Pease Porridge Hot

Okay, this is the last layout dedicated to Belle and her history lesson. I remember singing this song when I was a child and now I know what it means. Very interesting history lessons, Belle. Thanks again for the inspiration to do these fun layouts.


In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always hung over the fire. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot. They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes stew had food in it that had been there for quite a while. Hence the rhyme:

"Pease porridge hot, pease porridge cold, pease porridge in the pot nine days old".



Supplies Used:

JRA Parterre Paper Super Mini -- Paper2

JRA Parterre Collection -- Paint Cluster, Stacked Frame, Birds, Sunray Butterfly

Picture and words to the song were found on the internet.

Wonderful, Carol! I used to sing that song too and never knew what it meant until Belle's history lesson either! And, thanks to your layout, I've been singing it to myself all morning now! I love the salmon colors in your layout - so pretty!
