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.

Yay for soup! And I'm sure you are NOT fat. Pregnant. MAJOR difference.

You are not fat! :) But love the soup, that sounds good! I always save ham as long as I can, I love it and don't have it that often!

That is hilarious...definitely was his way of saying "pregnant". I've never made soup with ham...maybe I'll have to try that out!

I tried not to take it too personally. I have a TON of ham. I set some aside for a sandwich tomorrow and some for Thursday. The rest went into two big bags in the freezer. To be enjoyed at a later date when my husband is actually in town.
