Thrifty Ham Soup
Friday, Anna and I ran into Country Fresh Meats in Weston. My friend Linda was working and told me about the $3 sale section. There were packages of "ends and pieces" of different items like pork chops, sausage and ham. I bought some of the packages and came up with this delicious soup for pennies. I bought these 2 for $6.
I diced up the ends and pieces and browned them in a pan.
I diced up potatoes, carrots, celery, onions and garlic. Once ham is heated through put into a large kettle. Then put diced veggies into same pan and heat through. Add a cup of water to bring up the bits of ham goodness stuck to the bottom.
Put all into the kettle and add water to cover. I also added some kidney beans. Heat till soft.
Serve with some warm biscuits. Super easy, inexpensive and delicious!
