What’s the best thing about any big, family meal?
Besides spending time with your nutty family, I mean. Don’t worry. We all have one.
The best thing isn’t having a clean house (for five minutes) or having sleepy, worn out children after an afternoon of togetherness.
They’re both nice, but not the best thing.
It’s leftovers. I eat leftovers almost every single day for lunch; we intentionally make enough food for two meals each time we cook.
But then after a really big meal, we’re still eating leftovers two or three days later.
I get completely sick of those leftovers.
Back to my point.
After a recent family dinner, we had a lot of leftover ham. It was a nice ham, but it had gotten a little dry and I was not excited about eating it after the second meal of dry ham and mashed potatoes.
I might have said so, and that led Joe to work some magic.
He found a recipe in The Taste of Home Cookbook we got for Christmas. We liked this recipe so much that we’ve had it a few more times with frozen leftover ham. It’s awesome.
