Read it in school, and like all books you read in English Literature classes, the tutor manages to suck all the life out of it. It is only in the last five years that I have gone to see it performed live, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Well, I made a ham today, turned out pretty good so I thought I'd share it. The glaze contains freshly squeezed orange juice from mom's garden, some Coleman's mustard, brown sugar, and honey. The ham was also studded with cloves, but I think I'm going to skip the cloves next year...

The last few weeks have been far too frenetic..we had a very busy time leading up to Christmas at the shop..extra hours every night, stocking shelves, double deliveries, gift baskets, charcuterie trays, cutting prime rib roasts, smoking pork loins, a few catered dinners, 148 tourtiere, .then, we've been hit with the dreaded covid restrictions so a few of the family members cancelled on xmas plans we hadn't even made yet..the kids came xmas eve and we had a lot of snacking but the place was a mess and people basically gathered around the kitchen island and scarfed it all down as it came from the range..it was a feeding frenzy...What? No food pics? Not even a menu? I gotta believe you and yours ate very well today.
We watched Beverly hillbillies as well, ya know.It's Christmas morning in Houston. My sister is going to pick up our parents in about an hour. I'm fixin' to start cooking*. a ten-pound glazed ham is the main attraction.
* Fixin' is Texan for "about to," so I am about to start cooking.
