Frugal Friday – recipes for leftover ham

 

frugal family leftover ham

Christmas ham is an all time favorite at our house. We love to get the honey baked ham and we always have plenty of it left over. After the first day or two, I always need to come up with a new way to serve that delicious ham to keep it interesting.

One of the best ways I’ve found to use it up is to put it into a cheesy macaroni casserole. This recipe once gained me a standing ovation – right in my own kitchen! It really is THAT good!

I call it:

“Cheesy Delicious Macaroni & Ham Casserole” 

Ingredients: 

  • 2 cups  macaroni -cooked according to package directions & drained
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup  flour
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion or other onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 pack (10 ounces), frozen chopped broccoli, cooked & drained (1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 cups chopped/bite size pieces – cooked ham
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs or crushed Ritz crackers tossed with 1 tablespoon melted butter

cheesy delicious ham casserole

 Directions:

Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain and set aside. In a medium saucepan melt 3 tablespoons butter over low heat. Add flour, green onion, salt, and pepper; stir until blended. Add milk and stir until blended. Bring to a boil; cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly, about 2 minutes. Add in broccoli, macaroni, ham, and 1 cup cheese. Transfer to a 2-quart casserole dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese & buttered crumbs over top of the casserole.
Bake at 350° for 30 minutes, or until top is brown.
Stretch those leftovers a little further by using the ham bone and scraps to slow cook pinto beans. Follow this delicious step-by-step recipe for southern pinto’s ,so good it’ll make yer tongue slap yer brains out! (If any of my northern friends need a translator for that one, just holler)
I’d love to see some of your family recipes or favorite ways to stretch a dollar.

Our frugal tips for the week: 

Family fun does not have to break the bank this fall!  With only a few simple ingredients and a family walk in the outdoors, you can make these easy bird treats and enjoy educational fun . . . that’s for the birds!

for the birds

It’s a great idea to hang these handmade bird feeders nearby so that you can be sure to see the feathered friends who come visit for a special treat. All that’s needed to make these is a few pine cones slathered in peanut butter and rolled in wild bird seed.

nature project

Add a little more excitement by donning binoculars and a field guide to identify the birds who flock to your yard. These treats are so affordable, you can help feed your new friends all through the winter. Be sure to get the kids involved. Other ideas to turn it into a fabulous learning experience include photographing the birds or sketching them in an art journal.

Don’t have an art journal? You can make one with inexpensive Composition notebooks and personalize them with your favorite scrapbook papers.  These simple journals make a terrific gift for a friend as well. They also make a cool new “smash book”  - crafty and frugal!

nature journals

Take notes and collect data to chart the number and types of birds in your area. Try different kinds of bird seed to see if one attracts more birds or attracts different types of birds than another.

Bird watching is a fun family activity that is not only educational and fun, but also super frugal! Cornell Lab has a wonderful FREE resource to learn more about our fine feathered friends here.

Whether you are looking for a new frugal activity or wanting to add an outdoor element to the family homeschool, all ages can benefit from the fresh air and activities that are For the Birds!

Elk Meat: It’s what’s for dinner!

frugal homemaking

Guest post by: Midge

Although my “year of the carnivore” series is officially over, I came across a situation I just could not pass up sharing with you!

This week a friend of ours came home from a big hunting trip out west and brought back a cooler full of elk meat to share with our family. Now, as you may know, I’ve been cooking deer meat in a special venison chili  (and boy was it good!) but, elk meat, I have never attempted. In the spirit all things frugal, I certainly could not pass up the opportunity to learn. So, elk, it is.

In the process of finding out how to cook this new dish, I learned a few things. Did you know that elk meat has less fat than chicken, pork and beef? It’s true! I even read somewhere that it’s lower in fat than some seafood.  It has less cholesterol than bison, venison, or turkey! Who knew?

As a matter of fact, in most cases, at least in the recipes I came across, it was recommended that some fat be added to the dish in order to add moisture. The elk can be substituted for any red meat. You can use it in stir fry, grilling, roasting in an oven or the crockpot. You can even fry it up in a pan!

Evidently, elk makes a great burger when wrapped in bacon and grilled. If you decide to cook a roast, it’s as simple as adding plenty of moisture, like water with a few spices and slow cooking for a couple of hours.

I used the same kinds of special spices I keep in the pantry all the time to add to my roasts. Personally, I choose a sprinkling of garlic, a little fresh ground pepper, and maybe a touch of salt. Simple is good, and elk is a flavorful meat that does not require much dressing at all.

If you are keeping tabs, so far, I haven’t spent any extra money on this meal. (Now aren’t you proud?)

