Greetings! I am not up to par. I have a sore throat and a bit of a runny head as a result of a diminished resistance from a drastic weather change and stress from my job. I really needed something comforting and warm to soothe my throat and my psyche. I had most of the ingredients to throw this together tonight so here we have quick and easy bean and bacon soup.
This can be made from your food storage using canned beans, canned stock or bullion and water, home canned bacon, home canned veggies or even dehydrated or frozen veggies. You decide what works for you and what you may have on hand. I have simply used some chicken stock, rendered bacon, canned great northern beans, celery, carrots, onion, garlic, bay leaf, thyme, marjoram and celery seed as well as some pink salt and pepper. I let the whole thing simmer for about 20 minutes and dinner was ready. We just ate this with some bread and butter. It was a hearty and satisfying and healthy meal that made everyone happy to sit down to dinner.
I hope that this gives you some ideas about how you can throw together a quick soup in the middle of the week from what you may have on hand. A little thought and a little creativity can supply you with a wonderful dinner in no time that will feed souls as well as bellies.
I hope you will try this and I hope you love it!
