Ham and Veggie Soup

For Christmas we have a Honeybaked ham, not turkey. This past Christmas, instead of giving the ham bone to Hubby folks they suggested I keep it and make a soup. I thought it sounded like a good idea and knew I needed some recipe posts for my blog. So we kept it.

I hope you enjoy this – if you are vegetarian… sorry, you’ll have to come back for another recipe.
