      Hello HMBill-

      Sounds good and a great use of leftovers.

      Now, grab that left over ham bone and cook it for a few hours with water, greens (collard, mustard and/or turnip) a little soy sauce, white wine and a diced potato and onion and you've used everything but the oink.

      (If you are not a greens fan, use green beans.)
