I love a lazy Sunday, when I spend the whole day cooking and blogging. My husband is into the playoff games so I have made some "manfood" for him. About 2 weeks ago we had a great ham and I still had the bone, so I have made him "12 Bean Soup". I am not so into Bean Soup so I am making a pork chop recipe from Giada and Steamed Lemon Custard, green beans and a great salad.
Today is my son's Birthday. He is at Vero Beach on a Babymoon. We love Vero Beach..there are great restaurants there. I thought it would be good for him and his wife to go away for a nice relaxed weekend before the big event.
It is about 8 degrees here..but the sun is shinning.
Here is the recipe for the Man Soup...
2 cups beans from Bob's Red Mill 13 Bean Soup Mix
which I soaked overnight..
Then I added the great Ham Hock I had form the ham I had cooked two weeks ago.
2 1/2 qts water brought this all to a boil and then let it simmer for 4 hours.
I then added 1 can of tomatoes crushed. ! tbsp chili powder and two garlics minced
It is simmering until there is a break in the action and Randy is ready to eat.
I will let you know if it is...great!!!!
