The Best & Easiest Crockpot Ham Bone Soup Recipe in the World!

It has been a really long time since I’ve posted a new recipe, so I thought it was about time! With Fall and cooler weather just around the corner, I’m going to share with you one of my favorite recipes for Ham Bone Soup. You are going to love this one, it is so easy and it takes no time at all to throw this in the crockpot! I found this recipe online more than 5 years ago and have been revising it ever since to suit our tastes and sometimes depending on what I have in the pantry.

Whenever I cook a ham, I always save the ham bone for this soup. Even if I’m not going to make the soup right away, I will freeze the ham bone and it works just as well. It’s almost like getting a free meal when you take it out a few weeks later and just add the veggies! Plus with our family, we usually have leftovers so this can even last for 2-3 meals!

June Monthly Dinner Menu Plan


It’s hard to believe it’s summer already! Last night I worked on our dinner menu plan for the month of June and I thought I’d share it with you. I talked a little about menu planning in my Dollars & Sense post on Saving Money at the Grocery Store if you want to check it out HERE. You can also check out my post about How I Do Menu Planning HERE.

So here is my dinner menu plan for our family for the month of June:

Keep in mind we’re very flexible and our plans change a lot! Also, you will see that I do plan for leftovers as well as on days when I know we’re going to be busy (like weekends) I do plan for frozen dinner type of meals. I know that some people prefer to have everything fresh, but this works best for our family right now and planning ahead at least helps us not to spend more on fast food! Also please note that I have linked any recipes that I’m using that are on the blog so all you have to do is click on them and you can see my recipe.

Crockpot Shepherd’s Pie Recipe

Hi everyone! I have an easy new recipe for you today, Crockpot Shepherd’s Pie. I found this recipe in a cookbook and have changed it over the years to how we like it. This is a great one to make for a busy day and just stick it in the crockpot and then it’s ready for you at dinner!

I usually make some mashed potatoes to go with it and honestly a lot of times those are just the boxed ones that you add hot water to! Those boxed mashed potatoes have saved me a lot of time over the years. I do try to make fresh whenever I can, but there are just those days when you don’t have the time. I love to serve this over mashed potatoes and sprinkled with cheese.
