Another Day to fight the head cold

Half Ham

Sometimes the desires of your heaet comes true when you least expect it . I've been wanting a nice ham for awhile and I think I'm really spoiled because I'm so used to finding a sale..and the prices on some of the Ham's were rediculaous..so I waited..well to my good fortune I walked into Lowes and on the last day of the sale I was albe to get a beautiful ham ..one for now and one for the freezer later : o)..Well here's a picture of that Ham cut in half and slices for sandwiches on a nice roll :o)

Both sandwices are the same size, but taking at an angle looks different..I made some Sun Tea and we had that with it on our break from yard work yesterday.
The Ham was baked with my own little concoction..Lemon Peel, brown sugar mixed with the water the ham gave off the first hour.(they all have water added most times) ..then I used it with my concoction mix to baste   often). it's delicious , I think I'll have to put the other half cooked in the freezer ...we are making gluttons of ourselves.
I'll have to pick those mustard greens today, feel good or not.

Robin, I'm hoping this cold will leave faster than it got here :o) There is so much that needs to be done and the weather has been so beautiful for the last few days..Rain is in sight so I'd better be careful..btw the ham is as good as it looks.. :o)

Ohiofarmgirl, get a lot of rest!!! Cecil had a burst of energy today and was digging and planting like a wild man..So I had to do my bit to keep up :o)...I had to move some of the Mustards out of the way ..for carrots to be planted..and I had to cook them and make cornbread and ...well, you know one thing after another I forgot what rest was today:o}
