use your ham to make some baked macaroni & cheese. . you can have the ham sauced up by having it with butter , pinepple tidbits w/ syrup , little brown sugar , pepper & salt then bring to boil or sauce thickens already - serve with garlic rice :)

if you have cane sugar its good to use...or honey may give a nice sauce consitency too... just adjust for the sweetness you prefer.

I like only the deserts. And, I eat them just as they are. However, if turkey or ham is left over, you can fry the ham with eggs and cheese. And the turkey can be put into soup, or made into turkey salad.

No big dinner this year, and no leftovers. Our big dinner was before, and it is long gone. I always like whole berry home made cranberry sause. I even layer it with yogurt for a sundae.

I love making split-pea soup or any kind of bean soup and use the ham in the soups. My mother would make macaroni and cheese casserole and add chopped ham to it. I had a friend who would make impossible ham and cheese pie from her leftover ham. Go on the Bisquik website and you can find the recipe. We had turkey this year. It was a small turkey and there wasn't much for leftovers. I boil the carcass and later remove the meat. Then I take half the meat and set it aside for other turkey dishes. I make soup from the broth. With the leftover meat I will make turkey ala king, turkey pot pie, and once I made turkey croquette.

I just love to take everything and mash it all together! A spoonful of mashed potatoes, some corn, some stuffing, some beans, and lots of gravy - mash it all together, heat it up and it's good :) It's funny b/c when I eat it the first time I like to eat each one separately, but when it's left over, I like it all mixed up :)
