Today's dinner will be particularly satisfying because my Grammy and Papa are coming for dinner. They are amazing, I mean amazing!! Papa is so wise and funny Grammy is loving and kind and sweet and together they are just about perfect. My Grammy and I have been special friends practically since I was born. They are among my biggest blessings and I cherish all the time I get to spend with them. Plus they love my boys and isn't it great to be around people who genuinely love your children?
This is my recipe for Bean Soup, which is what I'm having today:
Mix together in a crock pot
1 Jar of Randal's white Beans
1 package of chopped ham (very cheap and can be bought near the lunch meat)
.5 Cup of Brown Sugar
A bunch of chopped celery (leaves included)
1 onion chopped
1-2 Cups (to your desired consistency) of chicken stock (which is way way better then chicken broth and the left overs can be stored in it's box-container for at least a week)
salt and pepper
Let cook all day and enjoy!!
