Sometimes I have time to make all this from scratch... Sometimes I don't have a lot of time and I use the semi homemade version and sometimes I am just broke and grocery day is still two days away and I need something hearty that will last two days.

    Everything from here is up to your best judgment. I usually use a chicken left over from dinner. So I pick it clean bite size pieces. Toss some butter on top of it and then add it to the jar of beans I purchased. Sometime I feel like the large jar sometimes the small jar. I let this simmer on the stove while the Bear Creek cooks.

    After the soup is finished I add the beans and chicken. And then spice it with dill and s&p to taste. I sometimes need to add more or less water. Depends on my mood do I want it thick and creamy or a bit more runny...
