Bon appetit? .... yum! What's on your menu?

Scratch split pea soup.

When I was a youngster I had a bowl of split pea soup at an Anderson's restaurant. It was very good. For many years afterward I tried to create a batch of split pea soup that was as good. Two or three decades later, by accident, I think, I achieved a soup that I think was even tastier than I remember having at Anderson's.

That's funny I had a similar experience! I was about 9 or 10 , my mom took me to a little Jewish restaurant and I was feeling a little puny. The owner came out and personally recommended his split pea soup. It was the best soup I've ever had to this day and still can't come close.
It was a cream of pea soup....much creamier that you buy in a can

I think my split pea soup recipe is in the recipe thread. Give it a try... very creamy. I don't think I've ever had good soup out of a can, except for maybe tomato soup.

Congratulations...29 years is pretty good now a days.... wishing you many more years, hope you enjoy your pizza... hugs

It's been raining like crazy here all day too... all I want to do is snooze.... but got up early enough to make me a small pot of chicken, veggies and dumplings.... was gonna make it with spatzels, but dough was a little too hard and didn't feel like playing with it... so spooned it in the boiling water and made dumplings instead
Heated a can of chicken broth, shredded my small piece of carrot and small piece of celery and chopped my green onion and boiled all in hot water until tender and put in with the broth.... then made the dough and dropped by spoonful in to boiling water and when done... threw it in with the broth and veggies... Walla.... chicken, veggies and dumplings... easy peasy.
It poured so much we didn't leave the house. Doing it again today (although today I had to go to work.) And thanks!

I also had a similar experience as both of you, only difference was it was with "Summer Borscht"(made with beet greens and bacon)..... I was about 9 and was at my Uncle and Aunts and she made it and I loved it.... after I got married found out hubby's family made the same borscht... so it was great, I learned how from MIL and to this day one of my favorite soups.

Our bakery made fresh Cornish Pastries today so picked up a couple and made a small pan of gravy to go with.... later will have some cauliflower and cream cheese sauce.... the pastry is filling and no room for the cauliflower... when tummy settles will eat some of that.

Haha! Deb and I did go to "our" pizza place last night. We usually share a small pizza, but she doesn't like pepperoni and black olive pizzas, so I eat whatever she chooses. Well, last night I decided I was going to get my own small pizza, and she could get hers. Little did I know that Tuesdays are BOGO!!! (Buy One Get One free) It was perfect...........we each ate half of our pizzas and brought the rest home for either lunch today or dinner again tonight. God is so good............even in the little things, isn't He????

Hi all, I'm baaaack! Pretty tired still. Got in safely on Monday afternoon, did laundry in between naps, some groceries. Our luggage even arrived safely, undamaged and at the same time we did. Air Canada is improving since the govt passed a law making them pay for damaged luggage.

Made oxtail soup for dinner tonight.

Glad to be home. G's health issues were more stressful for both of us than we had anticipated. He doesn't cope well with stress anymore, nor noise, lots of people or heat and humidity. Thankfully we had a quiet cabin with good air conditioning but we will have to think carefully and plan very carefully around these issues for any next times. I'm not the one who likes travel so it's harder for him to contemplate. I'm happy to stay home in my preferred hermit like existence but he loves travel so there's changes up ahead but we will manage. And I will try not to look too cheery at the thought of not traveling.

Going to go see what has been happening around the world in our forums here now. I gag at the thought, but we have some more years to endure Justin Trudeau. Could be worse I suppose, and at least we are out of all the ads, phone calls and constant electioneering. Can't imagine the pain of the poor Israeli's facing a third election this year, one per season.
