Homey and Comforting Soup, my Momma’s recipe is perfect on these chilly weekend days!
I’m taking my son to the movies for the first time tonight! I can’t even wait..I’m not sure which one of us is more excited! These little mommy-son dates are some of the best parts of being a mom..yesterday we got to go on TWO dates to Starbucks..big things I know, but when it’s time for just the two of us to hang out without my husband or other son, it means so much more, especially since I can devote my full attention to him. I genuinely look forward to these moments. He’s getting so big so fast, and he’s so smart and I’m going to cry the day that he thinks these mom-son dates are lame. Because they’re not, darnit!
So last year I posted a recipe that was my Mom’s. And I’m happy I did, because I go back to it often, and I love her cooking. Don’t we just adore our parents cooking the most? Anyways, there are lots of things over the years, that she’s made over and over, but she never writes a darn thing down, my dad and I always give her grief about it! And I don’t ever want to lose her recipes, even the most simple ones. So this year, I’m going to start featuring some of her recipes, so that I have them, always. This blog is for you, but it’s also for me to document family favorites..one’s that I never want to lose!
This soup, might be a simple one to you, but my Mom’s pea soup is the only one I’ll eat. So I’m saving it here, and I’m sharing it with you! I love the ginormous chunks of ham in it, and that she doesn’t completely puree it, I like me some texture! This particular soup isn’t the most beautiful soup, but don’t let that fool you, because it sure is mighty tasty! It’s also incredible easy..there is not that much work involved, which I kind of like too! Give it a try 🙂
