I have the shopping for tomorrow's dinner done and once again, I've capitulated to the insane and purchased the ham, because according to Mr. Larger Than Life, no holiday meal is complete without one. I've received no fewer than 6 six calls from my son about the ham this week. MLTL was becoming very worried and now he's mad because I bought the ham and not him. There's just no pleasing this man. If I have to force feed him, that old goat better eat nothing but ham. The rest of us, just like last year, will indulge in the grape leaves.
Dinner should be done cooking today as I have, with the exception of the carrots and asparagus, designed a completely make ahead menu. This clears the decks for another Donkey Kong tournament on Sunday. Of course that means I'd better get busy in the kitchen right this minute. I have a lot of grape leaves to roll.
Right after that second cup of coffee.
Hope your holiday weekend is shaping up to be special, too.
