Sunday supper aka big meat meal
A 10 lb, whole clove studded, shank ham that I bought @ 99/lb over the weekend was baked off with a spicy brown mustard-brown sugar glaze and later topped with some pineapple rings. Since the oven was on, I baked some sweet potatoes as well.
Organic CSA corn joined the mix, along with the entire tub of organic, store bought spinach that I steamed.
And here's our Sunday supper!
Naturally, right after dinner, I prepped the ham: broth from the baking roaster was decanted to the repurposed, quart sized yogurt container for an upcoming soup (and fat for frying eggs), some meat was cubed for omelettes/soup/casseroles and frozen, more meat was sliced for sandwiches and leftover nights this week, finally the meaty shank bone was wrapped in the looking worse for the wear, frequently repurposed pieces of foil, and is now frozen for a future soup or pot of beans. Many, many meals out of this one ham.
