Hobbit Days

As with much of the nation we are experiencing a blast of cold winter weather.
It's predicted for much of the coming week, so hearty soups are the go-to meal of the day.

I've made a fifteen bean soup today, chocked full of country ham, celery, onions, tomatoes, carrots, garlic, and chili spice.
Served with a slice of buttermilk cornbread, it's the ideal comfort food, on a blustery cold day.
Come join us for a bowl.
We'll leave the light on for you ! 

If you feel like making your own pot, here's the original recipe.

  • 1 lb. smoked sausage, ground sausage (browned in pan), ham hocks or diced ham. Our favorite is to use a leftover hambone with some meat on it.

  • 1 pkg of Hurst 15 Beans
    1 lg. onion, diced
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 tsp chili powder (optional)
    1 can diced tomatoes (15 oz.)
    Juice from 1 lemon
    Bay Leaf

  • I also add:  

    Two stalks of celery
    Three cubed potatoes 
    Two sliced carrots
  • Optional: Hot sauce or crushed red pepper to taste

Looks delicious! I've never made this soup, but did check out the site...
Did I miss it or did you not mention "beans" in your recipe?

It looks so delicious. I like the creativity to the recipe, adding as many kinds of beans that you can find. Buttermilk cornbread sounds good too. Pretty dishes.
