Solo Dolo Bomb Ass Thanksgiving Dinner

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.

Lazy Fat Blogger

I have been such a bum the last month or so and not posting when I went somewhere to eat. On Halloween hanging out with my awesome cousin JP we headed to Continental Kitchen and some some bacon burgers and fries. Great as always. I headed to Penguin's with Cam after a shopping adventure because we hadn't been there in a minute. Love that place. With Koko we went to Mel's on Hollywood in between movies at the AFI film festival. Good food. Last week me and my cousin Mala went to Plan Check on Fairfax after shopping. We got a burger and their amazing fried chicken. She said hers had too much fat but it was still super tasty. Cool ass waiter, too.
