It's been cold and rainy here the past couple of days and it made me crave a dish that my mom made in the winter time when I was growing up. White Lima Soup has to be the easiest soup to make that doesn't come out of the can. Buy a bag of the dried large lima beans. Rinse them and soak them in warm water for about 2 hours or so. When that's done, take a large pot and add ham bits (I don't know exactly what they're called people! It's a pack of chopped/diced ham bits), the beans and cover them with water and some chicken stock. Bring it to a boil and then let it simmer for another 1-2 hours until the beans are tender but not mush! Add some S&P and call it a meal! For a little more protein I brown up some turkey Kielbasa sausage. And to make it extra comfort food, I make corn bread muffins. And yes I'm talking the 5o cent Jiffy box mix of corn bread muffins. It's the simple things in life people!
