I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

So the most famous person in Presque Isle county is some dude from ossenieke who made dinosaur gardens? I'm gonna go with the guy who discovered limestone or the guy who was the mastermind behind the world's largest limestone quarry. Gotta be local tie there somewhere? basically the reason Alpena and Presque Isle counties are on the map.

Eaton County, some actor born in 1873. Disappointing. I was born in Sparrow hospital, so I guess I'll claim Ingham and Magic if anyone asks.

Jordan Weiber, she'll be even more famous if Nassar put his hands on her, hopefully that's not the case.

I'm surprised that Paul Carey got the Isabella nod over John Engler (pride of Beal City).

Me? I'm stuck with Kid Rock based on where I live now, or David Spade based on where I grew up.
