Or help with the weeding or harvesting... hmmm.
how convenient. too convenient.
I spent an hour in the hot sun, battling bugs and thorns and weeds to get these beauties-
Pretty sure it is all going to be worth it when I have a yummy
baked potato and green beans for dinner.
And some raspberries and ice cream for dessert.
Thanks Mom and Dad! I love you!

First step is to bake ham frozen, with skin on at a low heat (about 150 to 200 degrees) "all day". My ham wasn't frozen so I was a little worried about cooking it all day. Plus my oven would only go as low as 170 degrees. So I put it in the oven before leaving for church and it was "done" when I got home- 3 hours later.
Take out of oven- remove skin and fat.
Now comes the delicious part.
2 cups brown sugar
1 Tablespoon dry mustard
3 or 4 shakes of soy sauce
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup or less ketchup
(my ham was pretty small so I halved the glaze recipe)
I tried to baste it about every 5 minutes. The glaze becomes very liquidy and easy to spoon over the ham.
I made this to take to my sisters for dinner. So I just put it in a container, poured over the glaze- it travelled perfectly.
Just before eating we sliced it, poured some glaze over the slices and dug in. Pretty sure my brother-in-law ate half of it.
My sister also made a plain ham (that was HUGE) so there were lots leftover. I took a few pieces, put them in my container with some glaze and enjoyed it the next day.
Try it. You will love it.

Here is what we made-
Pizza Sandwiches. Pretty tasty. Put sauce, cheese and desired toppings (we enjoyed ham and pineapple) on a piece of bread. Top with another piece of bread... and enjoy.
Have you seen that infomercial for the GT Express 101? She makes something called Stuffed Soup so we decided to give it a try too. You mix stuffing, chicken and cream of chicken soup. It was pretty messy as you can see... But it was tasty.
We were pretty good at making breakfast... We made eggs which were probably my favorite. I don't know that I will make eggs in a frying pan ever again.
This is when we made eggs the first time. The next few times we added cheese and ham. Mmmmm.
We also made pancakes. Rachel loves sausages so we added them to her side.
Here is the final product... So yummy. Not sure if I will ever make pancakes in a frying pan ever again either.Here is Rachel enjoying the goods.
