We wanted to take a break from chicken. So, the other day we went to grab a duck from the market. No duck! Geez, just a couple of weeks ago during the holidays, the markets were chockablock with everything wonderful to cook, including capons, geese, and ducklings. So we bought a big ham instead and now we’re set for eternity. We coated the ham with Dijon mustard and brown sugar and baked it for dinner one night. Now we’re eating ham sandwiches for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Today’s lunch was buttered bread, thick slices of ham, and a smear of Dijon mustard topped with a spoonful of pear saffron chutney (a holiday gift from our friends Kristen and John). Lots of ham left—let us know if you’d like us to send you some. Maybe it’ll last us until the markets are full again for the holidays.
