This adorable photo is of our youngest grandchild, Jethro. His mama took the picture and I couldn’t resist sharing. I didn’t make the hat – it was in a hand-me-down container of clothes he received.
The bone was still frozen when I placed it into a pot with coarsely chopped veggies.
Bring to a boil,
large ham bone, preferable with some meat still attached
8+ cups water to almost cover
2 large carrot, sliced into large chunks
2 large onion, quartered
4 stalks celery, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup fresh parsley
1 bay leaf
No need to add salt
Gently simmer ham bone with carrot, celery, onion, parsley, bay leaf, peppercorns, and water in a large pot for 2 hours. Let cool and strain, pulling off usable meat and discarding the solids.
When the days are hot and the kids are bored making a pitcher of summertime lemonade is a fun activity!
Dogs… man’s best friend. This one is my best friend. His name is Raider and he is a miniature schnauzer. He is an important part of our family showing unconditional love, loyalty, and companionship each and every day.
Last spring, our township removed a large tree from the curb edge that had been in decline for several years. In the fall, they took out most of the stump leaving a large mound of wood chips.
i leave you with one last photo from someone who usually (successfully) does many things at one time…
