Revamping The Menu

See, this is what I mean by flexibility.

Today Zander and I were at the store to pick up milk and I happened to glance in the direction of the hams. I found a fantastic deal on a great brand of ham, and right away, Zander lit up when I mentioned buying a ham. My whole family loves ham. So I picked it up, and while I thought briefly about tucking the ham into the freezer, it's been awhile since we've had ham, so I'm putting it on the menu. So here is the revised Friday and Saturday for this week, and the remaining ham will be frozen for later use. The bone will also be used to make stock, as I'm down to 1 package of ham stock. I love multi-purpose meat!

Friday: Mustard Baked Ham, Potato Pancakes, Homemade Applesauce, Lettuce Salad

Saturday: Rotini and Cheese with Broccoli and Ham

Most meat-eating folks would love a good Ham & Beans soup-type recipe...

I have one! I'm afraid though that I'm not sure how to make it veg-friendly. Unless you use soy products and there's a smoky fake ham you can use. It is excellent though, and I suppose it would be worth a try with veggie broth and maybe some roasted vegetables thrown in for added flavor.
