The freezer is our friend.
After hideously long days for both Margy and me, a frozen container of yellow split pea soup was our lifeline. Yeah, it always takes longer than I expect to actually defrost and heat the soup, but I'm not complaining. I even took time out of my busy evening to make a salad to get us some nutrients. We've had some virtually vegetable-less meals of late (I'm talking to you, Corner Bistro -- your slice of iceberg doesn't count).
This was a particularly good batch of pea soup, though I can't remember when I made it exactly. It seemed like I used extra pancetta, which is always a swell idea.
