Easter Sunday

I hope you all had a glorious Easter. We did! We had a beautiful morning at church, with no baby crying for once! Andrew excitedly made a connection with today's Scripture reading, always a sweet moment.I was lucky enough to host Easter lunch after church--lots of good food, family, and sunshine, despite the chill.
Since my table is small, I generally let guests help themselves to a buffet lunch. I'm still learning how best to arrange things here. Having lived with tiny kitchens, all this counter space is a blessing I *truly* appreciate!
Now, to Google for soup recipes that use a ham bone...

Also.... I do so like the framed print of birds you have propped on your counter. I passed one by at a resale shop a while back, and regret not purchasing it. Do you know the artist? Or any "tracking info"? Thanks!

Happy Easter to you and it looks like you had a great day. What a blessing for you!

For your ham bone:

Place bone in large stock pot.

Pour in a 97 cent bag of lentils.

Chop in an onion.

Pour in water to almost cover the bone.

Boil for an hour or too - et voila, enjoy your lentil soup.

You can pull the bone out just before serving and chop off little bitsies of ham to float around in it.

My husband always puts a schploop of sour cream on his soup.

Everyone loves it.

This looks great! The food is all so beautiful. I always love making split pea soup with leftover ham bones.

What a lovely lunch it looks like you had!

I recommend this recipe for your ham leftovers. I use the ham bone to make stock in the crock pot and use that instead of the water and chicken bullion.
