Not really so much of a recipe per say, just good ole soup on a damp chilly day. I was kinda wet and cold when I came home from work, so I checked the fridge and pantry and came up with this:
1/2 bag of northern beans.
1/2 bag of navy beans. (both leftover from previous meals)
1/2 cup of barley.
1 medium yellow onion chopped.
3 carrots chopped.
3 stalks of celery chopped.
1/2 lb of white mushrooms sliced.
2 potatos cubed small.
1 can of tomatoes with green chiles.
6 cloves of garlic minced.
3 bay leaves.
1 tsp thyme.
1 Tbsp. chipotle powder.
Ground pepper to taste.
1 large ham bone with lots of meat attached.
1 qt. chicken stock.
1 qt. duck stock. (had both in the freezer from previous meals)
Method:
I chose the quick soak method for the beans, (bring to a boil for 2 minutes, cover remove from heat, soak for one hour)
Drain beans, add to pot with stock and ham bone, (meat removed).
Bing to a simmer for 1/2 hour. Add veggies and spices, simmer for 1/2 hour. Add barley, reserved ham meat and canned tomatoes, simmer 1/2 hour. Remove ham bone from the pot, pull any meat from the bone, chop meat and add back to the pot. Check beans and barley for tenderness.
Taste and adjust for seasoning.
Just good ole pantry and fridge soup

well dinner went out the window. So we ordered a thin crust pizza. I had 2 slices and on the side I had 2 small vine tomatoes sliced with cubes of mozz dressed with EVOO, salt, pepper, fresh basil and my herb and spice grinder and 1/2 cup orange juice.

( BTW my 2 hour after the meal sugar was 107)

Even though it was a bit drizzly out, I cooked up some Italian turkey sausages outside on the grill, & we had them on rolls with all the "fixins" & a side of baked beans.

Just finished baking some chicken breasts for tonight to go with some leftover potato salad. I try to cook in the morning if I have to work late, it keeps me from eating junk just because I'm tired.
