Meal Planner Monday: Soups - Homemade Bean and Ham
This is one I made up myself. It is very inexpensive and also healthy...and yummy on a very cold winter day... Rinse and soak 2 cups navy beans covered in water overnight. Add: 6 cups water, 1/2 cup carrots, 1/2 cup celery, 1/2 cup onion, Leftover ham pieces or ham bone. You can also add (optional): 2 Tbsp. brown sugar, Garlic salt, (sprinkle to taste) Salt, (sprinkle to taste) Pepper, (sprinkle to taste) Bay leaf, Liquid smoke, (sprinkle to taste). Cook in crockpot several hours to blend flavors. Serve with warm homemade bread.
