Egh. My fridge and freezer died two days ago and we were able to get a new one the same day...but most of the meat in the freezer was most of the way (if not all the way) thawed by the time we discovered the problem.
I kept everything that was still very cold and/or partially frozen, but I do not want to refreeze it, as I have heard it is not safe or affects the meat quality. Everyone suggested cooking it all and freezing it in meals. I like this idea because I am 8 months pregnant and it would be nice to have some meals I could pull out the first week I am home.
Obviously, I did not buy meat this week, LOL, so we can use some of this meat in our regular meals. I made several casseroles yesterday and froze some ground beef in one pound bags that I can put in meals later, but I have TEN POUNDS of ham that I have no idea what to do with but try to eat a lot this week. I also have about 4 more pounds of chicken, a pack of hot dogs, bologna, and a pound of sausage that I still need to use up.
Any suggestions? Especially about what to do with all this ham?!

Split pea soup..... really any bean soup is good with ham that is just my favorite. This you could freeze after making.
Ham and Au gratin potatoes.
Ham with pasta we usually do mushrooms, onions, parm cheese.
The ham I wouldn't really worry about refreezing if it was me. I will usually cook a big ham then freeze the leftovers in smaller packages for future meals and have never had an off taste issue.
