thoughts on eating in and dining out in the Delaware Valley

On the 8th day of Christmas blogging... I choose to write about my awesome Christmas dinner.
Clockwise from the giant bowl of: mashed potatoes, corned beef and cabbage, sauerkraut, fresh ham, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, deviled eggs, sweet potato puree. Ridiculous amounts of delicious food! Props to my mother for pulling off the fresh ham, which is challenging to make and tempting to overcook (she resisted!). She used Paula Deen's recipe, available at the Food Network site, http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/fresh-ham-recipe/index.html, and featuring soy sauce and spices. Fairly simple, fairly delicious.