We are big fans of country fried steak (in olive or coconut oil) and all that is required to make that happen with elk, is the elk. The recipe I found is just like the country fried steak I always make. Cut it into strips, rinse and pat dry, then lay out flat. I like to season my flour (about 1-2 cups) with a bit of salt and pepper and then dredge the meat, coating it on each side. Heat 3-4 tablespoons of oil on medium to high in a cast iron skillet or a heavy pan and sear them on both sides. Lower the heat to medium low and continue to cook through for a few more minutes on each side. Once all the country fried elk steak has been cooked (and placed on a plate lined with paper towels or napkins to soak up extra oil) you can use the skillet leftovers to make a delicious country gravy.

roast elk

Being the busy mom that I am, during a busy week, like it is, I decided to go with an elk roast. I added an inch or 2 of water to the bottom of my roasting dish. I rinsed the meat and placed it in the pan and then added garlic powder, pepper, a pinch of salt and a just little bit of mixed dried Italian spices (just for fun) and covered it with foil. I placed it in the oven at 300 and roasted for an hour. I pulled it out and added carrots, onions, checked the water level and removed the foil to place it back in the oven for an additional 45 minutes to an hour.  You can slow cook the meat for longer, just be careful that it does not dry out.

The elk meat is naturally tender and flavorful and it’s now a favorite addition to our frugal family meal planning! Fortunately, there was about 45 pounds of elk meat in that cooler, so I’ll be trying some of those other recipes for cooking elk very soon.

How about you? Have you ever prepared elk meat? I’d love to hear about your favorite frugal recipes!

Sincerely, Midge

Learn one of the best ways to save money—by doing repairs yourself!

 Molly-6-13-FixItMollyCover

One of the basic tenets of being frugal is to not buy a replacement item when what you currently own is repairable. In this month’s issue of Molly Green Magazine, you’ll learn from others in what NOT to do, find tips on painting, how to save a meal that you think is ruined, and much more! Being confident in your approach to repairs is one key to your success. Let Molly and her team share their secrets with you this month!

  • June is National Dairy Month. Be sure to enjoy some dairy goodness with a bowl of ice cream on June 7th, which is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day!
  • Being content with what you have, especially when it’s not the shiny new model, can be a challenge. Learn how to find joy in the frugal journey with Molly.
  • Join Rhonda Barfield as she shares the adventures of Ken, the fix-it man. Ken was a prominent fixture in the Civil War-era mansion that Rhonda shared with her family for a time.
  • Are you short on shelf space? It’s a common thing for us frugal homemakers to try to make do with what we have. Let Sharon White show you how to repurpose cardboard boxes with a craft knife and glue into a sturdy toy shelf!
  • Sometimes when you are faced with a repair a bit beyond your scope of knowledge, the best thing to keep in mind is that “The worst you can do is break it more.” Being a bit fix-it impaired, this mantra helped Rhonda Barfield overcome some of her trepidation at repairs.
  • What do you do with a dish that is too salty? How about a dish that’s too sweet? Rhonda Barfield reveals some easy, quick fixes for those little oops moments!
  • Sometimes the things that need fixing are not appliances, fixtures, or furniture, but a simple thing like makeup. Let Molly show you how to salvage a broken foundation cake or tube of lipstick.
  • When you purchase products, they normally come with some sort of warranty. If the item needs to be replaced before that warranty time has expired, would you know where to find the paperwork that is needed for the exchange or refund? If you follow Molly’s tips for a warranty / instruction binder, you’ll always have this needful information right at your fingertips!
  • Finally, Molly shares her top three painting tips with you. Learn how she minimizes clean up, keeps the paint can lid clean, and what she does with the leftover paint.

Sneak Peek Monday~ Budget Your Vacation

Tis the season for vacation planning. . . take a sneak peek into my FRUGAL FAMILY VACATIONS magazine today!

Keeping it All Together: Budget Your Vacation

This magazine’s theme is frugal family vacations, and we’ll be looking at a lot of different ways to save money and still enjoy relaxing time together as a family. This column will help to organize your vacation budget and finances (be sure to check the forms at the end of the magazine)!

Vacations do not have to be expensive, especially if you plan ahead. The most important step is to consider where you will need to spend your money—transportation, food, lodging, etc. I have included a worksheet at the end of this Digest for you to print out and use to help you plan the financial aspect of your vacation. First, you need to set a budget based on the cash you have on hand and whatever you will be willing to put on your credit card. If you are going to pay for part of your vacation with credit, be sure that you have a plan in place to pay off that balance as soon as possible.

One of the best ways to save money is to look for vacation packages that include lodging and entertainment in one price. Usually you have to book a room for a certain number of nights, but you’ll save money on tickets to theme parks and other local attractions. Often it is worth it to use a local travel agent, as they have access to deals that you cannot get on your own. You might want to call a couple of local agents to see if they have any specials available. You can also save money by staying at a campground.

Before you get in the car or plane to travel to your vacation destination, plan activities that will keep the kids busy. If they are busy, you might not hear, “Are we there yet?” as often! Head to the local dollar store, and buy some items for a travel “goody bag” like coloring books and crayons, search-a-words, handheld games, stickers and paper, Mad Libs™, etc. Wrap each item and have a schedule set so that the kids know when they can open up a new “present.” This could include times when you cross state lines, stop for a gas refill, see a certain roadside sign, etc. Make it a fun travel “treasure hunt.” Don’t forget to include some snacks and times to eat them. Hungry children do not make for a good trip!

If you are able to afford to travel this year, here are some more tips for saving money when planning for your vacation. At the end of this magazine, you will also find a vacation checklist to remind you of all of the steps to take to plan the perfect vacation.
