Weeknight Family Supper Meal: #2 Leftover Ham with Bowtie Pasta and English Peas

Weeknight Family Supper Meal, an inspiration for a meal one night of the week that may include ideas how to make part of the meal ahead, how to freeze any leftovers or how to make leftovers into a makeover for another meal.  

After Christmas, we always have plenty of ham leftover.  This Christmas was no different.  I usually buy a whole ham for Thanksgiving and a spiral ham for Christmas.

I love to dice leftover spiral ham.  The cuts are all uniform and the perfect thickness.  They look pretty in ham salad or a pasta dish like Leftover Ham and Bowtie Pasta.

Pork Chops are a favorite around our house, anyway, you cook them.  

The boneless pork chops grilled tend to be a little tough and dry at times, so we like to brine them before cooking them or coat them in a super delicious glaze while cooking them.

The main dish is Smothered Burrito Casserole using premade frozen burritos.   

For the perfect accompaniment, a tasty recipe for Mexican Salad that goes all the way back to the 1960's.  Sometimes we add a side dish of whole kernel corn, Mexican Rice, and chips and hot sauce.

Dessert is a simple layer of crescent rolls blanketed around a fluffy cream cheese mixture known as Sopopia Cheesecake.
