MORE HICKORY is HERE!!!
Yay!! Today arrived my 4 boxes of pears (12 in ea box). This was an unapproved by me substitute since I ordered the KING box (2 of them) I need to calculate to see if I got a good deal. I also got one of the gift sets. Lots of sausage & cheese! My daughters are showing it off. The pears are ridiculously juicy and my family thought they taste marvelous! I froze one ham from my hams I previously received. I have been cutting up the other into various slices/dices/pieces to use in recipes this month and next (and freeze).
Tonight I used about 4 slices of ham(there are well over 30 in the ham) to make cabbage soup. I had 3/4 of a head of cabbage, sliced about 7 baby carrots into discs, threw into about 4 cups of water, added a can of chix broth, a sprinkle of frozen diced onions, a 1/2 cup of frozen corn, some pepper, a bay leaf and some lemon pepper (daughter requested) and a dash of salt. I cooked in my pressure cooker on high for 10 minutes and let it rest for 20. It was FABULOUS!!! Yummy and cheap! The girls loved it!
