If you happened to be curious

The risk taking with the soup? It’s amazeballs. It’s the perfect thick consistency, it has all the right mix of flavors melding into this fantastic oneness, no extra spicing needed (I added a pinch of kosher salt when I remembered, early on). It’s delicious, and I’m going to be enjoying it all week (and freezing some for later lunches and dinners).

So leap in, take a chance, and enjoy the results. Okay?

In case you’re curious, the recipe was…

Rainbow Split Pea Soup

1 leftover ham bone, lots of ham still attached
1 bag of split peas, rinsed and sorted
1 large or two small onions, chopped
2 heaping spoonfuls of garlic (from a jar, scooped out with a regular spoon)
1 watermelon radish, chopped into 1/2″ bites
~ 1/2 to 1 c chopped turnips
~ 1/2 to 1 c chopped carrots
healthy sized pinch of kosher salt
5 cups water

Put it all in the crockpot and cook until done. Separate meat from the bone and put the meat back in. You can add some seared kielbasa after the fact if you like (make it small bites before searing). Serve with bread (if you can eat the gluten and carbs) and salad!

About D. E. Atwood

When D.E. Atwood was in second grade, she finally grew tall enough to see the shelf above the mysteries in the bookmobile. She discovered a rich landscape of alternate worlds, magic, and space and has never looked back from the genres of fantasy and science fiction. When she was twelve, she declared that she was going to be a writer, and share the stories that she saw happening all around her. She wanted to create characters that others would care about, and that would touch their lives, like the books that she read had touched her own life. Today she has combined her interests, creating genre stories about the people who live next door, bringing magic into the world around us. When not writing, D.E. Atwood is a mother (to two children and a cat), a wife, a reader, a knitter, a systems administrator, a roleplayer, and a music aficionado. Sleep, she claims, is optional.
