could say it really is!

Ham Roll Ups (or Lutheran Sushi)
Tracy White

Spread  thick sliced ham lunchmeat with cream cheese.
Place a pickle sliced length-wise. Roll up and slice.

(Hmmmm... I guess I didn't read the fine print.  I just stuck a whole pickle in there. And to top it off--I can't remember if I used a sweet or a dill pickle.  It looks like a sweet pickle, doesn't it?  I guess you can use what you like)

I have to give you a little bit more background about the Friday Friends, as this is Tracy's first recipe in the cookbook that I've done.
When I first began the forum there were a core 30 who answered my questions each time and played along almost every day (I'd ask a question of the day),  there were another 10 who were close, but rarely answered.  I would always try adding people--some joined in over the years, some did not.
Tracy was one of the ones I added late and she rarely answered the daily questions BUT she did contribute to the FF cookbook.

My Tracy story?
She's one of the only people in the world --and there are just a handful-- who has heard me sing.
Every day I would stand in front of her and sing---and she'd join in.
Yep---In a 3 hour period each morning 5 days a week,  I would just begin singing in front of her.

In front of her and 12 little 3-4 year olds.

We taught pre-school together at Zion Lutheran Pre-School for a few years---about 15 years ago.
So, it is only fitting that she turned in a "Lutheran" appetizer.

I found this photo of Traci and I thought it was cute. I know she positioned herself so that the butterfly fit 'correctly'.  I like to think of her flying and flitting like a butterfly.
She passed away last year and she is missed.
She has a handful more recipes in the FF cookbook, so you'll be seeing her again. 

It was fun to sing with her in the mornings.

I've never seen those ham roll ups. The picture of Traci is very fitting.
