We're not a particularly ham loving family. I grew up Jewish and wasn't raised on it. My husband likes it on occassion. My son doesn't like it.
That said ...
I walked into Aldi's to pick up a few groceries yesterday. They had a few hams, all at $5 each, since today is the 'sell by' date. I picked up the largest one that was left. And extra eggs, and a package of English muffins, and a package of sliced American cheese. I now have 6 'egg McMuffins' in the freezer, Navy bean soup is on the stove, split pea soup is going to be made, as will a ham and scalloped potato casserole. AND I'll still have ham left over that I'll freeze to cook with later.
I'm glad I had a few extra dollars available!
