Ham Again?

Why yes, we are having ham again. What else did you expect? But first, here's another beautiful winter sunset for your enjoyment.

I do hope they never develop this land and ruin my sunsets.

And now, back to the ham. First up is a ham sandwich. Honey mustard, Baby Swiss cheese and onion nicely complement the smoky ham.

I typically make ham loaf once a year. So here is this year's version. I have ham of course, onion, black pepper, ground mustard, bread crumbs, evaporated milk, brown sugar and an egg.

I love my food processor. The ham was so easy to chop up after I trimmed off the skin. Once I added the other ingredients, I decided that the mix was too dry so another egg and some Half-and-Half were included in the dish.

I drizzled olive oil in a baking dish and formed the ham loaf in the pan. I also drizzled some of the glaze from the baked ham over the ham loaf. This then went into a 350 degree oven for one hour.

Delicious. One more ham dish down.

And now I present the final ham dish - for now. The syrup from the pineapple was mixed with an equal amount of brown sugar and that was poured over the ham and pineapple. This was covered and baked for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
And to think that I only have a 13-cup container full of ham left to re-imagine.

I admit to an unholy fondness for ham loaf, so yours looks very good
