My absolute favorite slow cooker recipe is actually a soup. A rich, full-bodied split pea soup. Although pea soup can also be made meatless, it's classically prepared with diced ham or a ham hock. Tonight, I can't wait to experiment with a contemporary take on split pea, which uses a different pig product, chorizo. Since the recipe calls for a dice, buy Spanish chorizo.
It's cured and smoked, making it easier to slice, as opposed to the often-uncooked Mexican version. Try something new when you read more.
I've had apples on the brain thanks to the Apples to Apples game night I'm planning. I'm wondering, when you hear the word apple, what comes to mind, a red one or a green one?
