Pasta and Navy Bean soup- day 16

It's nice to have pasta on the menu, although it can be a little pricey. I like Tinkyada rice pasta because I can get it at the grocery store. I've heard about corn pastas but haven't tried them yet because I don't really go out of my way to find stuff. Also, I try to limit corn because I heard it's one of the highest GMOs and is in everything so I really don't want to O.D.
Once again, Newman's marinara. I am really diggin this stuff!

So, we are a smidge over halfway in this month on F$ and I have to say. I haven't been hungry once, there's been a nice variety of foods and it's been super relaxing to be told what to eat every day. This has been a little dream come true for me.

I have found a few foods that don't agree with me and has led me to make an appointment with an allergy specialist. I'm hoping that will help me solve some seemingly random issues. Scary to think I'll have to give up more foods but hopeful that I may have perfect health again soon.

On to the real story today though. Navy Bean soup with ham. Soup is good, I luv soup! I cheated and made this in the microwave and used canned beans. I couldn't imagine making 12 servings of this, simmering for hours...I really don't have the time. Sorry if you're disappointed in me, but it would have been much less frugal for me to have to toss half of this soup in the trash, no?

As it was, I had LOTS of leftover anyway!!
My last confession - I used Bacon instead of ham hocks (once again frugality on my part).

Once I'm done with this experiment, I'm going to have a nice pan of gf brownies, or maybe cupcakes. I have been missing sweets! Not dying without them, but it is one of those things I enjoy from time to time.
