Lillian, How are you doing? Cooked ham can be stored in the refrigerator for 3-4 days at 40 degrees F or below. So slap that ham in the blackeyed beans and enjoy. For more Food Storage

Cooked meat can be refrozen as long as it is cooled before doing it. It is important to ensure proper hygiene while refreezing it so as to avoid food poisoning and the meat going bad.
Cooked meat can be frozen only that it is going to lose some moisture, but you can add some extra sauce when reheating it. Ensure that if the meat was originally fresh and then thawed, and later after refrozen again, this will not cause illness in any way. However, if it had been frozen, thawed and stays for a long time out of the freezer, it may spoil once taken back to the fridge.
