I'm making the hot pockets that I was suppose to make yesterday. I had forgotten the beans that were in the slow cooker. OR, dh is grilling ribs. I we do the ribs, I got their terriaki noodles and the sour cream potatoes that they like. I'll just make me some steamed asparagus and carrots.

What I'm sure of is fresh green beans and baby new potatoes. I asked dh if he wanted more of the ham or something else and he said it didn't matter, so we may have some more ham. My dd brought me a wonderful canteloupe, so we may have that either as our salad, or as dessert (or maybe both). You can tell I'm not one of those who do a lot of meal planning beforehand.

I'm heading off to the Easter Ham Leftovers thread after this to look for ideas for dinner, since we're having (you guessed it!) Leftover Easter Ham!

Not sure...........I'm still waiting for the countertop people to deliver and install my countertop today. So we may end up eating out.

I'm not for sure yet, but I'm going to say chicken tacos, since I still have around 4 lbs. of chicken to use up.

I'll probably grab Baco Tell as I arrive late and have to get up early. Unless I grab something now, I really don't have time for anything else.

Since I made a whole smoked turkey for just the 2 of us for Easter dinner, I have lots of leftovers.

Thus tonight will be hot open-faced smoked turkey sandwiches, with turkey gravy & melted swiss cheese on top. Green salad will be optional.

I'm fixing PA Baker's Mexican Chicken and rice soup. I'm not sure what I'm having along with it though.

We will probably hack at the remains of our ham like some of you. Personally, I'd rather be at Chef Jimmy's.

Still working on leftovers here also.
But, I'd rather use it than throw them away.
I had a conversation with my son when he stopped by the other day about chinese carryout, and he complained that the wonton soup from our local carryouts lacked the jullienned slices of pork that used to occupy the bottom of the container of soup. Out of curiosity, I ordered a large container of soup and sure enough he was right. The thin slivers of pork were few and far in between! So, I jullienned my leftover lamb and added that to the soup! Hope it works!
John.

Hey - you can add virtually anything to takeout Chinese soups. I've routinely added leftover cooked shrimp, shredded chicken/turkey, etc.
