Your way sounds so much easier Goat!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pot pie is <i>supposed</i> to be easy! You throw leftovers together into a pie crust... The only trick is knowing how to get it the right consistency so it won't be too dry or too runny. Gravy is perfect, especially a thick one like I made for the turkey, because it has a lot of flour to keep things from getting runny.

Coffee Glaze! That's a great idea!

I often make a red-eye gravy to go with ham steaks, and it goes very well, but I never thought of using coffee for a glaze!

Do you thicken it before glazing? Seems like you need something to make it stick. I think, off the cuff, I would try dumping a cup of sugar into a pan full of coffee, and boiling it for 10 minutes or so so the sugar starts to make a thin candy.

Coffee Glazed Ham

7lb shank or rump end, fully cooked smoked ham
Glaze:
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup maple flavor pancake syrup
2 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tbsp Worcester sauce
t tbsp instant coffee granules
1 tbsp dry mustard

Heat oven to 325
Cut rind off ham to expose fat and place on rack. Cover loosely with foil and bake for 1 hour 15 min.

Stir glaze ingredients until coffee dissolves. Brush on ham.
Bake uncovered for 40-60 minutes brushing occasionally with the glaze. Cook until internal temp reaches 140. Let ham rest 15 minutes before slicing.


YUM!

VC- Wow! Filet and king crab on the same day? Did you strike oil up there or something? Black gold? Texas tea? (OK, I love old TV shows. :-))

Much simpler fare here. Made my "almost famous" macaroni & cheese. Almost famous cuz most people that I serve it to ask for the recipe. Just that and some salad. The mac n cheese makes enough for 2 dinners plus lunch for ever hungry spouse.

In the winter months, my crockpot gets a pretty good workout. Today we had a pot of navy beans with Echrich smoked sausage sliced up in it. Made a pan of cornbread when I got home and we called that dinner. It was very, very good.

I had half an hour to cook and feed the kids before we went to boy scouts tonight... So I made beef-a-roni... AND I MESSED IT UP!

Instead of making a nice cheese sauce with butter, flour, milk and shredded cheese, I decided to save time by just stirring cheese and milk into the macaroni. Well it was dry and the kids didn't like it.

Sheesh. I'm glad I don't take myself too seriously

Yeah Mikey------gotta hate the slop I eat huh? LOL........well got in a fight with the dude so never did make the elite food......I did not splurge for the Alaskan King Crab legs by the way........dude spent almost $50 for them?????? 4 legs????? Not me......nope........Texas Tea? Asta, my friend you are dating yourself!!!! lol.....said Jed Clampett. Btw....want your mac and cheese recipe.....I will have to make it gluten free....rice noodles instead.

Parent, sloppy joes sound rather awesome!!!!
Suki, navy beans sound good with corn bread.......my old dude used to make that.....I always tried to tell him to put onions in...or bacon.....he never went for it.......still good tho.

Way to go Goat........screwing up something easy? Are you losing your touch??????? HAAAAAAAAA

Oh, I definitely put onions in my navy beans along with a can of rotel tomatoes with green chilis. I usually put either bacon or salt pork in there too, but this time I went with the Echrich Smoked Sausage. Flavor, flavor, flavor.
