      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Ham Leftovers?

Recommended Posts

I scored a free spiral ham from my local grocery store around Easter time. Plan on cooking it up today in a covered roaster pan with an apple juice bath (if you haven't tried this, it's fantastic, I highly recommend it). Any way, my questions is, besides sandwiches does anyone have a good leftover ham recipe? Hot dishes, soups etc? We're leaving for vacation mid-week so I want to make sure it's eaten before then. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

Red beans and Rice! This is my favorite for ham leftovers:

1 lb. dried red beans

1 large onion, chopped

1 green pepper, chopped

1 rib celery, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

1 lb smoked sausage, andoullie is good, so is Polish

ham in bite size chunks, 3-4 cups

1 bay leaf

1/2 tsp sage

1/2 tsp black pepper

pinch of cayenne red pepper

salt to taste

Place beans in a large bowl and cover with water to soak overnight. Drain beans and put everything in a large heavy pot

except the salt, in cold water covering all in the pot. Simmer, covered, for about 2 hours or until the beans are tender, adding water if necessary. Thicken with cornstarch, ( two tblsp to two tblsp. cold water, mix well then pour into the pot while stirring)

Serve over white rice, add salt to taste. Makes about 8 servings. Enjoy!

our favorite use for ham "scraps" is Ham & Beans. I soak the beans overnite then drain them. Put them in your cook pot and add the bits of ham, a medium onion, one bullion cube black pepper (no salt) a can of beer and, if needed, 1/2 pound of thin sliced bacon end & pieces. Cover with water alittle obove the level of the beans. Bring it to a boil then reduce to a slow simmer til the beans are done, about 3 hours. You want to keep an eye on the liquid level so they won't burn. You can freeze left overs. This is pretty good with cornbread and raw onion.

My favorite ham recipe is from Cooking light and is called Ham Tetrazzini. Basically: Ham, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, broth, milk, flour, noodles put in a pan/casserole, then covered with cheese and breadcrumbs and baked. Yummy!! grin

another thing we do with left over ham & beans is to heat them up while warming a flour tortilla. Wrap the ham & beans in the tortilla then brown it nicely on a griddle or in a frying pan, top it off with chili, grated cheese and onions or whatever a guy would like on it.

Ham salad. I make it in the food processer just add ham and sweet pickle relish grind up put in a bowl add mayo to desired consistancy and spread on your favorite bread or roll. I like mine best on toasted white bread.

I just made turkey spread the same way only used onions instead of pickle relish.

Good Eating!!!

Omlets or pizzas are 2 easy ways to use it up.

I also made up a ham, brocolli, and pasta dish in a white butter sauce that was really good.

Just boil the pasta and once it is almost done toss in the brocolli with the pasta to cook.

While that is going sautee some onions. Add equal parts butter and flour (about 2-3 tables spoons) and then add some chicken stock (just add enough to make the right amount of sauce) You can always add more butter or flour to get the right taste/consistency.

Cut up the ham into little pieces.

Toss the cook pasta and brocolli in a glass serving bowl, toss in the ham, cover with the sauce and stir it all together. Grate some parmessan cheese over the top and bake for 5-10 minutes at about 350.

Its a pretty flexible recipe and you can't really mess it up. Best of all its a quick meal to prepare when you get home from work.

I really like this, cut or dice up the ham and put it in a baking dish and a couple cans of cream of mushroom soup and a can of or package of frozen peas. Cover the whole thing with tatar tots and throw in the oven till hot and tots are brown. If you have any leftover turkey from thanksgiving throw that in with the ham and put in baking dish, i think it is very good

    • Great catch for that spot!  
    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
    • CM, what is Chi doing with Hossa?  If Parise can't go or only can give 75% why not shelf him like Chi did with Hossa and save that cap space.
    • Stealing this idea from the old "Meat Sales" thread, where people share info on great deals grocery stores are currently running. Since we're getting close to the hard water season, I thought we could create a thread where people can share any good deals on ice fishing gear or apparel. Anything goes, if you see a sale on ice fishing equipment and think others might be interested in it, let us know.
    • This is a common misconception with LTIR. I too, thought it meant we "saved" money until I read up on it recently. What LTIR actually allows is for a team to go OVER the cap during a player(s) on LTIR, but once they return, they have to get back under the cap. So, true, it would allow them to spend more, but over the long haul it wouldn't be something they could go out and get someone to fill in without haven't to do something when the LTIR players return.
    • Population is up in NW WI where I hunt public land for deer.  I see grouse every time I go to deer stands or scouting, which is much improved over even a couple years ago.  I just can't get one to stand still for a bow shot, they are very skittish over there.  
    • NW Wisconsin public land.  New scrapes started appearing mid last week.   A couple were freshly hit on Sunday when I was out.  None were very big.    Interestingly I did see a small 6pt buck in the open at lunch time while I was scouting spots, and based on the direction he was going he was working his way to a logging road that had a scrape and tracks on it.
