Mom and I headed to the gym to get our swole on. I started with 16 minutes on the elliptical. Next was about thirty minutes of full body weights on the machines. I finished up with 11 minutes on the stairclimber and some stretching.
Before Mom and I could shop, we filled our bellies in at the food court of Esplanade Mall. Mall lunch included a Subway veggie club with american cheese and mustard and Baked Lay’s for me and Sbarro’s baked ziti for Mom.
After sales and shopping to use up my gift cards, we headed to my sister’s house and brought over three cafe’ au laits from the famous Cafe Du Monde: Home of the Beignet. We brought over some beignets for the nephew, but he wasn’t happy with the powdered sugar getting all over his clothes.
After a day of shopping and a visit to my sister, I found the Christmas ham still in her fridge. So I told her I would take it home and cook something up or freeze it for future use. I decided to whip up some ham fried rice for tonight’s supper after Mom suggested it.
Then I added 5 scrambled eggs to the center of the pot. Once the eggs were cooked through I added about 3 cups cooked rice and 10 or so splashes of soy sauce with salt and pepper to taste. Once mixed and heated dinner was ready for eatin’!
I still have three thick slices of ham left that I wrapped and stuck in the freezer for some soup or beans or some other concoction.
And some miniature taffy candies the husband received from a coworker also made there way into my belly. They taste just like Roman Candy, a holiday treat that was always purchased from the street vendor cart when I was little whenever we came across one.
Do you have any Round 2 Recipes that I might try to use up some of my ham? Feel free to share a link.
