Personal Notes:
Another great memory was having a ham dinner at Grandma Rose Johnson knowing that the next day we would get bean soup. She always used the bone, leftover ham pieces and fat to add flavor to the soup.
Many add onion, carrots etc. but she just used beans and meat served with homemade bread. This soup is creamier the next day.
