holy ham, batman!

I picked up my ham at Froehlich’s yesterday. It weighed in at a whopping 26 pounds! I planned on cooking it last night, but didn’t account for the size. So, I was up till after midnight carving (and eating–yum!) ham. Needless to say, I’m tired today. At least it’s Friday and I can sleep in tomorrow. I’m dropping off my parent’s half after work, but I have a feeling we’ll be freezing a good portion of our ham.

The bacon wasn’t ready, though. 🙁 They had a problem with their smokehouse so they won’t be able to do it until next week. So much for a bacon brunch on Sunday. I guess we’ll have ham instead. It’s not like we’re going to run out by then.

Jacob was absolutely fascinated with the picture of the fat guy that I posted the other day. On his way to daycare the next day he told me, “Tommy* eats a lot of candy, but he’s just a little fat–he can still walk.” [* the names have been changed to protect the overweight] When I picked him up from daycare that same day, he proceeded to tell me that he told all of his little friends about the picture of the fat guy that his mom showed him on the computer. I’m sure that went over well with the teachers.

And speaking of fattening items, the damned vending machine at work is out of cookies again (cookies are my breakfast staple), so now I’m forced to eat a Twix bar for breakfast. At least they have a cookie in them.
