Broken bones make good soup. Recipe below.

Have you ever broken a bone?

No. To the prompt question. Thank GOD ❤️

For thank GOD no one in my family has had a broken bone on my side of the family or in my husband’s that I am aware of.

Soup bones came to my mind.

The bones that get broken are chicken, pork, lamb, fish, turkey, or beef. I am sorry to say that for anyone who eats meat. I have tried to for about a year. It didn’t set well with, and I lost energy. 😕

But for this recipe from “serious eats” were cut. Still tasty though 😋

Roasted Marrow Bones

Serves6 servings


  • 2 to 3 pounds (907g to 1360g) beef marrow bones, split lengthwise or cut crosswise into 2-inch segments
  • 1 cup (28g) pickled flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) champagne vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Flaky sea salt
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Toasted slices of bread
  • Pickled Mustard Seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F (232ºC). Place marrow bones, marrow side up, on a tray or in an ovenproof skillet. Roast until bones are lightly browned, about 20 minutes. (Some fat will render from the marrow, but majority of marrow should stay in the bone.)
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, toss parsley with vinegar and olive oil.
  3. Sprinkle bones with salt and pepper. Serve bones immediately, with toasts, pickled mustard seeds, and parsley salad.

Hebrews 11:6

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

King James Version (KJV)

Pray for in all things to GOD for HIS protection at all times in all we do. Pray for excellent health and healing when you need it! Stay safe and sound. And may the only broken bones you see will be like in this recipe. (Even though these were cut! 🙂)

Peace and blessings ❤️
