" Would you like something to drink? Perhaps some ham?" -FTT Cinderella

We had ham for Christmas dinner and it was delicious. I found this recipe on for a 

Brown Sugar Glaze. 
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp flour
1/2 tsp dijon mustard
1/8 tsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
3 Tbsp water

Mix everything together. Score the outside of the ham and rub the glaze all over it. If you have a spiral cut ham, you can put it in between the layers a bit. Bake until heated through, according to times and temp on the label. I had a bunch of glaze left over so I was able to pour it over the finished ham and dip it a bit.

After a big ham dinner, inevitably there is a lot of ham left over. One thing my mom would make with ham is:

Ham and Noodle Casserole
Brown cubed ham in butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Add a can of cream of chicken soup, a soup can of milk, 1 tsp. curry powder or to taste and parsley until it looks right. Mix it all together and heat until warm. Add a small carton of cottage cheese being sure to temper it. Warm through and serve over noodles. We would use egg noodles but you could also use shells or some such.
