Evidently, I learned absolutely nothing from this year’s 10 pound Thanksgiving turkey â€” also known as Turkey ‘Til Your Eyes Bleed ’06 â€” because I went and cooked a seven pound ham for Easter.
Seven pounds. For two adults and a four year old. Even assuming there’s a pound’s worth of bone, fat, and other inedible bits, that’s still two pounds of pork per person.
Since Sunday, it’s been ALL HAM ALL THE TIME.
Ham for lunch!1
Ham for dinner!2

I am running out of ways to polish off this ham. I already put the bone and some of the meat in the freezer to make soup (although really, how much more soup-eating weather could possibly be left?) and I still have… I don’t know, two pounds or so in the fridge.
So, what would you do with all that ham?4
