Cookin and Lookin

September 28, 2010 - Dorma Tolson
Football, fall and food

The cooler fall weather brings the return of comfort foods and of course, football!! I'm an Ohio State grad, so needless to say, at my house, we're avid Buckeye fans. Game day brings out the best in my easy and convenient cooking skills. Who wants to slave all day over the stove when your favorite team is on? Here's a couple of easy recipes which graced our half-time table at the Tolson household:

Barbecued ham

1 cup of kethcup 1/2 cup of brown sugar 1 Tbsp. mustard 1 Tbsp. vinegar (apple cider works best; My original recipe calls for 2 Tbsp. of vinegar, but we found that to be too strong, so I cut it in half) 1/2 cup of water 1 1/2 pound chipped chopped ham

Mix the first five ingredients in a slow cooker (be sure to use those handy slow cooker liners for easy cleanup). Then stir in your ham. Separate the ham into thin slices and make sure the sauce covers each piece. Cook in crockpot on high for 1 1/2 hours. Don't overcook or it becomes rubbery and loses most of its flavor.

Along with the barbecued ham we had homemade potato soup.

Potato soup

6 to 8 medium potatoes, thinly sliced like potato chips One medium onion, sliced or chopped One can of cream of celery soup 1/4 pound of cubed ham 2 Tbsp. parsley flakes 1 stick of margarine or butter 5 cups of water Instant potato flakes 1 can of evaporated milk

Stir first 7 ingredients into a large pot and cook over medium heat until potatoes and onions are tender. Then add the can of milk and stir in the potato flakes until the soup reaches the desired consistency. Enjoy and Go Bucks!

Does your family have any traditional game day recipes you'd like to share?
