it was my first christmas to be in charge of planning and preparing dinner. i started dreaming up ideas about a month ago (i wanted to be super prepared of course). i had grand ideas of cooking lamb or prime rib.....but after debate and looking at the dollar signs i decided to go with a ham and lots of homemade sides instead. i'll save the lamb for next year!!! So here goes:
 my honey glazed ham from target...my fav part actually so easy and delicious and i bought for 10 even though it was just us four so i could have tons of leftovers and make ham and navy bean soup (which is cooking right now!!!)
 the spread: duchess potatoes, sautéed garlic mushrooms, homemade rolls, corn bake, and not pictured mixed veggies(from a bag. frozen. gasp.). two things to note in this picture: i was way too hungry to take pictures before we ate and there is the nice bottle of tums right in the middle.
 Duchess Potatoes from Pioneer Woman
 30 minute homemade rolls by your home based mom
these are TO DIE FOR. i will never used store bought again
i hope everyone had a delicious christmas as well!!!! the craziness of work and school has sortof slowed a little so i am hoping to get back to posting about running and cooking again!!!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
