Just Asking

Is it considered bad taste to take the ham bone that your mother wrapped up and sent for your dogs, and use it to cook in a pot of beans?

Because it's not like she gnawed the meat off of that bone. She sliced the ham that she wanted, and her hands were clean, and she did wrap foil around that ham bone, unlike the turkey carcass that she just set on a paper plate and put in a Walmart bag, along with the foil-wrapped ham bone.

The dogs won't tell.

So, tell us, what are you going to cook with that turkey carcass? Ha!

Cook the beans!! The dog can have the bone after the beans have sucked all the goody out of it! What time should I be there .....

No. That's what ham bones are for. Humans first. Give it to the dogs after it's done its job in the beans.

I threw it to the dogs without thinking. I might have simmered it in a pot of turkey and noodles! But it didn't have as much meat clinging to it as the ham bone.

I gave the ham bone an hour-long swim in the simmering pot of beans. Then I removed it and tossed it out onto the snowy sidewalk for the dogs.

The corn muffins will be ready at 6:00. If your snow is all melted,
fire up that golf cart with its built-in radio, and chug on over to NotNambypambyland and join us.

Mommy Ann,
Well. Along with a lesson in not giving her daughter 4-year-old ranch dressing with Thanksgiving dinner, my mother apparently needs a refresher course on the proper hierarchy of ham bone usage.
