Watch as I make ham salad without mayo or cream cheese, for sandwiches or on top of salads
What do you do with leftover ham from Easter if you're sick of now by now? That was my dilemma the other day. I solved that dilemma by figuring on making a ham salad. Although I wanted to make the ham salad without mayo or cream cheese like all the recipes online showed. I looked online for a recipe for Italian ham salad but couldn't find one that stood out. Actually, I didn't find any, so I thought about the recipe I use for Italian tuna or chicken salad. Maybe that would work? That's what today's video is all about. So tune in and watch the show. Here is a list of ingredients (It's totally up to you what you end up using. This is my recipe): celery, peppers, carrots, cucumber, lemon pepper, yellow and Gulden's mustard, basil, Italian herbs, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and onion powder (you could use fresh), honey. I hope you give this versatile recipe a try. It's great for sandwiches or on top of salads. Buon Appetito!
Watch as I take Easter leftovers and carve, slice, and figure out what to do with them.
Leftovers! Are they the scourge of your holiday meals? We usually have an abundance of leftovers since I cook for anywhere for 10 to 20 people, and as always, we overestimate who's going to show. Of course, that leaves us with meals for a couple of days, and once we're tired of them, it's freezer time. Once in the freezer, I have time to consider what to make with all that's left. In this case, the ham will be used for ham salad, video coming this week, and lentil or pea soup. The ham bone is already in the freezer, waiting for its day in the soup of choice. The beef from the beef ribs will be used for a weeknight meal next week. I haven't decided on that recipe yet, but I'll keep you updated. As for the beef bones, they're going into a pot of boiling water to clear them of the spices we marinated them with so the dogs can enjoy some delicious bones as an Easter treat. What do you do with your leftovers? Buon Appetito!!!

Watch as I freshen up a leftover deli sandwich & addressing some comments
I bought this sandwich the other evening at the local Vons. It's called The Trio with ham, roast beef, and turkey breast. I added an oil and vinegar topping that had basil, oregano, salt, and pepper mixed in. Today I decided that the lettuce was old, It's been in the fridge since yesterday) so it needed a revamp. I mixed up some sweet relish ( I didn't have a sweet pickle in the house), some avocado oil, balsamic vinegar, crushed red pepper for some zing, and six slices of cucumber for that crunch I lost with removing the lettuce. I hope you enjoy the food! Buon Appetito! P.S. I also addressed some comments of late, especially a personal one that affected my family. Please understand and if you want to comment personally you can do that by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a great Monday!
