Give peas a chance

I had a hankering for some pea and ham soup. This is a meal that I like to cook over a couple of days starting with soaking the gammon shanks in water overnight to get rid of some of the salt.

I boiled them this afternoon with an onion, some parsnips (all I had in) and a few peppercorns.

While they were cooking I started the dried peas going. We have to use dried peas because F says they taste better. I disagree but I'm outnumbered. Or something.

These two lovely ingredients combine to make this luscious greenness that I will devour with crusty bread tomorrow. Not all of it though, this pan will last a few days!

I'm pretty sure that the pictures won't insert as I intended so that's a feature I'm going to have to play with...

Mobile blogging

I've just downloaded the Blogger app for my iPhone so I thought I'd give it a try to see how well it works.

So far, the main problem has been logging into my account but it seems to be ok just now.

Maybe with my blogging tool always with me I'll be able to blog more.

Anyway, just as an experiment there should be a picture of an 800 year old Peruvian chap below...
