There are several things I do that bring me peace, and a feeling of comfort. Cooking, preferably for my family, is the one I adore the most. It’s the cooking that weaves the thread that ties my home to my own childhood, and provides my own children with memories that they will carry in their own hearts. The smells, the laughter, the fighting, the stories and the food all work together to make those memories incredible.
I spend the day before a big holiday pushing my cart through the grocery with an incredible sense of anticipation. I wander through the produce sections, the bakery, the cheese department and then ultimately end up searching for THE ham. The one I know will be the center of our celebration, but will also provide some yummy, yummy leftover choices for the days to come. It always, always revolves around the ham.
I found an amazing ham this year from Dietz & Watson, it's the Dietz & Watson Nitrate Free, Uncured, All-Natural Dinner Ham. This new All Natural Uncured Classic Dinner Ham offers delicious off-the-bone flavor without the nitrates. This ham delicacy is uncured, prepared with Sea Salt.
I knew that Bitchy, my nutrition major and expert on ALL that is healthy, would approve. I’m always looking for ways to remind her that I am, indeed, trying stay healthy and extend my life. She insists that she wants me around for a long, long time, and takes every opportunity to tell me that good food choices AND exercise will do that for me. And while I tell her to keep her knowledge to herself, there are times when I like to show off my own nutritional discoveries. This ham was one of them.
And so this year as we sit around the table and making our own incredible memories, I’ll feel just a bit better knowing that her advice and my discoveries at Sprouts Farmers Market will ensure that we have many more memories on the horizon.
My daughter and her mother thank you, Dietz & Watson.
