My family would rather chew rusty nails with crushed glass than eat that.

I love scalloped potatoes. Even boxed. I'd love a good recipe for them, I've never tried cooking them from scratch.. My mom used to make them and honestly I don't remember if she used boxed or not, but I'd like to try it. I'm generally really good at potatoes.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I was born with two hams.

Honeybaked Ham like Chas suggested is consistently good. But so is Costco's Kirkland Signature spiral cut ham. And I'd rather pay $20 for a ham instead of $50.

RE: Need some help with buying a ham
Yeah I don't know if I can spring for Honeybaked. Confused And I don't belong to Costco, so that's not an option.

I was wondering what would be better - what cut, bone in or not, that kind of thing.

Why no join? There are plenty in your area and it costs $40/year. You almost save that on the ham alone.

I think ham is the cut. No? From my gluttonous culinary experience it's either a spiral cut with bone or without or a country ham. I like country hams best but they require a lot of soaking to leach out the salt and I'm the only one who seems to like them.

Wait. Is ham the traditional Christmas dinner in the US?

Ham or turkey. My wife is Italian so sometimes we have home made spaghetti. It's not from a jar. It takes 3 days for the meatballs and sauce to cook.

Ahhh cool. Thanks. That sounds like some sloooow cooked meatballs and sauce. Or is it because is makes a stock and add to it over time? Three days sounds quite extreme.

She cooks it slow and the tomatoes start out raw. It takes a while to cook the tomatoes down. I know it sounds like a long time but the sauce is unreal. It is an old family recipe.
