soup from bones
new year and new beginnings. who doesn't like that? but, do we have to start over? or can we begin again. from where we left off?
can we take all we've learned and experienced and use it to begin....right here, right now?
that's what i'm doing. no resolutions. no big fan-fare. just quietly scooping up all i've learned, gained and experienced to make further progress.
do you know what works for you....and what doesn't? are you willing to let go of what isn't working this year?
what works for me? starting the year with a big pot of soup on the stove and my big family to share it with. it's a tradition--17 years, now. making soup from bones. a black bean and ham soup. our christmas eve honey baked ham bone in particular. then lots of yummy ingredients. it simmers all day. the recipe is right here. it's an evening of family, good food and games every new year's day. that works for me. taking something wonderful from last year and bringing it into the new year. soup from bones--something from nothing.
