You either love it or not... let's face it, it does not look all that appetizing, army green colored food is usually not so pretty.
I think it's the reason I cook a ham, so the bone can be made into soup... ham, a popular food around Christmas and New Years always lends itself to a delicious pea soup - and a shortage of finding dry peas in the store! I'm cooking a pot right now, first of the season, house smells delicious and with some crusty bread ~ OH. SO. GOOD.
