I am so thnkful that Richard was raised in a vegitarian home because that makes dinner easy sometimes. I made a pot of black beans with the ham bone from thanksgiving and he viewed that as the meal... lol We added rice to the beans to make a heartier soup. it came out great! I am eating the leftovers as i type.
