Mission: CHUM Open House Potluck

I am making two dishes for the potluck C.H.U.M. Open House tonight (www.chumtherapy.net). I am making my Aldi’s glazed ham and my sweet potato casserole. I also made a video for the occasion. I call it the CHUM Christmas Album.

CHUM Building Grand Opening

It is a surprise and will be premiered at tonight’s open house. After which DVD’s will be sold to raise funds.

Aldi's Ham
Buy spiral sliced ham at Aldis for $14.00
Cook covered in 250 over for 1.5 hours
Pour off liquid
Mix glaze packet with water - make it consistency of Mud
Add brown sugar if you put in too much water
Throw glaze in microwave for 30-45 seconds
Spoon glaze on the ham spoon it around and hit it with a
propane torch to make it bubble and stick to the ham as it
dribbles down the side.
Throw chunks of pineapple in around the ham at the bottom of
the pan - fresh if possible - canned is OK
Put back in the oven for an hour or so uncovered 250
To serve put in a Corning dish - cut into edible chunks
remove bone - arrange chunks and pineapple in the Corning
dish and take to the potluck
Chuck's Sweet Potato Casserole
Five sweet potatoes peeled and cubed into chunks about
1.5 in x 1.0 in - more than a single bite
Boil potato chunks until just cooked in water on stovetop
Drain and spread out in 9x12 glass baking dish
Cut up 1/4 pound butter into chunks and throw in
Mix 1/4 cup Orange Juice, 4 tablespoons of cornstarch,
4 tablespoons of brown sugar - make a kind of mud
pour into the pan - the potatoes will give off more liquid.
Put in oven at 250 for an hour.
Bring mini marchmellows to the venue - just prior to
serving put the mini marshmellows on top of the
potatoes and pop into the microwave for a short while.

This is still in progress – I may have to update if things
need adjustment.
