I had an inspiration this morning for another leftover ham dish.  I fixed it for brunch, but it would be good for dinner or any time.  If you want to mess up all those dishes so early in the morning, be my guest and make it for breakfast.  I am a messy cook and can use almost every pan in the kitchen on a good day.  Just ask my girls.  But today it was me on my own to cook and clean!

Back to the leftover ham.  I had put it in the freezer, so I had to peel off about three slices and defrost in the microwave for a couple of minutes.  At that point it was ready to dice.  At this rate I think I have about 3 more meals, maybe 4 from a small, sliced ham I received as a gift for Christmas.  Be thrifty and use up those gifts.

Anyway, it is a cold, grey day here today and the kitchen is the place for me to be.  Even at work on a day like this I would prefer to be at home baking.

As we move into a new year the Tumbleweed Contessa crew wishes you the best.  May you have all you need and your health, your faith, and your family be secure.

Blessings and best wishes for a Happy New Year!     The Contessa (Linda)
