Soup's On

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

I'll even bring my own bowl..although yours is so
lovely. Thank you for the recipe...I don't recall
a more wintry Winter in TN, so your comfort brew
will hit the spot. Keep warm and mellow, Jo.

I'm not much of a soup person, but my sister makes a ham and bean soup very similar to this recipe. She loves it.

I'm not much of a soup person either, Jo, but I do love red beans and I've never had a 15 bean soup. Looks good!

It is a delicious looking meal. The soup sounds good on a cold day. I haven't eaten cornbread for years. I really like your dishes. I will keep driving east until I see your light.
