And, No, becoming a better cook is NOT one of my New Year's resolutions!!!
I did however want to cook up something nice and hearty for our New Year's Day chow-down. Since neither Hubby nor I care very much for black-eyed peas - that glorious southern tradition - I decided to cook up a big pot of Bean and Ham soup!
You can't see the beans here because all the veggies have risen to the top :) But they are there! I soaked them for hours and then put them in the crock pot with broth, ham bones with nice chunks of ham ready to fall off into the soup, potatoes, celery, onion ...... Add some steaming hot yeast rolls fresh from the oven..... Ummmmm - we are going to be eating GOOD tonight!!!
And just so you don't begin to think this is a cooking blog (LOL!!!), I thought I'd show you what showed up on my doorstep yesterday afternoon.....
Sizzix had a super sale at the end of the year and I picked these two dies up for 65% off!!! That's surely got to count toward making 2014 a money-saving year, right?
Hugs & Blessings!
