So this takes awhile because, well.... it's beans and they take some time, but it's so easy peasy as to be ridiculous and the family loved, loved, loved it...
I bought the soup mix somewhere. Zarpentine's Farm Market, maybe? Or somewhere in my travels, scouting out sweet settings for books. There's nothing like playoff time and cold winter Sundays to have soup brewing... bread baking.... and a cozy nap by the fireplace is never a bad thing!
Yup. A hank of bone and bits and pieces... But I grabbed me a plateful of pieces to use for the soup. "Waste not, want not...." Use it up, make it do, wear it out!
Okay, back to soup:
This is part of why I love winter. One pot meals, extra writing time, peace and quiet. Around here there is nothing akin to peace and quiet in the summer.... which I LOVE but.... I love this, too.
All is calm. All is bright. And I've got a blanket.!!!
