Left over of pumpkin pie filling and mashed potatoes

I had no pumpkin pie filling and mashed potatoes leftover this year. I made pumpkin cookies from pumpkin pie filling. They didn’t look perfect but tasted good. I made potato pan cake and potato bread from mashed potatoes.
Here is my premature version of recipes which probably needs to revisit and test:

1 cup water
3Tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
1 ⅓ Tbsp sugar
1 ½ cup bread flour
½ cup Whole wheat flour
2tsp active yeast
Cooking instruction using bread maker
1. Add all ingredients to bread maker
2. Set dough setting and start bread maker
3. After dough is done, punch the dough down and flour the dough to prevent to stick to the hand.
4. Divide the dough to two and make elongated or round shape
5. Set on loaf pan or pan and final rise until the loaf is double about one hour
6. Preheat oven to 375 degree and bake 30 minutes or until done.

In addition to these left over, I had large portion of ham with bone. I created soup stock and made blackeye bean and ham soup. Soup was full filling and delicious with home made bread.
