A VERY HAPPY 10th BIRTHDAY TO MY LIL PRINCESS! We hope you had a great New Years holiday and are as excited for the coming year as we are !I'm still in shock that my lil blog Princess is now "double digits " , how did that happen ??? I mean it seems just like yesterday that she was sitting on my lap and we were just starting this blog !!
Princess and I ,woke New Years Day and had breakfast "tacos" with my Mom , Step Dad, and Mr. Chuck in celebration of the Princesses special day ....followed by CFB (Cake for Breakfast... an oreo ice cream sandwich cake made by Mommy ) just as her highness requested . lol After breakfast and showers we headed out to do a lil shopping . The Princess had gift cards from Christmas burning holes in her royal pockets . First stop BUILD A BEAR !! She found a BAB Lion to fall in love with and dressed it in all the Birthday finest .O is that place fun ...but what a money pit. lol I do however wish I had a machine to stuff creations like they have !! We visited a few other stores and did a lil clothing shopping , then had dinner at Red Robin (one of her faves and free because she is a member of their royalty club ), and made a quick stop at Krispy Kreme for a warm glazed doughnut for dessert , because the light was on lol ... before heading home.

Today my projects are: cooking a 10 lb ham , Mr. Chuck gave us(purchased at $8 ... half off after Christmas) , a lil housework and sewing a stack of burp cloths for the Mommy of Princesses bff... Ms. Z as she's due to have a baby girl in 4 weeks .
I always stud my ham with whole cloves and add apple cider to the pan , and cover with foil then 30 mins before it's finished cooking I glaze it with an apple cider glaze... as I find that it makes a very flavorful , moist ham . How do you like to prepare your hams? Any special tips and tricks? I am including my ham glaze , and ice cream sandwich cake recipes for your use , you can find them by clicking the recipe tab at the top of the page . Thanks for visiting I must go... I hear the sewing machine calling my name ...Wishing each of you a wonderful day and until we meet again ...Ill always be ...just a lil raggedy...hugs .
