Ham and Potato Hash

Hey Y’all,

Everyone is concerned about what to do with leftover turkey after Thanksgiving as well they should be. However, we usually have both Turkey and Ham. So today I’m sharing a recipe for you to use that leftover Ham.

We have been buying ham steaks that come in a package of four at Sam’s Club. We can usually get at least two sometimes three good meals out of one ham steak. Yesterday for instance I made my version of those little egg sandwiches served on English muffins that are served at the restaurant whose name starts with Mc and ends with d’s. Then for supper last night I made some breakfast burritos with diced ham, potatoes and onions, and eggs.

Tonight the Cowboy and I put a turkey in the oven for lunch tomorrow and then to make casseroles and soup out of for other meals. They’ve had Honeysuckle turkeys on sale at our Market Street the last few weeks for .77 a pound. That’s cheap protein y’all.

I had planned to invite my daughter Aimee, her husband Josh and the Ham Boys for lunch tomorrow but we are in the middle of our first Arctic Blast of the season and the Weather Outside is Frightful! Plus, even though the laminate flooring in our living room and dining room is installed, the trim work needs to be done. So we won’t have furniture in the living room and dining room until my brother comes to finish that. Sorry I forgot to mention the flooring debacle before now, I’ve posted about it on enough on Facebook and this is supposed to be a happy place where happy thoughts alone are shared. ūüėČ Sooooo, having anyone over to eat would result in them having to dine on the floor or sitting on my bed. No. Thank You! LOL Hopefully it will all be over soon and I can start entertaining and getting my Christmas d√©cor up and so on and so forth.

Sorry back to my story. After we got the turkey in the oven for tomorrow, we sat here for awhile and the Cowboy asks me “What’s for Supper?” I hadn’t given it any thought. I knew I had leftover home fried potatoes from the breakfast burritos and I had a ham steak thawed out. There were mushrooms, celery, bell pepper and onion in the fridge. I decided that I was going to make something out of those. That’s how my Ham and Potato Hash was born.

I had the Rosemary and Thyme out for the turkey and decided to include them in my hash. I just love cooking with herbs and spices. This was a quick and easy way to use up some leftovers and incorporate veggies into our meal. I think it would even be good to add¬†in some scrambled egg and serve on flour tortillas, but tonight we had it with toast. I hope you’ll try this recipe soon and come back to let me know how it worked for you.

Easy Slow Cooker Pork Ribs

It’s taken me a few weeks to get back to blogging after my family reunion Labor Day weekend. It was very surreal to see something we had been planning finally come to life. There were around 96 Leverett Descendants there. All eight of my Daddy and all 7 of his siblings were represented.


We ate. We had an auction, with a real live auctioneer (It just so happens one of my cousins is an auctioneer.) The kids played in the water with sponges and bubbles and rode a real live pony and won prizes. We took pictures and visited and laughed and somehow 9 hours passed by so quickly. It was really great to see everyone and I’m really looking forward to next years reunion.

I’ve also been spending some time revamping my blog. Trying to get it all spiffed up and nice for y’all. I hope you’ll like the changes. I’ve won an on-line class to learn more about blogging that I’ll be starting tonight. So there might be some more changes coming soon at M2G. Please come back and check it out soon.
A few weeks ago (probably around Labor Day) my local grocery store had pork ribs, coleslaw and fresh corn on special. It sounded like a winning combination to me. So, I made them that night and today I’m gonna share the recipe I found using Sweet Baby Rays, my all time favorite BBQ sauce, with you. It’s got just the right sweetness and consistency to make my taste buds sing.

Here’s how I put them together.

I gathered the Ingredients. See the Sweet Baby Ray’s standing in the back, all quiet and stuff. I promise it’s not quiet once it hits your palate.


First I rubbed the ribs down with a generous amount of salt and pepper. If you have a favorite rub you could use that too. They’re your ribs! Fix ’em how you want ’em. Then I placed the ribs in the slow cooker.

I mixed the Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, Sweet Baby Ray’s. brown sugar and the oregano in a bowl. And I poured that sweet, savory, yummy mixture all over those ribs, turned them to coat them really good and I shut the lid. I turned my slow cooker on low and let them cook low and slow for 6-8 hours.


Now I have a confession to make. In my excitement of getting these wonderful ribs, the creamy coleslaw and the corn on the cob to the table and eaten. I forgot to take a picture of the finished product. (sigh) But trust me, It looked delish and tasted even better. The ribs were fall off the bone tender and finger lickin’ good. Don’t let my silly mistake keep y’all from trying these AWESOME ribs.



4 lbs. ribs of your choice – I used pork
salt and pepper to taste
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. vinegar
1 (18 oz.) bottle Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce – This Sauce IS Boss!
2 T. brown sugar
1 tsp. oregano

In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients except for the ribs themselves. Rub the ribs down with salt and pepper, cause Ms. Paula says you shouldn’t be afraid to rub your meat! Place ribs in slow cooker. Pour sauce mixture over ribs, and turn to coat. Cover, and cook on Low 6 to 8 hours, or until ribs are tender.

This recipe was another Facebook find. Unfortunately the person who shared it didn’t link back to the original post. I found this recipe @ allrecipes.com.
