Week of the Ham

Hi!!! Want to know what one of the perks of living at my address is??

Yep, ham. 

I live where my mom & dad used to live, and where all the Christmas hams used to be delivered. Some of the companies didn't get the address change... so we still end up with 1 or 2 hams! Don't tell Mom & Dad!! Oh, oops!

Yes, that is a lot of butter & sour cream on my potato. That's how I like it! :) Good and buttery.

Today I made ham & bean soup with some of the leftovers. It wasn't bad for ham & bean soup. Its never my favorite, but this was yummy, specially with the snow falling. Made soup fitting. 

If you view the link you will be brought to
Allrecipes is one of my favorite sites to browse. 

This soup was hearty and tasty... although I didn't have brats on hand, but had some Italian turkey sausage. Thought it'd be an easy substitute, but I wasn't a big fan. Aaron couldn't tell and thought it was great. Too "spicy" for me. The brats would have been more "laid back & easy" in the soup.
It really was worth the work, I probably will make this again with brats. :) 

I'll be back soon with a super easy potato soup recipe. You think I'm joking, right? I'm not. And it has ham. We still have more in the fridge. :) And I'm also hosting Sunday dinner tomorrow for the fam. We have a HUGE pork loin to share, so I'm making that 2 ways with cauliflower gratin. Can't wait!!


  1. Do you think you could package this up and send some to Kansas. It looks so tasty right now! =) Miss you

  2. Oh bummer... we just finished the left overs yesterday!! :) Haha.
