Menu Plan Monday

Since I got a ham on sale this week, we will be having quite a few ham related dishes. We will also be freezing about half the ham for future meals. I'm also looking for a good recipe for the ham and corn chowder (or something similar), so if you know of one, please let me know.

  • Ham, apple sauce and potatoes
  • Ham & cheese calzones
  • Ham and corn chowder
  • BBQ Chicken
  • Beef stroganoff (carry over from last week)
  • Birthday Surprise (I left this one up to hubby since I refuse to make dinner on my birthday)

Since we will still have lots of ham to use up on future meals, I would love suggestions on dishes using ham. If you can think of something, leave me a comment with a link to the recipe.

To check out other menu plans, head over to Org Junkie. Maybe I'll get lucky and find some good ham recipes over there this week.

This is my recipe for a cheese based Ham & Corn Chowder. I haven't found anyone yet that didn't like it.

Cheddar Ham Chowder

2 c water
2 c cubed potatoes
1/2 c sliced carrots
1/2 c sliced celery
1/4 c chopped onion
1 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1/4 c butter
1/4 c flour
2 c milk
2 c shredded sharp cheddar
1 16 oz can corn
1 1/2 c cubed ham

In a large saucepan, bring the water, potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, salt & pepper to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 8-10 mins or until veggies are just tender. Remove from heat; do not drain. Meanwhile, in a mmedium saucepan, melt the butter. Blend in flour. Add the milk all at once; cook and stir until thickened. Add cheese and stir until melted. Stir this into the undrained veggies and return to heat. Add corn and ham; heat through, stirring occasionally.
