I don’t know about you but for me it’s hard to be thankful for Thanksgiving each year when you have a house-full of friends and family coming and an endless amount of cooking to do! I am not the best cook but I am a decent one. Even with having a little experience in the kitchen, I am still bound to screw something up. I have a house for of three children, two dogs and an adorable husband to keep me distracted from what’s going on in the kitchen.
When I was contact by HoneyBaked Ham to trust them to take all the stress out of my Thanksgiving, of course I was more than thankful! This year we planned a Friendsgiving and while we are all amazing moms, none of us are chefs.
So, my two year old and I ran to the HoneyBaked Ham Store in Colerain (Cincinnati, Ohio) after a fun play date with some friends and before our midday nap. We spent less than 7 minutes inside the store. We were waited on immediately, even though there were several people in the store, all of whom were being helped already. I let them know that we had a gathering with about 20 people, they helped me pick the size ham and turkey. So, we walked out with:
Whole Sliced and Glazed Turkey Breast;
8 lb. Half Ham;
Sweet Potato Souffle;
Green Bean Casserole;
Turkey Gravy; and
As I stated earlier, we expected 20 people for our Friendsgiving. Since there were going to be so many children very little cleaning was done and even less cooking. I love the fact that I only had to pop the Ham and Turkey in the oven to heat and then serve. There was no basting, waking at the crack of Dawn and most importantly, there was no stress! The cost of the food was $122 but I used coupons and brought that down to $112. That’s $112 to feed 20 people (and an eight month old baby).
Of course the main dishes were the Turkey and Ham. Everyone loved both and there was so much left over that three families took some home to have for later. I didn’t want to get to close to the Turkey at the end of the night since one mom already called dibs and she might have stabbed me with a fork if I got to close (disclosure: Confessions of a Messy Mama and HoneyBaked Ham do not condone stabbing anyone during any meal…or after…or before – am I covered?).
