Easter Leftovers

Mr. Lawyer and I have been eating a lot of yummy ham (thanks Mrs. T!). We've had a variety of delicious sandwiches with combinations of Cabot cheddar cheese, Grandma Nancy's awesome pickles and horseradish sauce.
mmmm look at those pickles and that ham!
So tonight it was time to spice it up a bit. I made a maple glaze to add more sweetness to the already glazed ham and candied sweet potatoes.
For a last minute winging it dinner it came out pretty well...even if it was just throwing a maple syrup concoction on some ham slices and warming it up in the oven. We finished it off with some Cake Batter Ice Cream and some addicting crack cookies Amanda brought over. Oh! There were also some amazing olive rolls that Amanda added to dinner. They were amazing and I think they'd be great with some turkey and pesto.
Maple Glaze
3/4 cup real maple syrup
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
5 whole cloves (I only had powdered)
1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained (optional) (I just added a splash of juice to the mix)
1. Whisk together the maple syrup, vinegar and dry mustard.
2. Score the ham, brush on glaze and continue to brush as it bakes.
3. If desired, insert whole cloves into the ham before glazing and coat ham with pineapple after first glazing.
