    • Absolutely; and its great for a chilly rainy spring day like we are having now.  

      Its Called:  Indian Dumplings

      Cook your ham bone off for broth, then remove all tiny bits of meat you couldn’t get off before. And add to the broth.  

      Peel and slice or dice a bunch of potatoes.  Enough for your crew.  

      2-3 Stalks of Celery - chopped

      1 Large Onion

      4  hard boiled eggs. Chopped.  

      1 pie dough crust, unbaked.  

      Add to your ham broth celery and onnion cook 20 minutes. Add your potatoes and hard boiled eggs.  Slice your raw pie dough crust in strips in bite size strips preferably.  Add to soup after you add the potatoes.  Cook for another 20 -30 minutes.  

      I know it sounds very different, but it is one awesome soup.  My husband is not a big soup eater, but he loves this one.  :)  Enjoy!

    • Split Pea or any bean soup

      Ham and veggie stir fry

      ham, peas, asparagus in a light white wine sauce of pasta

      make a salad

      sandwiches or paninis

      use slices of it instead of Canadian Bacon for Eggs Benedict

      the choices are mind-boggling

    • If you have the bone, best is to make congee (a rice soup)... using Chinese Rice (not Uncle Ben - may be Uncle Foo Man Chow, hee hee), 1 to 10 ratio of rice and water.  Ham bone in; set to boil and then to medium heat.  Till rice completely melt in - add ginger or green onion when serve if like.  Yummy yum.

    • Ham, Pasta & Peas

      Cut some ham into small cubes, or chopped slices and save for a quick meal.

      Prepare pasta.

       I do this by eye, so I dont have exact measurements.  

       Combine 1 cup heay cream and one cup milk, stirring, bring to a slow simmer, add ham and 1 package frozen peas. When back to a simmer, add 1/2 cup parmesan/romano cheese and pepper to taste.  

       Cheese should thicken sauce, if not enough, add a small amout of cornstarch/water.

       Serve over pasta, with small salad and prepared frozen garic bread
