New Year's Ham Bone Soup

Goodness's been since November 12th that I've posted on this blog!!  How can that be??

Well I started working part time and the holidays hit.  All at once.

Still working part time, but the holidays are over and it's a new year so we'll see what I can pull off.

In another world, on another blog I had posted about my appreciation for the first few days of January.  I still feel that way.

I like the quiet of January.  I like the clean slate of January.  I like being able to start over and have another chance to "get it right".  And I have a whole year to work on it.

Now, this being a food blog, January is the month to get back to basics.  After all the treats, all the dinners out, all the sugary sweets (some of which still sit on my kitchen counter) January is the time to start over.  To eat right.  To remember the veggies.  The bone broths.  The fermented foods.  It's a time to get back on track.  And that's a good thing.

For tonight's dinner we had Ham Bone Soup.  It's a New Year's day tradition around here.  We have ham for Christmas, all sorts of ham leftovers through the week and then it makes it's final appearance on New Year's Day, the grand finale as Ham Bone Soup.   Go here for the recipe.

  1. mmm....I love this kind of soup. I cook mine with pinto beans and we call it "soup beans." Perfect for a cold day!
