Sheesh!!

21,502 days old...I guess time does fly!!!

Our Xmas was really kind of dull. Uncle Tommy did NOT pass out in the mashed potatoes this year!!! Pat and i are coming down with a bug so we called it quits early. We did have a great early xmas with stepdaughter and family on Friday tho.

New Year will be better...don't know how yet, but I am determined to use my "days" more wisely

Great to have you back Joyce, sorry bout the cane Jamie, I misplace mine all the time but people don't want a cane covered in pink flowers I guess cause it always comes back-lolHave a quiet dayall

Hi, Everybody,

Yesterday was an unusual Christmas for me, but wonderful! My family came over and made a delicious ham and potato soup (only 195 calories per serving-really very good and tasty.) I thought I might share it with you for those who like a new, delicious flavor:

Ingredients:

3 1/2 cups peeled and diced potatoes (Idaho)
1/3 cup diced celery
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
3/4 cup diced, cooked ham
3 1/4 cups water
2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1 teaspoon ground white or black pepper, to taste
5 tablespoons butter
5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups milk

Directions:

1. Combine the potatoes, celery, onion, ham and water in a stockpot. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the chicken bouillon, salt and pepper.

2. In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour with a fork, and cook stirring constantly until thick, about 1 minute. Slowly stir in milk as not to allow lumps to form until all of the milk has been added. Continue stirring over medium-low heat until thick, 4 or 5 minutes.

3. Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook soup until heated through. Serve immediately.

How many does it serve? I don't know! There was enough for three adults, two small grandchildren and some left over for me for soup today!

I'm glad we all came through the holiday with everything in tact!
 
Ahem, about my age: can't face that.  So happy to see you posting again, Joyce.

Take care.

Great I.G.

It's 'copied and saved' and I'm really looking forward to trying the soup (and your directions were perfect!)

You got a chuckle from me Karen, love it.

When I was young I was called 'JOY'... so perhaps Jump for Joy should be my 'user' name.

(see you tomorrow...with some more useless facts.)
