I don't know about you, but our fridge is still full of yummy holiday leftovers! We had enough ham to feed a small army, so I decided to whip up a few batches of soup for us to enjoy! It turned out that I needed to drop off dinner for a friend, and had plenty to do so....this batch makes quite a lot! I didn't follow a specific recipe, but just created it out of things we currently had in our fridge and pantry. It turned out great, even the kids thought it was delicious (although the spinach was picked out of their portions.) Give it a try - and let me know if you do!
