Meal Kit Menus & Kitchen Notes

Weekly Meal Kit | January 9

Hi, friends! We couldn’t source enough split peas for your soup, so we supplemented with black-eyed peas, a traditional food for a lucky New Year! And, y’all, it’s delicious: creamy, broken-down split pea soup, rich with a soffritto of onion, celery and carrot, spiced with warming cumin and turmeric, toasty from some local lager, and with a toothy bite from black-eyed peas. And with a mustard seed chili oil drizzled on top? Perfection, y’all.

Hopefully, this sparks a little holiday joy for y’all and maybe, just maybe, the start of your own new tradition.

So, please enjoy your cute little lasagna bundles, and let us know what you think! They pair beautifully with two of our older faves, the Austrian stew and jambalaya, too, for a rounded and tasty week! Happy Eating!
