Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Leftovers Part 4: Ham

***This is an old post moved here from my old blog.***  

    Today for our Leftovers Series, I would like to share with you some of my ideas for yummy uses for leftover ham. I love ham, because it goes great with something for every meal. Ham & eggs at breakfast, ham sandwiches at lunch, and a variety of yummy ham dinners. We sometimes buy a large "loaf" of cooked ham from the deli department, just so that we have some on hand.
Now, let's ask ourselves:

What Can I make With Leftover Ham?

  • Flavor up your Potato Soup. Add cubes of ham to your potato soup for a burst of flavor.
  • Ham and Grilled Cheese. Add a slice or two of ham to your grilled cheese sandwich.
  • Fried Rice. Add some ham to your vegetable fried rice, to make it a complete lunch.
  • Scalloped Potatoes. Add chunks of ham to your favorite scalloped potato recipe, top with cheese, and bake, for a delicious casserole meal.
  • Ham and Eggs. Fry up some ham alongside your eggs for breakfast.
  • More Ham and Eggs. Add cubes of ham to your omelets, fritatas, quiches, and scrambled eggs.
  • Pizza Topping. Use ham as a topping for a homemade pizza.
  • Breakfast Skillet. Cut up some leftover baked potatoes and cubes of ham. Dice an onion and saute it in oil until tender. Add the potato and ham and some spices of your choice. I like paprika, salt, pepper, and onion powder. Fry everything up together and top with cheese. Serve with salsa or Tabasco sauce, if desired.
  • Make a "Stromboli". Use homemade or store-bought bread dough, and roll or press it out into an 8"x12" rectangle. Layer ham and cheese down the middle. Fold up sides and ends and seal. Place seam side down on a baking sheet,poke holes in the dough (for the yummy cheese to escape) and bake until golden. Slice and serve warm.
  • Make a pot of Beans. Use the ham bone to add awesome flavor to a pot of beans. ***EXTRA TIP*** I like to make extra beans and use those leftovers, as well. You can use them for things like refried beans, use them in soups, make BBQ beans, and use them in chili.
What are some ways that you like to use leftover ham?



  1. I agree, ham makes great leftovers. It never develops that funny taste from being reheated that some meats do.

  2. I love, love, love ham! And it's the only food I can stand to re-heat a million times. Great leftover ideas. Pinning!
