107/365, POTD - Rolling boil

Another cold, dreary and damp spring day. Perfect for Split Pea soup, something I only make after Christmas and Easter's Ham dinner.

Maybe you can see the rolling boil of the water and the steam coming off the surface.

And what happens when the water boils over a little? These cool yellow flames erupt. Of course, if too much water boils over, you snuff out the flame and have a mess. I didn't let things get too out of hand tonight.

Only Scott and I really enjoy the soup. The kids are turned off by the green color and the knowledge that peas (and carrots) went into making the soup. Just more for the two of us!

Yum! It was a perfect day for soup here, too! My kids are like yours, though and wouldn't want to eat it, but I sure would! Love the shot of the flame under the pot!

That looks yummy and I don't even like pea soup!

Boy, that sounds good! Silly kids--they have no idea what they are missing.

Very tasty looking! You did capture the flame, and the steam, wonderfully! Both make photos of soup look dramatic!
