Just Can't Escape The Pig

You won't believe what I made for supper. Split pea soup with-- yep-- ham. I could hardly believe it myself. But there is just too much of my German grandmother in me to waste that meat. I was glad to see that the soup finished off the last of the ham-- it was quite tasty too.

Then just when I thought I had escaped pig for awhile, after supper my 3 year old pulled out a puzzle, looked at this piece and said, "Why does that apple have a pig in it?" Maybe I'm not the only one who had too much ham this weekend.

My mom used to make split pea with ham, I never tried it. Do you have a good recipe that you can share?

She's right, the nose on that worm is very piggish. Conrgratulations on finishing off the meat. Veggies for the rest of the week?

Gosh, reading about the ham, I think I'd have felt a bit "piggy" too. But, I do love Split Pea soup. That is my favorite.

Split Pea soup with ham didn't sound so bad until I read your previous post about all the meat you've eaten recently. BLah! Hope some other foods become options in the days to come. :-)

Mary,
I'm from the land of "waste not, want not", and making do with what's on hand, too.

I remember my Mom eating the chicken back because that was about all that was left after 5 girls and Dad picked over the platter. Sometimes she wouldn't even take that, she would give up her portion to one of us or a guest.

I need to work on being that unselfish, myself.

Oooh! I love meat, too. But after a few days like yours? I'd be thinking salads. Fruit salads, bean salads, pasta, anything w/o a lot of meat.

Cute little "piggie", though! ;)

Yummmmm, that's my very favorite thing to do with left-over ham. I probably would have made a ton of split pea soup and frozen most of it.

Congratulations on getting through all that meat!
