    a really nice recipe! as a shift worker i usually make this before i go to work and leave it on for the day. a few alterations i make are chicken breasts (just because they are easier!) and frozen peas instead of marrow fat and split peas but a really nice recipe that you can pretty much add anything too!  -  21 Jan 2013
