The sad thing is people on bridge cards can afford to eat better than hard working lower middle class people

Ugh- no!

When my little brother and I were kidlins, mom lost her mind and gave us split pea soup for lunch once. Whaaa?

I spent a goodly amount of time sneaking my soup into his soup by the spoonful every time she turned her back.

The green trail of pea soup droplets gave me away and I got a brain duster for my trouble.

If James and I somehow ended up with bowls of split pea soup, I'd do it again.

Split pea soup is like butternut squash. It is just a base. If that is all you do with it, then it isn't going to have much flavor to it. I do a split pea and sausage soup that is pretty tasty. Butternut squash I still have a hard time coming up with an upscale combination of flavors to layer into it to not have it as mostly that odd flavored butternut squash as the dominant thing on the palate.

Potatoes, cabbage, Spam, garlic powder and salt.
^^^ Made this last night.

5 medium russets peeled & cubed

1 head of cabbage washed, cored & quartered

½ can Great Value luncheon loaf (Spam) small chunked.

1 onion diced

2 pork bullion cubes, crushed

1.5 cups water

6qt instant pot... Recipe called for 3 minutes...I did 6 which was a little too much but fine. Next time I'll try 4.

5 minute natural release.

I did a dump and go straight to pressure but you could saute the spam onion and even cabbage...then pressure cook.

Optional...I added a water & cornstarch slurry to create a thicker broth.

.75 for potatoes, .50 onion, 2.00 for cabbage (.62/# x 3), 1.00 for spam (1.92/can /2) and .75 for bullion and cornstarch

$5 feeds five people twice.

Not the recipe exactly ... but the approximate nutrition.
