We are bring It’s What’s For Dinner back after a hiatus. Every day I’ll be posting a recipe inspiration for dinner. Something I found that fits one (or more) of the following requirements..

  • Frugal
  • Family Friendly
  • Seasonal

I still have some leftover ham from Christmas that I tossed in the freezer. I was going to make some soup with it but when I spotted this recipe I thought that it sounded better to me. It is a great recipe to use up some leftover ham!

So what’s for dinner tonight?
