It’s raining today in Southern California which is practically unheard of. It feels like it has been 80 degrees for a year straight. However, this is much needed rain and I welcome it with open arms. I actually love the rain and it makes me happy. So today I felt like making some soup. I decided on a Ham and Northern Bean soup. Here is the recipe.
