Ready to have a go at warm, comforting foods to tide you through the cold and damp of January? Me too, except that we are expecting temperatures in the 50s today for an early January thaw. Really early, since we haven't actually had very cold weather yet!
I am starting dinner now -- split pea soup with ham. I have 3 Egyptian guests arriving at the end of the week, and I thought it best to find a way to use up the rest of the New Year's Day ham before they arrive. So the peas are soaking and the broth is bubbling.
What's cooking in your part of the world?
