They had ham on sale, so I decided to go for it.  Again, I attempted scalloped potatoes, the bane of my existence!  Since Hannah was home I had her put the ham in at 1:00 and then put the scalloped potatoes in at 3:30.   Why I keep trying to make scalloped potatoes, I’ll never know!

Well, just before 5:00, Hannah calls me and says that the scalloped potatoes “are boiling over” and burning the bottom of the stove.  She took the lid off and said “it looks like butter in water, so I had to pour some of the water out so it wouldn’t boil over again.” 

NOOOO!!!  I told her to just leave them out.  Well, when I got home, this is what I was faced with:

watery mess!
watery mess!

So I dumped off the watery mess into a pot and brought out my trusty friend:

thickened my sauce wonderfully!
thickened my sauce wonderfully!

I poured the thickened sauce over the potatoes (which were cooked!) and added a bit more cheese and put it under the broiler:


  • 4 ounces ham
  • 1 cup scalloped potatoes
  • 1 cup green beans
526 calories, 23 fat,  


And I got lots of leftovers!  I plan on making ham macaroni and cheese for me and Hanners later in the week and probably black bean ham soup with the ham bone.
See you at breakfast!
