Easter dinner was supposed to be easy peasy, until I showed up at Honey Baked an hour after it closed at noon.
Panic and frustration hit hard. no doubt i went off on a rant about their poor business sense for closing early on the one day of the year people actually buy a ham.
After this got me nowhere, and no ham, i headed to Whole Foods for an organic pig with no glaze.
Who knew a glaze was so simple, and fatty (other than Julia Lake).
Just pour a bunch of syrup, honey, and brown sugar all over the ham and bake, then baste, then bake, etc.
It’s always nice to pair a late afternoon of cooking w/ some drinking and cheesing.
That morning i baked an almond creme tart w/ blueberries a la Valleybrink Road.
The table was thrown together by Zoe & Lauren. It kept evolving.
Thanks to Lauren Ross for being my drinking buddy, remembering to take photos, and bringing NOVA along.
Honey Baked, i still love you and always will.
