To prepare this colorful, zesty oven meal, I "shop" in my backyard for the fresh garden vegetables and oranges (we have our own tree!) that spark the ham's hearty flavor. It's my family's favorite main dish.

"Mom got her appetite back when she tried this cool and crunch asparagus that gets a flavor boost from soy sauce. It's a nice accompaniment to chicken, roast beef or ham."
