Closing 2010

The bag of dry mixed beans have soaked.  They are now simmering in the crock pot with a 100_1769.KDC rather large ham bone, a bit of meat and juices left over from our Christmas feast we cooked for Jeff’s mom, who is now unable to cook for her family.

The cornbread will be made in time for lunch and cooked in a small bit of canola oil in the black cast iron skillet in the oven.  Thin crispy cornbread is what Jeff likes.

This will be the wind up meal for 2010.  (We’ll do leftover’s for supper.)  We’ve not missed a single meal unless it was by choice.  Thank YOU Jesus.
