A simple quasi Christmas dinner
Pictured is the 99/lb butt portion ham that I got at Shoprite yesterday-too good of a deal not to take advantage of it. It is now studded with cloves and baking off. In a while, I will attach sliced pineapple to it, and brush on a glaze of pineapple juice, brown sugar and spicy brown mustard. Sides will be mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts, corn (that is what is in the bag to the right). Easy-peasy. Our holiday celebration really was last night, the twins are with Dad until tomorrow bfst, older 2 kidlets may/not come home for supper. Regardless, I'll have a nice dinner and plenty of ham to put in the freezer for upcoming months when I am recuperating.
A pump bottle of a paraffin based hand cream, 3 bottles of BBW pump soap with moisturizing shea butter, a bag with assorted foodie items in it: gingerbread/cookie mix, peppermint crushed up sprinkles, a box of spice tea, a tin of cocoa mix; a new pair of driving gloves, a $50 check, which I will apply towards my Weather Tech mats for my car.
