And Then I Got All Cocky

And Then I Got All Cocky...
 
Anyone who knows me knows that I love to cook and that I am pretty good at it (even if I do say so myself).  There have been a lot of changes in our family traditions with each holiday that has passed since my dad died one year ago.  For example, on Thanksgiving, I decided instead of going to dinner at my parents house, like we always used to do, that I would have my mom over to my house and cook a turkey.  It was the first time I cooked a turkey on my own and it turned out delicious!  
With Easter just around the corner, and my grandmother here from out of town for a visit, my mom was very stressed out trying to get everything spruced up and planning out Easter dinner.  So, tonight I told her not to worry, that we could do Easter dinner at my house.  I could handle everything.  Since I cooked a turkey, apparently now I think I can cook anything.  Um, I have no idea how to cook a ham!  What am I getting myself into?!

Hey, just boil a dozen eggs. Get the ham at the deli. That's how I do it.

Cute post, made me smile. You're a good daughter! If you did great with the turkey, you'll do fine with the ham, it's hard to mess it up, just don't overcook it! Happy Easter, have a beautiful day!
