One of SPiCEY boy’s desires is “to have his own restaurant”. With a nasty headache, I wasn’t really up to the task of a full fledged meal myself, but I REALLY wanted a hardy meal like split pea soup.
Soooo … SPiCEY boy was enlisted to help stir, chop and ensure we followed the recipe (in general) so we could eat something. 🙂
It took a bit of extra time, but it was nice teamwork and it made my day to see my son happily chopping and working with spices in the kitchen.
The only thing that will make it better is when our own tomatoes, carrots, celery etc. are ready to harvest for a batch truly made from our garden.
I am happy to say that the “green ribbon garnish” on the top, came from our very own moringa tree which was recently gifted to us. It is one of my prize garden items.
If you are not familiar with this tree – it is a must have for all it’s nutrients it provides and the uses to which you can put it. More details to follow in another post.
Below, the split pea recipe we loosely followed:
We subbed ham for bacon since it is what we had, SPiCEY son loves to add “his own blend of spices” and the SPiCEY guys decided chunky was just as fine.

May you know the SPiCE in life.
