I’ve been meaning to share this for a long, long time. It is my prised recipe, one which was partially from my Mom but which I have adapted, and it is so, so good. Not too saucy, not too cheesy, but just perfect. It is the tastiest lasagna ever!
When I was growing up, my mom would make Split Pea Soup every winter. Now that I’m a student with low funds and a lack of time, she’s passed on the recipe to me and it is truly one of my favorite things to make. It is so tasty, takes so little effort, is very affordable to make, and is really good for you! A lot better than pizza, anyway.
Two years ago, when I was away at University and faced with hosting my own Thanksgiving dinner, I did a lot of research. What I came up with was a blend of three different recipes which, when combined, has blessed me with the juiciest, most tasty and tender turkey for three years in a row.
The season may be over, but I couldn’t leave it behind without sharing my family stuffing recipe!
Oh you British weather you, with your fake sunshine and sudden showers.
Winter is most definitely here in England. You know when it arrives because you suddenly need a new umbrella (I swear I just bought one), but the shops are all sold out of them. Parts of campus begin to resemble a large pond. Normal shoes are no longer an option – they must be waterproof and at least cover your ankles. Everyone begins to resemble multi-coloured penguins in their thick coats. The temptation to fill up with warm, thick food becomes difficult to resist.
The leaves get brighter, the days get chillier, and you can practically taste the holidays just around the corner…
For Uni students, tis the month for essays. And working. And wedding planning. And almost but not quite catching up on that reading you’ve been trying to stay on top of all term.
