IMG_1801I bought a ham last week while purchasing our turkey for Thanksgiving, thinking this year I might have multiple choices for dinner.  However, the same night I brought it home Kenny asked if he could open it.  Well, I guess you can figure out… no ham for Thanksgiving dinner!  I now have the task of creating something to do with ham leftovers three days before Thanksgiving.

So breakfast this morning… Quiche.  This was so delicious, you should try this with your Thanksgiving leftover ham. If having guest for the week it makes a wonderful all in one breakfast meal.  Served with Kenny’s home grown tomatoes, perfect!

Kenny and I wish each of you a safe and happy Thanksgiving with your family and friends.
