Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Soup Supper

It was cool today on the prairie --
Well, cool isn't the correct word,
cold was!

The morning started out in the teens
Soup seemed the perfect supper

In my "Cooking With Ina" mode, I selected her Parker's Split Pea Soup
Not the first time I made it, it is a favorite of ours
And leftovers for lunch the next day or two are even better

With a bouquet of orange tulips on the breakfast room table,
that is something that Ina would approve!

I half the recipe -- using only 1 pound of split peas rather than two
It's more than enough for a supper and at least two lunches
And it is really good!

 It comes from the "original" -- 
The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook
It's where I found Ina all those years ago!

And tonight, 

We're enjoying the tree of 2016
The "best tree ever" in our opinion
Tomorrow it comes down!

That looks delicious. You are so right about soup! This is the time of the year it is perfect.

I just cancelled my email subscription to your blog. I wanted you to know it isn't because I don't enjoy your blog. I just couldn't keep up with it via email. I have you bookmarked and will read you regularly. I feel a kinship to you because you are in Kansas and I am in Missouri. It is not only cold here but we have a totally unexpected snow. Very pretty.
