It's been way too long since I made this. When I first got the recipe from Dottie and made it, I thought it was dreamy delicious. I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to make it again. Oh wait, that's right, my love affair with cauliflower in soup, butternut squash bisque, and tomato, zucchini, and mushroom soups. I didn't have an opening in the soup rotation in other words. But today I pushed things out of the way. I made room.
After rinsing the peas and throwing them in a pot along with most of the other stuff and cooking for awhile, I ended up with this. A rich, thick, creamy, savory soup that still has some texture. Just as good as I remember. Maybe better.
In other Saturday business, with 2 inches left to go on the poncho, I took a knitting detour and dove into this ball of yarn that I have been wondering what to do with. Such a lovely conundrum to have.
I only have 2 ounces so decided to "expand it" with a little bit of this left over brown.
I am casting on with the brown, knitting with the colored stuff until I have one ounce left and hoping that will be enough to make a little pair of wristlets.
So far, so good.
