Green (or pink!) Eggs and Leftover Ham

Looking back at the holiday – like many of you, our Easter dinner had two important components – decorated hard-boiled eggs and ham. image While my guys and sister were decorating eggs as chicks and bunnies, I went a little off the reservation and thought a pig would be cute. image He was too cute to eat!  Although, it was my intention to bring he and his friends home to make egg salad.  I guess my mom will get to enjoy that task! I got lucky, because she sent the leftover ham home with me! image So, for the remainder of the week, I will be focusing on ways to use it up!  Starting with tonight’s dish… Ham and Pineapple kabobs! imageSince it’s already cooked, I didn’t worry about thicknesses or the difference between the spiral sliced pieces and the chunks.  I did a few with just ham for anyone feeling picky.  I added the teryaki sauce at the end of grilling.


I served it with some jasmine rice flavored with a little vegetable broth, a splash of pineapple juice, ginger and slivered almonds.  It was a new flavor combo for the guys and the ginger was a little too assertive.  Overall, the rice was not their favorite.

  2. First let me say, your little pig is a very nice touch and very cute. I love little piggies. I love leftovers, I am creating meals as well to use up the ham I have left. Sent some home with Sarah. Your dish looks very good. Enjoy the rest of your week creating your delicious meals for your guys.
