This is the first time ever cooking them but I've seen them in the stores for years. I didn't use the prepackaged pack of ham/salt flavor for fear of it being loaded with chemicals that I don't need.

It's really a good heavy soup, I kicked up the spice and it's really nice. The smoked neck bones added a nice flavor and I'm sure it would be just as good with smoked sausage or smoked ham hocks.

The instructions called for a can of diced tomatoes but I didn't have any and I wasn't sure if tomatoes would make it better, to me it would be more like a chili.

Here's what I bought. http://hurstbeans.com/

Rajun, that chili looks awesome! I'm going to have to try that recipe!

We bought a large bone in ham at Aldi's this week. They called it a half ham in their weekly ad on the Aldi's app. The price was $1.69 per lb., but when you check out, it lowers the price to $0.96 per lb. I paid a little more than $8.00 for a pretty large, pre-sliced ham. When I removed the ham from the bone, it filled five quart sized zip lock bags. We had some with our country breakfast, dinner last night It was delicious. The bone was frozen for use with a pot of beans the next time I cook beans. That really seems like a good deal to me and it will provide many meals and ham sandwiches.


Aldi's has some really good holiday season products right now. They are not all on special, but they are really good tasting. Many of them are special cheeses like port wine cheddar and cranberry or blueberry rolled goat cheese. I could live on cheese and crackers.

I'm looking up broccoli chicken casserole recipes that are at least somewhat different from the ways I've cooked them. I found one that doesn't have rice or tortillas in it. Instead it calls for boxed stuffing https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/...ken-casserole/ I'll use fresh steamed broccoli instead of the frozen type. Maybe add some chopped onion and bell pepper too.

Now, if I can talk Jan into trying something different out - I'll cook it.

I dont have the energy to cook, warm up or eat anything right now.
For about 3 or 4 days I lived on a bag of Frito's corn chips, fruit cake and saltine crackers.
I honestly think a person could live on the fruitcake I made for days on end and never get tired of it.
Tried a can of clam chowder and it tasted like fishy dish water.
