My dad’s recovery from hernia surgery isn’t going so well. I’m headed there to keep him company, play cribbage, get schooled in checkers, watch movies. Keep him from doing too much, too soon. 

I could use soup recipes to try while there. Nothing too complicated or too weird. He’s a beans and franks kind of guy. I have a hambone left over from thanksgiving I’ll probably make into beans and cornbread.

Where are you gonna be when you make me jealous with your alternate home cooking?

I usually make split pea soup with leftover ham/bone.   I sometimes make a bean soup with the same base.  

The base is simple, boil the bone & remove and pick the meat. Add chicken stock or bullion & more water, carrot, onion, celery, beans or peas & the picked meat.  I also add nutmeg to my pea soup. I always use dried beans and do soak them all day first, not the peas tho.  You have to let the pea soup simmer until the peas break down.  The bean soup is ready when the beans soften.

i usually make soup once a week as it's quick & easy.
