I roast pineapple with mine and make au gratins too.
Anything with cheese is for me.

But too hot here to bake now.

Grilling's the call of the day.

This time of year, I would go ahead and cook the ham, put it in the fridge after it has cooled a bit, and serve it sliced cold with potato salad, maybe some coleslaw, fruit salad, some nice home-made rolls to use for little sandwiches.

Wow, too bad ... there is no reason not to "crock" a small ham. Although my grandmothers cooked on the stovetop before the days of the "crock-pot" - they had several good "slow cooked pot-ham" recipes.

One that would certainly work with a crock-pot was a ham with red potatoes, onions and green beans. You could also use a ham and black-eyed peas and diced turnips/rutabagas .. . ham and pineapple with cherry tomatoes, green bell peppers and rice ...

Certainly more than one "crock-pot" recipe ....

That's exactly what we did last week when our son and his wife were here visiting, minus the fruit salad. I let the bakery make the homemade rolls.

When we got tired of sliced ham sandwiches, I made ham salad by grinding together the ham, hard boiled eggs, and cheddar cheese, and then mixed in sweet pickle relish, a little mustard and Miracle Whip.

We just finished off the rest of the sliced ham last night...I cooked it in with scalloped potatoes and fresh broccoli, all in one dish.

That ALL sounds so good. DH is having a birthday in a few weeks - we'll invite a houseful (patio full?) and I think I'll buy a ham at Costco and make potato salad, etc. And Moomie Buns! Yum
