Here's something I whipped up last Winter.
It's my Split Pea Soup. That's not pee soup people; you couldn't split pee if you tried.
You put your split peas, water, carrots, onions, hock(s), and seasonings of your choice into a crock pot. Note that I did not say "celery." I do NOT use celery. Read why here.
|No, that's not a volcano in the middle; that's the hock!|
Put the lid on and slow cook the hell of out of the concoction. The hardest part is cutting all the yummy, porky goodness from the hock bone but it is worth all the effort (which in reality, isn't that much effort at all).
The beauty that appears many hours later looks like this:
|You can't tell from the picture but there is NO celery in there. And guess what. It's still delicious!|
I've just now realized that I've blogged about this exact batch of soup before. You can read more about my thoughts on peas if you are so inclined.
This will probably be my last post for the haters during NIAFPHFPPW Week. I have 9 million (literally) errands this weekend and a wedding to attend. No time for blogging when real life takes over.
