Wednesday:) What’s Cookin’ Miss Toni? TOni’s Ten Bean Soup

4 Apr

“Life is delicious. Waste not one bite!”

A.D. Posey


When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade, right? When your friends invite you to dinner on Easter, and are going to throw out their left over ham bone, you say…”Stop, I can make soup!”

My big problem is I love to cook and bake. It’s a problem for me, but not for my friends and neighbors, and local firemen, and let’s see, Desra the mail lady, the guys who mow my lawn…and the list goes on. So when I get in those moods, I cook, I bake, and I share.

Another big problem I have is I tend to get carried away. This tiny little ham bone and a few slices of ham turned into two huge pots of Toni’s Ten Bean Soup. Really, the soup packet, given to me by a friend, had my name on it.

Of course, the ingredients were enough to only make a few cups of soup. NO!!! So, I boiled the ham bone and pieces of meat and added tons of other ingredients. To the bean mixture, I added a bag of carrots, an entire stalk of celery, eight potatoes, a couple of onions, a can of Rotelle tomatoes with diced chilies, and a few extra cans various beans.

Well, it made a few gallons of soup. I shared with a few neighbors, and have plenty to take to my senior art group at Towne Creek on Friday.

      Oh, that sounds yummy. I’m going to try some Parmesan on my soup. Maybe some crusty French bread, thanks.
