 i am not one to usually make lunch...i snack on some nuts and sometimes forget the kids need to eat something normal.  i saw this on the back of a Bush's White Northern Beans can and actually had the ingredients!

put some good olive oil in a dutch oven.  the recipe calls for bacon, but of course i didn't have any, so i chopped up some ham slices.  i used 5 slices cut into squares.

brown them in a dutch oven with a few glugs of good olive oil over med-low heat.

add two minced garlic cloves

cook gently for two minutes so they don't burn

add two chopped carrots, in a heart shape of course! i could only get a few to come out looking like hearts, and they didn't even notice...but still pretty cute.

add two or three celery stalks

brown them gently in dutch oven...oops forgot to tell you to chop an onion and add that too.  cook it all up over med-low heat until the veggies are nice and soft.

add carton of chicken broth

oh and i almost forgot!!! a can of rinsed white beans.  warm it all up together; add a tsp of cumin, and salt and pepper to taste and voila!! a yummy lunch for all!
