Christmas - Food Related

Cornbread... Made this yesterday... The mix came in a gift

Here are more goodies from the gift box - beans, and salsa mixes.

What a cool present my sister Christy sent! She send us a gift box from the Woman's
Bean Project... On Christmas Day I cooked a ham (we usually have one of our super tasty
prime ribs, but I am saving ours for tonight)... Well, ham seems to be one of those things
that never ends! I swear it multiplies... For close to a week we have been eating ham, ham & beans, grilled ham & cheese sandwiches, and last night we had egg mc muffins (ham, cheese, fried eggs on an English muffin).... for lunch today I think we will have a big chef salad...

Check out those cool lemons... Direct from California. My friend Michele, who moved here about a year ago (our kids are in the same classroom) from CA and she brought these to us recently!

A Sexton Christmas is not complete without AnnaBelle Compton Sexton's homemade Eggnog!

A tasty beverage... It calls for:
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 C Golden Rum (Dick's Grandma used 2 C Bourbon)
  • 1 qt light cream (not to be found in stores... I use 1/2 and 1/2)
  • nutmeg
Beat eggs
Add sugar and salt, beat
Stir in alcohol
Chill for 3 hours
add nutmeg on top of poured drinks

So, I double this recipe and have non-alcohol batch and one with alcohol. It is not thick.. Nice and light!

Wow! You've really got it going on. Glad you took the time to update on all the Ham Happenings. ;)

How on earth did you luck up to have a friend move up to your area by the way? That's so neat!!!
