Having a ham on hand is always smart because it provides so many options. Typically less expensive per pound than beef and lamb, ham is sold in large pre-packaged portions, so you can't ask the butcher to cut it down. That's OK, because it freezes beautifully―just cube or chop it first. Then add it to quesadillas, stir it into mac and cheese, and use it to add substance to soups, salads, fried rice, and more.
