Pretty much a textbook fall day here today. The high has been only 53F and it's been raining off and on, along with a hefty breeze. Can you say, "fall?"
In view of this, I put on a big pot of split peas with onions, garlic, bay leaf and a couple of monstrous ham hocks. That's been simmering nicely and I just took a pan of cornmeal yeast rolls out of the oven to go along with the soup. There's still plenty of vanilla pound cake for dessert. We'll be just fine.
