Of course I made soup with the leftover ham.
Ham, cabbage, kale, pinto beans (because I had 'em), onions, garlic, celery, corn. Bay leaf, thyme, pepper.
It was a little bland. Better on day 2, but still needed a little salt. I didn't salt it the first day because of the ham. Still, since the veggies were fresh and the beans were from dried and the veg bouillon was sodium free, I guess it still needed a little bit of salt.
I love leftovers. Tonight dinner was easy...soup and leftover cornbread, and I had 1/2 of a ham sandwich with avo and pickles. Very few dishes too. I really go as easy as possible when spouse is traveling, so I can spend more time with my kid. Tonight, we did homework and spelled out words and sentences during dinner. I'm not sure how I feel about the first sentence he wanted to write. I didn't really want to get into the difference between "pregnant" and "fat", especially since I've seen the size of my thighs lately.
