That's the Way, Uh Huh Uh Huh I Like It

I dig browsing the dried goods aisle where they keep the beans, rices and grains. I know making a big pot of almost any bag of beans will be good but its hard to really want it. Hmmm, its not cold enough yet to just want a warm bowl of anything, so I tried the Yellow Split Peas. Figured it could be cool looking if nothing else. And it was! Also super luscious and velvety. I did homemade croutons for the top with Parmesan cheese. Kick it! I seasoned it with a ham bone and smoked turkey necks. I always add extra celery, carrots and onions because I like forward, brave flavors. I'm not a delicate cook, although I admire that too. Its not me though. I like a big burger with cheese and bacon but also pickle, tomato and onion. I like a good mayo ketchup blend on the bun but wouldn't kick you if you added mustard on the other side. I like a pizza with pepperoni and mushroom but give me sausage, onions and olives on that. I like an omelet with tomato and feta but hell while you're up, put me in some ham and diced bell peppers too. I don't want it all but certainly am a fan of the 'loaded' version of things. Like oatmeal cookies, I like raisins but also give me chocolate chips and nuts too - hey throw some toasted coconut in there. While you're at it give me a Seltzer but add some cranberry juice and squeeze in some fresh lime and a dash of orange juice. Yep, that's the way I like it.
