It seems all my disasters involve my mom somehow.. lol

One year we were taking the turkey out of the oven and somehow it flopped onto the floor. We just stared at each other, grabbed it off the floor and threw it back in the pan. I've never told anyone..until now.  Shocked But no one eats the skin anyway, right?! Smiley

Another year I opened a cabinet and a stack of bowls came flying out, hit my dear grandma right in the nose, and then shattered...into the  stuffing my mom was making. We didn't have a stuffed bird that year and my grandma suffered through dinner with a purple lump on her nose. Fortunately my grandma had a wonderful sense of humor and found the whole thing rather hilarious.

And the worst was when my mom was taking the yams out of the oven and spilled all that brown-sugary marshmallow goo all over her arm. That one wasn't funny and yams aren't allowed at the table anymore. Smiley

I can't think of a really good one but every thanksgiving we have turkey and ham. Usually we can squeeze both into the oven and it all comes out delicious. However this thanksgiving we had guests over. So we got a 16 lb turkey along with a ham and we discovered that the ham didn't fit in the oven when the turkey was in! Therefore we had to chop the ham up into pieces and cook it in a slow cooker.. it didn't taste that great I would have to say. boiled ham vs. baked ham. =(

Next time you have to cook the ham in the crock pot, don't fill it the whole way with water, just put an inch or two.  We always add a can of ginger ale to take out the saltiness, and poke cloves in the ham with the pineapple rings and it tastes just as good in the slow cooker as it does in the oven Smiley

I love ham at the holidays but one year when we used to travel and go to a few parties for the Christmas, every single house had ham.  It didn't help that I was pregnant that year too.  I think it was maybe the 5th or 6th ham by the time we got to my MILs and I could not eat any more.  She still thinks I don't like it.
