When I made pulled pork for fathers day, I threw the remainder of the pork, the bone and all the fat into the freezer. Unfortunately there was a LOT of fat. But, I was able to get some pork together - shredded it, mixed with bbq sauce - heated - and served on corn tortilla's.

Made a basic salad. One thing I learned to do recently that I realllly enjoy is I mix 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil with 1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar and mix. I pour that onto the salad I make - which serves a decent portion to probably 3 people, even if it's just me and my husband. that's in case we want a second helping. I eye the whole thing. I also squeeze 1/2 lemon into the salad and one of the items I put in there is two hard boiled eggs that I crumble into it. The combination is just wonderful!!!. Of course I put other stuff in too.

I took the ham bone - not too big, some of the ham, and a bag of stock items I had in the freezer and brought to a boil. it's simmering now. Not sure what i"m going to do with it. Maybe make soup tomorrow or something to that effect. Ideas?

Rice balls and zucchini sticks taste GREAT when heated in a wok with onions, mushrooms and garlic.

Beans or greens. I've been having a hankering for some greens lately.

Does anyone have an idea how to separate a ham bone joint. The one from the 10# fresh ham is enormous, and plenty big enough for a couple of pots. Maybe a pot of beans AND a pot of greens. I hope one of you can come up with an easy way to separate the two bones. I'm kind of afraid to start on my own and end up with a nasty cut. I thought about using a flat blade screwdriver and a hammer, but where to use it. Heeeeeeeeeeeelllllllllllllp!

Oven fried chicken thighs, baked potato, and corn on the cob.

I have tried dreamfields pasta - not bad. We like the rice pasta's out there better - Tokido or something like this is one brand we like. Not sure how low carb though. I have heard that some people with diabetes will still have insulin rises after eating dreamfields pasta and others are perffectly fine with it.
