Dinner:

Split Pea Soup with carrots, onions, and smoked pork shoulder that has been simmering since 2:00. Loved!

The trick to good split pea soup is to boil it really hard at the beginning, then letting it simmer until you’re ready to eat. The pork shoulder was a random (cheap) find from Publix that I thought would work really well in the soup. I just dropped the pork in at the beginning and by the time we were ready to eat the meat was falling off the bone.

Corn muffins are a must with split pea soup. I baked a batch fresh using this recipe. It was a simple recipe that yielded a very sweet corn muffin.

Next time I would halve the sugar, but Derek told me he wouldn’t change a thing.

Breyers was BOGO at Publix this week.

FYI: The Coffee Fudge Ice Cream is A.MA.ZING. Especially with a tiny sprinkle of granola for a little crunch.

Time for Gossip Girl! Yay!

But, if you would rather discuss poop and running then feel free to check out my latest post on Attune instead.

Hmm, I’ll opt for Gossip Girl.

And I’m not a fan of sweet corn bread/muffins either.

Corn muffins + split pea soup is amazing. And followed by ice cream is even better!

I don’t love corn bread muffins either….but they work with some meals! Love the idea of a soup simmering all day- good use of time πŸ™‚

20 Christine April 18, 2011 at 11:38 pm

Does your boyfriend give you crap for your Gossip Girl obsession? Mine always asks to watch it with me for the sole reason of making fun of me!
