Christmas in July 2013 - day 12 / Jour 12 - Friday Night at the movies!

Christmas with the Kranks / Noël chez les Kranks

I like this funny film that teaches us what is important for Christmas. J’aime bien ce film très drôle qui nous montre ce qui est important pour les Fêtes.

Tim Allen is a must in Christmas movies! Tim Allen est très bon dans les films de Noël.

Hmmm… how about a Christmas sweater like the mom wears in the movie? Que diriez vous d’un gilet comme la maman porte dans le film?

Not the real one but gives you an idea.  Pas tout à fait celu8-ci mais ça vous donnes une idée.

And of course a recipe for easy-peasy honeyed ham in the crockpot! Et bien sûre la recette du jambon dans la mijoteuse très facile!

Honeyed-Ham recipe

2 cups packed brown sugar
1 (8 pound) cured, bone-in picnic ham


Spread about 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar on the bottom of the slow cooker crock. Place the ham flat side down into the slow cooker - you might have to trim it a little to make it fit. Use your hands to rub the remaining brown sugar onto the ham. Cover, and cook on Low for 8 hours.

Of course you can add some spices per your taste. Vous pouvez y ajouter des épices selon votre goût.


  1. Love this movie - the scene where Luther gets Botox is hilarious! Yum - the honey ham recipe looks delicious and so simple.

    I'm on the fence about Christmas sweaters - I think it's a cute idea but people seem to thing they are so cheesy - they've even come up with ideas like this:

    1. Well, the sweaters may be nice but just for our eyes :)
      The party ideas is funny

  2. *...people seem to THINK...

  3. What a cute post. I love this movie, love the book that inspired it. How creative of you to take elements of the movie and show us how to make them!

  4. LOVE the movie idea for Christmas in July!
