White bean and ham soup

Let us say goodbye and good riddance to the cold and dreary days of winter. It's finally Spring weather and yes, I know my buddies in the southern hemisphere are having different weather conditions, but here...I am celebrating the last of the chilly weather with a hearty soup.

I surely won't have this one once it's hot and humid. Inspiration is from my friend in Carlucet France who, along with her lovely daughter, sent me a French care package.



Go pilfer your pantry and fridge and combine white beans, ham, onions, carrots, green beans and more. Obviously you can adjust ingredients according to taste. Make it hearty :-) It's getting warmer but our office conditions are still chilly so this makes a wonderful lunch. We bring along a bit of baguette and a yogurt - all set for the afternoon.

We are working in the garden and plan to replace some tomato plants that, unfortunately, died during a very unexpected frost. Here's to raising the glass for warmer weather that stays around.

I'll leave out the green beans if you dont mind Tina:) However, since it is a rainly dreary damp day here in PA, I may just need to consider this soup!

We can only dream of planting tomatoes up this way but at least it hasn't snowed in the past few days, lol...I'm beginning to wonder if April is going to be warm enough for any kind of planting.

Enjoy your soup and the dream of those tomatoes:) Thanks for sharing, Tina...Cheers!

It's not cold here but this soup definitely looks good to me--so comforting and full of goodies. ;-) Thanks for sharing it with Souper Sundays this week.
