I'm cooking a whole raw ham that I plan on injecting with a Cajun praline honey marinade. This is my first time cooking a ham so I'm a little nervous.
What goes good with ham? I need at least one appetizer, 2 or 3 veggies and other things that go good with ham. I don't think I've ever had ham for a holiday meal before.
What do ya'll think. And what are you cooking for Christmas Eve or day?

I'm doing as little cooking as possible. Thinking tamales for Christmas eve and not sure about Christmas day. We usually do a rib roast, but there are only 4 of us so that's more trouble than I think I am willing to go to. IDK, maybe Chinese like in Christmas Story.
Appetizers w/ ham? I'm guessing anything you would serve at Easter (assuming you make ham then). Deviled eggs, maybe bacon wrapped jalapenos? Veggie tray with dip. How about endive w/ blue cheese, chopped wasabi almonds and balsamic reduction? That's really good.

You gotta have some cheesy potatoes to go with the ham. Yum :p My husb. just made some TX caviar over the weekend & it was delicious. (good munchy stuff- w/ Tostitos scoops chips)
I don't have to cook on Christmas Eve. (we go to my mom's) or on Christmas (we go to my dad's) Woohoo :)

It will look something like this but with chopped almonds and a drizzle of reduction.
You can make it a really pretty presentation something like this:
