Stretch that ham until it squeals!

That title is dedicated to my mom, a vegetarian who is very grossed out right now:) Sorry mom-had to do it!

My grandma Pat brought a yummy ham to our Christmas feast and left us with some nice leftovers (thanks Grandma!). The last few days we've made the most of it with three meals:

1) Ham, mashed potatoes, cooked carrots and peas

2) Ham sandwiches and soup

3) Black bean and ham soup w/leftover cornbread

Maybe a pound or so of ham and a bone turned into 3 great meals! We stretched it until it squealed!;)Hee hee.

Another way we are cleaning out the pantry!

I had to laugh about your comment about ham. :) I have a friend that has a similar comment but it's about pennies. "I can pinch a penny until it screams." :)

Glad to hear that you won the coupon giveaway over at Maybefrugal!

We love ham! I have a couple of hams in my freezer and 2 ham bones right now, too.
