At Christmastime, I was gifted with a lovely box of goodies that included a spiral ham. I am the only one in the family who likes ham so it was not served for Christmas dinner.
I decided to have a Christmas dinner for my sisters-in-law and a friend. I finally got around to it last Thursday. Yes, it was May 3. Pitiful.
I made a cherry glaze for the ham. It just sounded so good at Pinterest. It will go down in history as a major fail.
What was I thinking?!
After not cooking much of anything for two years, it was an ambitious dinner. My menu: ham, baked potatoes, Olive Garden style salad, green bean casserole, creamed corn, Parker House rolls, and Refrigerator Sheet cake with ice cream.
Nothing went quite as planned. The ham was dry, the baked potatoes were steamed, the rolls did not rise properly, and the ice cream was soup. That's right. Soup!
Apparently, the compressor on my fridge gave up the ghost.
Now, instead of a lovely almond color Amana with a bottom freezer, I have an old-lady white Frigidaire with an everyday top freezer. I couldn't justify having anything more.
