ham joint recipes honey the annals of family history, I've served some memorable dishes at holiday meals. I was the first to serve plum pudding and baked Alaska, both properly presented "flambe" which made my family extremely nervous (okay, yes, so I once nearly set the house on fire. I was five years old). I was the first to offer a prime rib cooked in a stove barely registering a temperature. The meat was perfection and no one died of e-coli, though my dogs were miffed at having been denied their share of a $65 piece of meat.

Now, on the the show! Each show is a wonderful mix of music with instrumentals and vocals, as well as incredibly talented actors playing out the parts from some of the best musicals one could hope to see. The upcoming performances for the last few months of 2009 and into January 2010 include Elton John and Tim Rice's "AIDA",(showing until November 15th, 2009) and a Christmas production beginning November 24th based on the musical "Meet Me In St. Louis".

Most Thanksgiving dinner tables are packed with once a year favorites. One way to spend less is to cook less. If you are hosting the family get together, make it a pot luck. You provide the main star, the turkey or christmas ham, 3 side dishes and one dessert. Have the other members of your family to RSVP what they will be bringing. We have done this for years on my fathers side of the family. We look forward to the fried Turkey my uncle brings. We fight over who gets the last of the chicken and dumplings. The kids make themselves sick with too much of my cousins banana pudding. With everyone chipping in, the cost is not too much for anyone. It turns the meal into a real celebration, one person is not stuck in the kitchen all day cooking.
