I told you Split Pea Soup would be seen on the blog in the very near future. There’s something about this bowl of green mush that just makes me so happy.
Thanks to my Quick & East Split Pea Soup recipe I was able to make a quick batch of soup right after I got off of work.
I didn’t have any ham on hand, but I did have the Boccalone Salami from my Foodbuzz swag bag that I knew would be the perfect replacement.
The salami was the perfect salty addition to mushy soup.
1.5 hours later
While the soup was simmering I got to work baking a batch of Pumpkin Cornbread (recipe found here).
I highly suggest you give this recipe a shot. It was a nice twist on the classic cornbread recipe.
This afternoon I had a bag of PopChips at work.
I have been diligently teaching Maddie how to play fetch for a few weeks now and this afternoon she finally grasped the concept!
Unfortunately when I tried to film her new talent she was more interested in the camera then fetching! Oh well. The video was still adorable and proved that Miss Maddie is a little camera diva.
Take a look for yourself! (If you are in google reader you need to click to the blog to see it)
