Ham and Bean Soup II
Have been making this soup for years. Here are my changes. I use more veggies and use the quick cook recipe for the beans. I don't cook the beans when I'm boiling the ham bone. I wait until after the ham bone is picked of ham and I strain the water. I then return the broth to the pot with the beans and then cook the beans seperately. I also add a bay leaf and some ketchup at the end. It seems to add more flavor that some people are complaining about. It was my mom-in-laws suggestion. Other than that, my favorite bean soup.

Green Grape Salad
When I made this recipe the first time, I didn't have a whole package of cream cheese, so I used about a half package (4 oz.) and the dressing was more like a real dressing. This time I had a whole package and used it all and dressing was very stiff and truthfully didn't taste as good as the first time. Next time, I will use less cream cheese to have more of a real dressing. I also used light cream cheese and sour cream, splenda and splenda brown sugar.
