Today is Thanksgiving so that meant I had three choices. Go to see my family, not doing anything, or make my own dinner. I choose to make my own dinner and I am so happy that I did. I am sitting here with my whiskey and Coke with a belly full of food I made myself and I am so damned happy. And thankful. There is that.
I made my ham that is coated with Coke and brown sugar. This is an automatic for me. If I am making a big dinner this has to be a part of it. No crazy stuff involved. Just the sugar and soda being basted on the ham as it cooks. And it is massive. Probably the biggest I've ever made at around 12 pounds. Also included is my stuffing which I am always happy to make. I used the perfect amount of sage for it. Its enough for about six people but its all mine. Mine!
I usually make a cheesecake but this time I decided to make homemade cranberry sauce for the first time. So easy! Just check out Thug Kitchen's recipe. Cam sent it to me a few weeks ago and I was excited to try it out. I added a tiny bit more brown sugar because real cranberries are mad tart. I also made a lemon cake with whipped cheesecake frosting. Its safe to say that I will be eating ham for the next week and a half or so. Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving.
