Easy One Pot Ham Dinner
- If you don’t have a garbage disposal, place a colander in your sink at the end of your meal before you rinse the dishes. Then all the food scraps are caught in the colander and you don’t need to clean out the drain.
- Keep baggies of frozen cookies and brownies in the freezer for kids’ or anyone’s lunches. Place the cookies or brownies in the lunch sack and, between them and a frozen drink, you don’t need to worry about the lunch staying nice and cold.

Those recipes sound good, and the tip to use a colander in the sink is a great idea. I never thought of that, so that tip is real timely and helpful. I was peeling fruits and vegetables the other day and wished I had a better way to handle the scraps, so now I do. Thanks.
I especially like the collander tip. I have problem in that area with stuff going down the drain. My husband thanks you too since he is the one that cleans out the drains! Have fun horseback riding. God Bless you all!
The ham dinner sounds great; the recipe doesn’t say but I’m guessing you slice the potatoes and lay them over the ham?
Yes you do Tanya. I fixed the recipe to make it clearer.
The ham dinner recipe also works great with pork chops.
can this ham dinner be all put in a crock pot as well please let me know, thank you
I have never done it in a crock pot but I don’t see any reason why you couldn’t.
I have a garbage disposal, but always backs up when peeling potatoes. Can’t wait to use the colander. Will help with clean up!
I make a Pork Chop Dinner using:
1 cup of Regular Rice
1 can of Mushroom Soup
1 1/2 cups Water
4-6 Porkchops (Browned)
Peheat oven 350 degrees. Brown chops. Mix Rice, Soup and Water in casserole dish. Top with chops. Bake 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Serve with Green Beans and applesauce.
Your recipe sounds delicious and so easy to make! Thanks for sharing. ~Lisa
This ham dish is close TO what I make, but I use hot dogs. I will have to try it with ham next time. Love all your great ideas from this site.
Good and simple meal for a widower.

Carl, there are lots of good and simple tips for widowers and widows here.
Can you use a different cream soup? My Significant Other hates mushrooms. :(
Yes you can Donna.
Ooh, celery would be good or tomato.
Cheddar cheese soup would work as well
I have never had a dishwasher.
Thank you for the colander tip. I have done it in the past, but will make it a habit before a meal in the future. I have also used the cheap
white indented filter drain inserts from the grocery store, or a classic one tilted to drain the water while catching scraps.
