When Life Gives You… Make Delicious Soup!
It’s April 15, 2020, and we’ve been over a month now in our Stay-at-Home – Covid-19 Situation. I am grateful that we are all well and we have food to eat.
I’ve been trying to keep our grocery shopping trips to a minimum, so it’s been a bit of a game, especially at dinner time, figuring out what we can make.
Easter this year was a little different too – our usual party of 30 with a giant bone-in ham was pared down to a party of 4. We did video chat with our cousins while eating, this is apparently called at “Virtual Dinner Party.” For our dinner, we had the smallest ham I could find, it was boneless and pre-sliced.
We’re not huge ham eaters, but we do enjoy a few traditional slices as part of our Easter celebration. After the celebration, I like to make ham and bean soup – here’s how I made it this year, with our leftover boneless ham slices. I’ll try to give lots of notes and options in case you need to make some substitutions too.
I love to top my soup with a spoonful of this tasty pesto!
