Ham bone soup invention
In the line of using up what we have on hand, I took the ham bone from the ham last weekend, added a large onion, approximately ten new potatoes chopped in bite size pieces, as many carrots as I could bear to peel and chop (I always peel store bought carrots.....I know you don't have to......), four stalks celery, and one winter squash steamed then scooped out and added to the soup. Our neighbor could not stop raving about it so I figured I would share. I never tackled adding spices as I was actually not home to eat this meal and needed to scoot out the door. Moral of the story here? Winter squash goes with everything. Throw out your cook books and keep throwing stuff in. How can it not work?????
