Happy Canada Day

And to celebrate, how about a competition? Lets make this fun and simple. How about we find the best recipe for lasagne? Who doesn’t like lasagne? Any takers, there is a corner over there and a paper bag to pull over your head while the rest of us play. 

Rules. It has to be good. It can be out of a book, but in that case, please give credit to the author. It can be traditional Italian, or otherwise. It can be vegetarian. So we post a recipe here and people try it out and rate it from 1-10 with 10 being high. 

I think this will have to be a competition lasting until Thanksgiving as people will need to try out different recipes. Oh, and because there are two Thanksgiving dates, lets go with the American one in November and not the Canadian one in October. 

Prize? How about a copy of one of my ebooks for the recipe with the highest score? I will have another one out by the end of the competiton, so there will be a bigger selection. 

Anyone like to start? Please post here in the comments. I will put my favorite recipe tomorrow.

Split green pea soup

One cup of dried spit green peas to four cups of water.

Add to that, half a cup of onions, lightly sweated and a quarter of a teaspoonful of jalapeno peppers, parsley and fennel leaves.

When boiling, add in a quarter of a teaspoon full of black pepper, a pinch of sugar, and a chicken stock cube.

Cook for about twenty minutes. Add two tablespoons of sour cream. Yum.
