Gosh, babies sure ruin everything. I had grand plans to tell you all about the maniac last week we’ve endured, that included signing a lease on a new apartment – right next door to us, the chest freezer that decided it was going to take an epic dive yesterday that meant I was moving 100 pounds of meat from the freezer to the coolers, running to the store for a national security alarm raising amount of dry ice to keep it frozen, trying to find a repair place open on a Sunday (all before coffee, I might add), and added to the fact that Ben was sick, projectile vomming no less, and I trying to keep something in side his stomach, while he’s convinced that my three day old sandwich tucked in the fridge was the culprit behind it all.
So, I was going to tell you all about those things. But then I woke up this morning to the Duchess of Cambridge being knocked up with baby number two and well, I am having a pre-coffee fan girl freak out! Lucky you.
I also have a Sticky Peach Chipotle Glazed Ham to wax poetic about, too. So, stick with me at least for that!
With an abnormally high attachment to all things royal – and with my maiden last name being Pence, I am pretty much guaranteed to be losing my ish to anything royal. I probably shouldn’t admit to the Twitter list I look over everything morning of all the royal twitter accounts and royal reporting sites. And I probably shouldn’t admit that I had a countdown to the Royal wedding here on the blog back in 2011, and that I took the day of the royal wedding off work as a personal holiday to watch it live.
Then there was me nearly getting in a row at work when Prince George was born and I had the baby reveal walk about streaming on my work computer so I could get a first look at the new future monarch. Don’t ever ask me, “Gosh, why do you care?! *eye roll* It’s not like you’re British…”. Ahhh, helllll nah.
There are things in life you don’t ask questions about – including asking a woman if she’s pregnant, asking your husband “Does my butt look big in this?”, and asking anyone “Why do you care about the royal family?”
Because I like tradition, and pomp, and circumstance, and history. And well, BABIES!!
So while babies ruin everything – my ovaries can’t help but cheer.
If cute babies make your ovaries explode, this sticky peach chipotle glazed ham will make you tastebuds explode, too! I’m a firm believer in sustainable eating, and sourcing meat that has been sustainably and compassionately raised, in supporting farmers and producers that take that extra mile to produce quality food. Fork in the Road is a company I was introduced to a few months ago while I was in California, and having a chance to talk to them about their mission to work with family farmers and ranchers that have equal investment in their land and what they produce is something I have to support.
Take a look at their site and learn more about their mission to produce quality meats, protect the environment, and create a better path to nutritious food for all.
Sticky Peach Chipotle Glazed Ham
Peach Chipotle Glaze::
1 cup Peach Puree, or 3/4 cup Peach Preserves
1 Tbsp Chipotle Sauce (Like Tabasco Chipotle)
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4-1/2 tsp Pepper, to your liking
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
2 pound Smoked Cured Ham
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a sauce pan, whisk together all ingredients and bring to a simmer. Whisk together under a simmer until the sauce is thickened and syrupy.
Line a baking dish with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick spray. Place the ham, flat side down, into the baking dish and pour enough of the glaze over the ham to coat it. Using a spoon or a basting brush, distribute the glaze over the ham. Reserve additional glaze for coating the ham through the cooking process.
Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. Remove from the oven and allow to rest tented under foil for about 5 minutes before slicing and serving. Serve with additional sticky glaze if there is any left over.
*Fine Print* I was not compensated for this post by Fork in the Road, they did provide me with some products to try out in my own home for fun. Opinions are entirely my own.
