If anyone has Swiss Chard from the garden, this and also blackeyed peas, are a good recipe to use it up in. I'm looking forward to being able to have a garden one day . . .

Happy Father's Day everyone! My heavenly Father adopted me and I'm very happy with Him. I'm back from my SparkBreak and have a recipe for you. Fathers may want some all-out meat dish like pulled BBQ beef or pork, or crock pot ribs, so since that's traditional I thought I'd share something that's not.

So here is Ham and Bean Soup, from About.com's weekly emailed crock pot recipe.

/r/cpweekly36.htm

This would be so easy to make substitutions, additions, go vegetarian, etc. Personally I would use some bean other than navy, and I'd also add extra veggies. Great with kale, swiss chard, arugula, endive, etc.

Ham and Bean Soup
1 pound dried Navy beans, sorted and soaked overnight, drained
2 quarts water
1 meaty ham bone or chunks of ham
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
3/4 cup chopped celery with leaves
1/2 cup chopped onion
Combine beans and water in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer; cook just until tender. Combine beans and liquid with remaining ingredients in slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours. Serves 8.
