I just thawed a bag of ham chunks/slices that was nearing the end of it's freezer life and I need to do soemthing with it.

I've already made split pea / lentil soup with ham chunks, and ham and egg breakfast burritos (both in the freezer. Any other ideas?

It's just me here, and I have a limited enthusiasm for ham. Any freezable ideas? OK, the ham and potato thing could be made freezable.

My mom used to make some sort of beans and ham. It was awful! You might be able to make it better. You would probably use some seasoning. :)

Do chickens eat ham? What about the cats? :P

I just made a pot of my Grandmom's bean soup. YUMMMMMM. Boil the ham in water, add cleaned white beans. After an ohour, add carrots, celery and onions, salt and pepper as needed. The KEY is marjoram, about a teaspoon. Add a can of crushed tomatoes near the end, and you will be in "hog heaven."

I can't eat ham, but we had dinner at a friend's house and they sent some home for my husband to eat. I made him a ham and pineapple pizza (gluten free of course).

How about fried rice and ham (sautee diced onions, diced ham, scramble an egg & add; add defrosted frozen green peas; mix in tamari sauce to taste). Garnish with green onions, if you like them.

Or ham, egg, cheese mini-frittatas (in cupcake tins) and freeze.

Rice pasta macaroni & cheese, add diced ham & peas.

1) Fire up the Weber grill

2) Lightly brush a few cross slices of pineapple with extra virgin olive oil

3) Grill each slice approximately 3 minutes on each side (get a nice sear strip)

4) Remove from grill and eat as a side with the ham (Mmmm carmelized pineapple!!!)

5) Put on your Hawaiian lei that you bought at the dollar store for $1

6) Consider a mai tai as an accoutrement to the ham and pineapple

7) Send those winter blues far, far away

8) Return to dollar store and buy a $1 Hawaiian grass skirt

9) Consider buying a $1 coconut bathing suit top

10) Repeat as needed

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
