(Bonus Video Included) 15 Bean Soup w/Leftover Holiday Ham & Bone

Hoping you all enjoyed your Christmas with your family and friends. We enjoyed our time with our kids and since they’re on winter break we’ll have many more days like this. Today I want to share with you what to do with that holiday ham and bone before you and your family get tired of it.  This meal isn’t necessarily for right after the holiday unless you want to cook it right away.  Otherwise throw it in the freezer and use this recipe for the day you take it out.

 

Ingredients you’ll need for this recipe:

1 Leftover ham & bone

1 Bag 15 Bean Soup (ham flavor packet will be added 30 minutes before serving our soup)

1 Medium Onion Diced

1 Lemon Squeezed (will be added 30 minutes before serving our soup)

32 oz. Vegetable Broth

32 oz. Water

2 Tbl Spoons Minced Garlic

***Don’t forget to put yo foot in it***

 

Tools:

Crockpot

 

Let’s get started (finish reading post or watch video directions)

 

We’re going to start by adding our hambone to our crockpot. Once the bone is added we’re going to rinse our beans and add them to the pot as well.

We’re rinsing our beans to make sure we remove any dirt and make sure there’s no foreign objects floating around.

Once your beans have been added to the crockpot, add in your diced onions and pour in your vegetable broth.  Your container of vegetable broth is 32 oz. so, once you’ve emptied the container fill it with water and pour that in too.  You’re more than welcome to use another container of vegetable broth, but since this ham and bone will add so much flavor, we can save the couple dollars and use some agua.

Now, add in your ham.  I’ve diced mine into small to medium size chunks.

Before we add the lid and turn on our crockpot we’ll add in the minced garlic.  Save the squeezed lemon and ham flavor packet for after it’s almost time to serve.

Now, we’re going to turn our crockpot on high for 6 hours *cue jeopardy music*

6 Hours Later

Add in your squeezed lemon juice from your lemon, the ham flavor pack, stir and allow to cook for 30 more minutes.

*cue jeopardy music*

Remove the bone and serve it over some rice or without and add some cornbread or your family’s favorite bread or dinner rolls.

Enjoy this remix on your leftover holiday ham and bone.

Mango Lemonade Drink

Oh how I love a refreshing drink on a hot summer day.  We have a little over a month before the first day of fall and I think we need to guzzle up all of the invigorating drinks before then.  Now, I hope you don’t think that you can’t enjoy these drinks in the fall too?  You can certainly add them to your upcoming Football Season Menu and serve them at your parties.

Today I’m sharing a Mango Lemonade Drink.  It’s quick, easy and all you need is a few ingredients.

You’ll need:

1 Can Sliced Mangoes (I placed mine in the freezer so that they would be nice and FROZEN)

1 Can Concentrated Lemonade Juice

A few sprigs of mint (Optional)

3 Cans of Water (Use the lemonade can)

1 Cup sugar (or add to taste if you’d like less sugar)

First we’re going to start off by adding our 1 Can of concentrated lemonade to our pitcher.

Next, were going to add our frozen mangoes and after we’ve added the mangoes, it’s time to added our 3 cans of water.

Stir everything well and now is your time to add in your sugar.  You’re going to stir it in before you begin to add the sprigs of mint if you choose to do so.  Stir everything in well and we’re going to place the drink in the fridge for 2-3 hours or more.  You may also decide to do this the day before an event or for dinner the following day.  The great thing about adding the mango and the mint and letting them set for hours, both get a chance to infuse the drink and give it a rich Mango Lemonade flavor with that hint of mint.

Once your drink has chilled either overnight or a few hours we’re going to remove it from the fridge.Since the drink has sat we’ll need to stir it up again before serving.

Let’s get ready to fill those glasses and share this refreshing drink with our love ones, family or friends.  Lemonade is one of our families favorite drinks, so I enjoy putting a twist on it whenever I can.  Hope your family and friends enjoy the Mango Lemonade as much as we have this summer.  Don’t forget, you can always add this to your Fall, Winter or Spring menu too. Enjoy

This past week our air conditioner went out.  I was suppose to cook this dish Tuesday, but there was no way I was turning on the oven.  No way.  Today, I was able to make this Enchilada Chicken Bake, a simple quick meal and so many things you can use to substitute these items if you don’t have them on hand.  Here’s what you will need to make this dish.

6 – 8 pieces of chicken tenders (cut them into strips)

1 Packet of Enchilada Sauce Mix

1 Yellow Bell Pepper ( cut into strips)

1 Green Bell Pepper (cut int strips)

1/2 Onion

1 tbl spoon Minced Garlic

Handful of Basil

Shredded Cheese

Preheat your oven on 375 degrees

Cut up and prep vegetables.

Lay chicken strips inside dish.  Depending on how much fat your chicken has on it make sure to remove it. I do leave a bit on for flavor.

Now, we’ll pour on the enchilada sauce mix and after we’ve done that mix it all together well.
