Today we celebrated Palm Sunday and took home a big bag of leftovers from the suppah last night.

Tomorrow, I will use the leftover potatoes in the morning to make some fried potato bread and we will eat that with some homemade sausage and fried eggs and tomatoes.

Tomorrow night we will have a traditional Irish stew made with lamb.

Now that it's later in the day A favorite...

The great Gaels of Ireland
Are the men that God made mad
For all their wars are merry,
And all their songs are sad
-G.K. Chesterton

I will be enjoying the wonderful bean with potato and ham bone soup that my grandmother made for the family 50 years ago.

OK El, here it is but it takes a couple of days. And for you is included a wonderful meatless option (which is enjoyed by yours truly).

First my grandmom's basic recipie... which requires a hambone. And I believe the beans are "Navy" beans. So here it is. A bean (with potato) soup made by folks with Irish roots who were born in the late 1800's. (I don't know what they would think of my Bacos!)

Bean Soup
Soak 1 lb beans overnight.
Replace water to cover beans and hambone.
Cook 2 hours or until beans are mushy.
Add 3 medium potatoes; mash beans and potatoes after potatoes are cooked.
Add 1 cup chopped celery and 2 cloves minced garlic. Simmer one hour.
Take meat off bone and return meat to soup.
Add salt & pepper.
(Option add noodles during last hour.)

That's it. I don't remember noodles. This list is from a dear cousin. I recently made this (and did not include noodles) and it was amazing to taste something I had from 50 years ago. It was just as it was and just perfect... Wonderful!

A note... When I did the mashing step, I used an old masher, a flat slotted disk on a shaft and handle. The potatoes I added were cut into small pieces and after the mashing many potatoes chunks remained. I find the potato chunks in each spoonfull to be just perfect!

When I made this I did not use a hambone. I used Betty Crocker "Bacos" "chips" (larger pieces - not the smaller "bits"). This is a soybean flour smoke flavored product that is very convenient. I find the Bacos product to be superior. I use them when making my friend-pleasing red beans and rice or a quick BLT sandwich. For the recipe I used 1/2 cup Bacos chips plus 1/4 cup vegetable oil for fat.

I added the Bacos and oil to the presoaked and rinsed beans prior to the initial two hour cook time. After that everything in the recipe remains the same. The Bacos retain their quality and serve quiet well for the "meat off bone" from the original recipe and are good in the resulting soup.

When I made this I doubled everything with great results (and more for the freezer). I am getting close to the end of the initial batch and am going to make another with "Great Northern" beans instead. They appear similar but a little larger.

Hope you enjoy!

Lynn and I went for a pint (or four) to wash down our bangors & mash, bubble & squeak, and some fish & chips last evening. I am still stuffed from all of the potatoes.
