We went to Jerry's sister's for Christmas day and had a lovely time! Jerry's mom was there too and we had ham, beans, pasta salad, homemade rolls, goat cheese and crackers, and homemade pickles and deviled eggs, YUMMY! Heck, I could have gotten by on the cheese, crackers, pickles and deviled eggs! :) There was quite a bit of ham left over so everyone got to take some home. It was a spiral sliced ham and Jerry's sister and mom took the precut slices which left me with the HAM BONE!! :)
The latest issue of MaryJanesFarm magazine has several recipes using a ham bone and they call the article "Nothin' but a ham bone." I thought that was pretty cute! I got enough meat off of the "bone" for five meals for the two of us plus there is still enough meat on the bone to cook up with a big pot of beans. WOO-HOO!! I just love it when I can get frugal, especially with food!
Any good leftovers at your house?
