Thanksgiving Menu - Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

This year we are having Thanksgiving away from home and I have been elected the cook (so excited for Thanksgiving on the beach!) I figure there is no better way to take my recipes with me, then posting them, so you'll get a little flavor of my Thanksgiving meal. This year I'll be cooking for my husband, my parents, and my 4 kids, and since it is a small intimate celebration ( and I'm not having to mass produce food) I want it to be something really special.
