Week of April 12, 2009

We had a week full of delicious and fairly simple meals last week - I love a week when there are no duds. My Easter dinner was a far bigger success than I had anticipated. I'd been sick for days with a horrible sore throat and don't know how I pulled it all together. That being said, it was fairly easy, actually. The ham turned out perfectly (time to admit that I have never cooked a ham before in my life - we have never been big ham eaters) and both Paul and his mom raved about it. The potato and leek galette was also delicious - I will absolutely be making that again. It was a tasty compliment to the ham.

Any tips on what to do with mounds and mounds of leftover ham? We will have lots of ham sandwiches, but aside from that I don't have any fresh ideas. I found this Pork Quesadilla recipe from Everyday Food, maybe I'll give it a shot. Omelets with chopped ham are probably another good choice.

I do Nan's famous ham & scalloped potatoes and I have been known to throw some ham in a pasta dish as well!

I like to make a bunch of ham and cheese biscuits or use it in a strata or quiche.
