Split Peas with Bacon and Onion (not soup); A Good Day… — 8 Comments

  1. I LOVE split peas! My mom, being a frugal single parent, would make split pea soup on a regular basis. Never had them as a side, tho. Might just have to try it!
    SO glad your day went well. You were due.

  2. Isn’t this what the English call “mushy peas”?
    I’m particularly fond of yellow split peas — and now you’ve got me thinking. It’s snowing again. I have a chunk of ham in the fridge. Hmmm ….

  3. In French Canada, split peas are used a lot, especially in soup.
    Looks like a French version of dal! Very healthy and tasty.
    Hooray for cabinets! Your man works fast.

  4. Mmmmmm!! Split peas, bacon and onion… sounds delicious. Legumes are great, aren’t they?
    We have just rediscovered the wonders of black-eyed peas Indian style. I had them tonight as leftovers on couscous instead of rice. It turns out that couscous goes very well with black-eyed peas curry (made pretty much the same way as dahl). I love the almost wild flavour of black-eyed peas.
    Glad to hear that you’re legal! AND that you can happily test the bathroom door handle once more.

  5. An excellent recipe to keep your strength up during all the renovations. Haven’t had this in years – really no more difficult than opening a can.
    Thanks for making the time from your crazy workload to share this old-fashioned favorite for MLLA8!
    (Hat’s off to you both for taking on the monumental toil and disruption of major renovations. Just had a good look as some of your in-progress photos – wanted to cry! Of course, it’ll all be amazing when it’s over. : })

  6. Cindy, I love split pea soup, and this, was equally good!
    Charlotte, are these mushy peas??? I didn’t know!!!
    Tigerfish, I always thought mushy peas were fresh… Now I know.
    Lynn, slowly… someday…
    Natashya, where I grew up we had Split Pea Days in summer
    Elizabeth, I’ve never had black-eyed peas…
    Susan, don’t cry… it might make me start ;’))
