Stormy Stewart


When I bring home a half of a smoked ham I make four different meals from it. All designed for two people. Making the meal toll six meals from one ham

First ham, scallop potatoes and corn

Then a casserole from the leftovers to go with maybe a chicken breast

Then I save some sliced for sandwitches and in omlets for breakfast

and lastly I make this soup which lasts another 3 or so meals usually freezing the last two meals for later use.

How to Make Pork and Bean Stew and two other meals included


  • 1Getting everything ready

    I start by slicing off the sides 2/3's of the meat from the remaining bone leaving a 1/3 bone with meat left. set aside covered in the fridge for two days from now.

    Divide the meat you took off into cuts for dinner (the best slices), sandwitches (Slices) and omlets (stray chunks)

    We are using the good slices for the first dinner.

    Place the sandwitch slices in the fridge for others to access.

    The omlet ham you can either use the next morning or freeze for an omlet day. There is usually enough for 2-4 days of omlets.
  • 2First dinner ~ Ham slices with augratin potatoes and corn

    Put the sliced ham in a oblong baking dish covering the bottom. Mix the maple syrup and Mc Donalds sweet chili dipping sause together and spread half on the ham add a little water in the bottom of the pan without disturbing the glaze.

    Prepare potatoes according to directions and place both in the oven on the setting for potatoes. turning the ham half way through and recoating with glaze.

    When potatoes are done take the ham out also.

    In a bowl microwave safe pour the corn minus the liquid into the bowl dot with butter and microwave 2-3 minutes. serve everything hot.
  • 3Second dinner ~ Casserole to go with meat.

    Combine leftover potatoes, ham and corn and place in a microwave bowl. Serve hot along with any meat as a side casserole.

    Then after dinner, Set kidney bean to soak over night.
  • 4The rest of the dinners ~ Pork and beans Stew

    In a stove top casserole pot add the kidney beans and water filled half way up (maybe 6-8 cups water) heat to boiling. turn off and allow to sit two hours. in the meantime add the garlic, chopped onion and the carrots. Heat to boiling again and then turn to medium low and cook 1-2 hours with the bone in the broth. Then take out the bone and pull off the meat and return the meat only to the stew adding the chicken bouillon at this time.

    At this point I place the bone in the freezer for 20 minutes then send it outside with Raptor. (Do this early though as dogs love it but have tummy trouble with the pork.)

    Then add the canned items and liquid except for the liquid from the butter or lima beans (drain that one first)and continue to cook until the water turns to a thicker broth and serve. 1-2 hours ant meduim low stiring every so often

    We usually have dinner for two nights from the stew and I freeze the last for later.
