12/8/10 Wednesday-what's cooking?

Last night before going to bed, I started a pot of split peas with smoked turkey neck bones, bayleaf, onion, garlic, 2 celery stalks, 3 cut up carrots, and 1/2# of beans. I started it off with some homemade chicken stock and an equal amount of water.

I boiled it for awhile, cooled it and put in the fridge to rest and continue today. When it is done, I'll add a bunch of diced turkey ham, heat through, and adjust the salt.

I like to use lots of meat in my beans so it's a full meal instead of just soup.


What are you cooking today?

It's cold as a witch's you-know-what in a brass bra today, so I think soup would be a good choice.

I went to the butcher yesterday and bought a whole beautiful ox tail, which makes me want to make ox tail soup. I have all the ingredients and the desire so.....

What am I waiting for?

We're having spaghetti with meat sauce and garlic toast. I'm all about easy lately... I've been exhausted!

Good morning everyone,

Zhizara - your soup sounds wonderful.

It's pretty cold here too, but at least it's sunny. Dinner tonight will be chicken tacos with all the fixings.

Enjoy the day

I'm making a small etouffe'. I unexpectedly have the day off, so have some rearranging to do in the kitchen and will see if I can make inroads on the office.

Thanks, Little Chef. I need to get it out of the fridge and back to simmering. It's overcast today, so pretty chilly. Maybe I'll start a chili to take over the comfort food, smell good, air warming function after the split pea soup is finished. BRRrrrrrrrrrrr.

Pulled a T'giving turkey wing out of the freezer this morning. Will add something from the hurricane food cache. Love that microwave!
