“Mama usually made pea soup. On Sunday nights she cooked it–and not just enough for one or two repeat performances. She made enough to last until the following Saturday. Then on Sunday, she’d cook another one. Then on Sunday, she’d cook another one. Pea soup, bread, sometimes a small portion of potatoes or meat. You ate it up, didn’t ask for more, and you didn’t complain.” (page 149)
With all that talk of soup, I thought a recipe might be in order. Perhaps this German Split Pea Soup can spark a conversation at your dinner table.
