A word of advice about ham
Just in case someone ever sends you a ham as a gift, and you don't plan to eat it right away, freeze it. If there is no indication whatsoever as to how to store the ham, don't assume that it is preserved and can sit in your pantry until you're ready to cook it. Just freeze it. When you unwrap your ham and the wrapping is slippery and there's a sweet, tangy smell, don't even mess with it. Wrap it right back up and chuck it in the garbage. And then quickly think of something else to feed your guests for New Year's Eve.
I made a pretty good batch of banana bread. Can I serve banana bread for dinner?
