I made turkey stew the day after Christmas, it lasted the week. So last night I baked a ham along with scalloped potatoes and green been casserole. So we have plenty of left overs for today and tomorrow.
Can't do the ham hocks and beans - we ate that so much when I was little, I promised myself as an adult I would never have to eat it gain. My older sister thinks it is wonderful. I love green lima beans, but not the dried version. I give my ham bones to a friend that likes the split pea soup. So it works out well.
I really love minestrone soup - need to think about making that next weekend....... Winter is so wonderful for stews and soups.
