I’ve been yearning for some yellow pea soup. Yesterday was cold and rainy and Monday morning rather cool, so I made a big batch and had some for lunch. The recipe, posted years ago in an e-newsletter by Nordic Needle (a stitching business that is no longer what it was), calls it typical of Swedish pea soups. I used split yellow peas, and so I did not have to do an overnight soak. I always add celery and carrots. I replaced the salt pork (too salty for my dietary needs) with some chunks of ham shank—with some bones—that I found at the store yesterday. At the end of cooking, they are removed, the meat cut from the bone, then replaced in the soup. It’s seasoned fifteen minutes before it is done with thyme and marjoram. I estimated on the water, and I would use a little less next time, as I like a very thick soup, but it tasted delicious, and I’ll be eating it happily the rest of the week,2+June 10, 2019 at 4:04 pm #16550

I made a recipe from 12Tomatoes, a site new to me. IT’s called Cowboy Trifle, and I made it for a potluck my husband attended. It a layered dish like the more common Death by Chocolate dessert trifle, and serves a crowd. I made a few changes, natch! I made cornbread from scratch, and then layered black beans, then whole kernal corn, and then a layer of home-made salsa (tomatoes, onions, green pepper, chipotle powder) topped with shredded cheddar, drizzled with a Ranch-mayo mix, and sprinkled with chopped bacon. I think next time I would skip the bacon, but add sliced black olives. It was really good, and the group at the potluck liked it.3+June 13, 2019 at 5:19 pm #16610
