Personal Notes:
This is the original recipe for Pea Soup from Pea-Soup Andersen in Buellton, California. This is reminiscent of many trips to Solvang, the big shoe, and of course Abelskievers. While this is the original recipe, I usually spice it up a bit with more salt and pepper when served, and usually swirl through more than a dash of the red pepper sauce.
