Let’s be honest any bean really goes good with pork. Some peas are an accommodation to pork as well. Today I decided to make split pea soup for the first time at home. I’ve made it for restaurants several times but never at home. I wanted this dish to be so good everyone in my house would eat it. So I figured fresh food would make it best.
I put some fresh cut ham hocks, and pork neck bones from the supermarket in a frying pan. I seared these bones in olive oil until crispy brown.
Then I put them into a saucepan. In the same oil left after searing in the frying pan, I sautéd some mire pox, peppers, and garlic, until carmilized nicely brown. I added bay leaf, spices, salt, and pepper for flavor. Once carmilized I added vegtables to pork bones in saucepan. I discarded all grease.
I then turned saucepan on medium heat. I added 5 quarts water and a bouillon cube. You can use pork, or vegtable bouillon and bring to boil for 30 minutes. Then add beans, or peas, and bring back up to 5 quarts of liquid by adding more water. Bring to boil again 30 minutes. Once done add salt and pepper and serve.
I never knew fresh ham hocks and neck bone could be so delicious in soup. I usually use smoked meat for soup but the supermarket was sold out. THIS IS A FINE EXAMPLE OF USE WHAT YOU GOT, TO GET WHAT YOU WANT. Cooking is using what you have and making it taste good. Fresh food goes a long way.
Meal prepping makes life so much easier. One of my daily snacks are fresh veggies sticks. However, no one likes a brown apple, or pear slice, in there snack pack. So I found a new way to meal prep my fruit, and vegetable snack packs to keep them fresh. This way you can save money, and keep your whole family healthy on the go. Plus it’s easy and quick.
Any fruit or vegtable that oxidized after being cut and exposed to air, I soak for 1 minute in 2 tbsp raw honey and 3 cups water. This works great for keeping your food looking fresh, until you eat it. It also cuts back on the acid taste, as if you had used lemon water. My apples, and pear slices taste like honey, instead of lemon.
Last but most importantly, before sealing up my fruit, and vegetable snack packs, I fold a paper towel and place it inside. The paper towel absorbs all moisture, and locks in freshness. I meal prep my snack packs on sunday, making one for everyday of the week. The whole family gets their own too. They last fresh all week long plus a day. So next time you want any fruit, vegtable or herb to stay fresh and crisp, you can make it happen, just by doing this.
Love is a word used on a daily basis. People tend to love as a present emotion. Rather than as an infinite silent state of mind. Love is not an action, it is a living presence. Love can be expressed through actions, but must not be replaced by them.
You see love has no space, or time. Love can grow beyond the Milky Way, or deminish smaller than a seed of mustard.
As we mature in life through wisdom of time, each human being is able to decide. Are you an alpha, or omega? Do you love, or are you love? Are you willing, or do you want to just survive?
Life is amazing despite its tragedies because of change. Another day to live, and more moments to learn how to love.
The world becomes more loving with the expansion of space and time. Love is not for everyone, if there I no will there is no way.
Love is for those willing to except that life is love and accepting it means you embrace. For some people this is not easy and that is when those omega beings step in. I wrote this for my omega who cry in the wind. Our tears of joy, and peace, evaporate in the still freedom of air. The sun, and the moon,feed our souls, as the stars, wipe our tears. No pain exists among us. No one else would understand, unless they can drink of living water, which is embodied in all humans.
You see people come and go on our earth everyday. But not all stop to think we are the water of our water world. Our bodies are what we think. Love is water. We are water. We are one love.
