Our Last Christmas Ham
Fred and I decided that this year will be our last year of me making a ham for the holidays. Now, there may come a time in the future when the girls have families, when I will change that. We think that we need to stay away from ham and bacon. I do not think we are fully ready to give up bacon all together. I will make it something special for breakfasts once in a while. Both of us think turkey bacon is gross and a bad substitute for the real thing. But that is just our opinion.
I have a nice big smoked ham. I will do the whole she-bang to it. Cloves, brown sugar coating, pineapple slices and chunks and even a stray cherry or two. It will be the best clogged artery you ever did see.
