I just got a pot of soup going. It has 20 different varieties of beans celery, onions. carrots, tomatoes and many different spices. It has been a while since I made some soup so that I'd brew some up. Another soup I love is barley soup and home made vegetable soup.

Any favorite dish you like to prepare and love to eat??

"beans, beans the magical fruit..."

We love homemade soup. Our favourites are: beef barley, green pea with ham, chicken noodle and turkey noodle.

I don't throw away the bones from a cooked chicken or turkey. I toss them in the freezer for when I want to make soup. I also keep ham bones for the same purpose.

It's cold enough here today for a nice pot of homemade soup.

Lol! Yep could be a noisy few a days. I don't save the bones but I was brought up with soup made that way. Seems like so many things get lost through time. That is a great idea and I will try to remember saving some bones for soup.
