Slow Cooker Saturday: Ham and Bean Soup
I find that this is a great soup to make with leftover ham. This past Christmas I cubed all the leftover ham we didn't eat sandwiches with so that it would be ready to use in Ham and Bean Soup and Split Pea Soup (coming later!) You won't actually be reading this post until much later because of my post scheduling. Think ahead for your Easter Ham or maybe just a Sunday Ham that you might have leftovers from. Great recipe for clean eating too!
