My daddy (yes, 40-something year old women from the South still call their fathers Daddy :)) gave us this huge ham for Christmas, and we've honestly just been intimidated and lazy about dealing with it. We've waited until the "use by date" is very short. Larry threw it on the smoker today, and it turned out deliciously. But, there's a ton of it!! We will have to freeze most of it due to our procrastination on getting it cooked. Please send me your favorite ham recipes, as we will be eating on this for the next few months. I think we can safely eat on it from the freezer for 3 months, don't y'all?
Tonight, we just ate sliced ham with veggies from our freezer - peas, butter beans, corn and cornmeal fritters - a great meal for this cold night!
Tomorrow night, I had planned on making Bacon and Cheddar Pizza. Guess what I'll be substituting for the bacon? ;)
Members of our Sunday school class, be forewarned! You will be helping us eat up this ham!!
Many blessings to all!!
