Help! How Can I Use Up Holiday Ham?

Good Questions

Q: I have a question about holiday leftovers. I know dozens of ways to use turkey, but what about ham?

My husband picked one up on a truly amazing post-Christmas sale, but I don't really use ham outside of the occasional sandwich and I'm at a loss. Help?
