Diggin them bones


Mrs. Roy was reminded again of how much of a maniac she can be.  There was a bowl of leftover ham bones and scraps following a dinner at church Wednesday night.  Someone commented that would be a feast for someone’s dog.  Mrs. Roy spoke up that she could make some killer soup with those ham bones.  Secretly, I was also thinking I could probably salvage enough actual ham to make a big bowl of ham salad, then make a pot of beans with one soup bone and a pot of ham and potato soup with the other one.  Sometimes, the bones are the best part of the meal.

I don’t know who took the bowl of scraps home but I sure hope someone did.  This experience gives me a flashback to Thanksgiving a couple of years ago when my brother threw out the turkey carcass after dinner.  I wanted to cry, just thinking about the turkey noodle soup we wouldn’t be having.  It’s times like these that I wonder if I’m the only one out there who thinks like this.

Well, except for Mr. Roy.
