While digging around in the deep freeze this morning, I noticed a ham bone I had forgotten about.
Oh, the possibilities!
My first thought was to make a pot of pinto beans.
Then I remembered split pea soup, and checked the cabinet to see if I had any split peas.
Lunch is made now, and the Split Pea soup is divided for one meal today, one tomorrow. Or maybe I'll freeze tomorrow's and spread the pleasure (and gas) out by a few days.
Amazing how much meat is on a little ole ham bone. I imagine there was a cup-and-a-half. However, I weighed it once the bone was removed, and it was only six ounces. So I figured the sodium per serving at 650 or so grams... not great, but not terribly bad, either.
I do believe I'll go for a ride now; there's a bitter cold front headed our way Wednesday.
